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.”

Someone give the fly that sat on Pence’s head a raise— Loey ✨𓆏 (@Loeybug) October 8, 2020
Note that the fly respected the time limits more than Pence did. https://t.co/nGgOgaZvkh— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) October 8, 2020
Congratulations to the fly on Mike Pence's head for experiencing more human contact than I have since March— Jason O. Gilbert (@gilbertjasono) October 8, 2020
Who do you think got to tell Pence about the fly? Do you think that conversation has happened yet? Do you think it’s still happening? I’m going to have such sweet dreams about this.— Meaghan Oppenheimer (@MoppyOpps) October 8, 2020
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.
