Fly Caught in the Spotlight as It Lands on Pence’s Head During the Debate

There was one thing that caught attention from the vice presidential debate on Wednesday night — not Vice President Mike Pence or Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), but a fly.

It was unfazed as it stayed on Pence’s head while he debated Harris.

Check out the video below:

Shortly after, several Twitter accounts were created for the fly, who got “a great seat at the debate,” as the bio reads for the Front Row Seat account.

“Everyone jealous because I got the best seat for the debate tonight,” one tweet read.

Another tweet read, “I already had to get tested before they let me into the debate. I’m Covid free.”

While the fly rested on Pence’s head during the debate, it caught the attention of many on social media.

Check out some of the reactions below:

Among the topics during the debate, Harris and Pence pushed back against each other regarding the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as IJR reported.


  1. GC – I’m not going to claim that anything that Alex Jones says is worth anything, but I’ve watched a lot of horror movies and it kind of fits.

    When you see someone with red eyes and flies on them, it’s usually a sign that something bad is going to happen. It wasn’t a good look for him.

  2. Yes, Ed. Remember back in 2016 what Alex Jones said about Obama?

    Jones accused Obama of being in a room, could be surrounded by 100 people, and he would be the only one to have flies on him because, you know, demons and things. Jones Twitter feed is gone, but we can still see quotes of this.

  3. IJR posts something as stupid as this but ignores meaningful news that is reported.

  4. I thought that the fly won the debate. Twitter wasn’t pleased, though. They shut down the fly’s Twitter account almost immediately.
