When Vice-president Mike Pence participated in the presidential debate with candidate Kamala Harris on Oct. 7, a show-stealing fly perched his head unknowingly. Pence and Harris met for debate separated by a Plexiglas in an isolated room while president Donal Trump recuperated from COVID-19 at the White House. It was the only scheduled debate between the two and there were some significant exchanges including Pence faulting Harris (D-Calif.) for racial disparities in her prosecution while she was the district attorney of San Francisco. However, the presence of a fly eclipsed everything important that happened during the argument. The fly as it sits atop Mike Pence during his dialogue made headlines and stirred a sensational frenzy on social media. Pence initially did not comment on the issue, but he has since opened up about the fly.

As per Pence, a father of three adult children, he did not feel the fly and only learned about it being there on his from his kids after the debate. “They all told me, ‘Dad, you did okay,’ but they did tell me about the fly. It was a good laugh for all of us,” Pence said. The black horsefly sat on Pence’s neatly combed gray hair for 2 minutes and 9 seconds as he debated Democratic vice presidential candidate, Sen. Kamala Harris, in Salt Lake City.

Vice President Mike Pence opened about on the issue on Monday saying he wasn’t aware of the fly that sat atop his head during last week’s vice presidential debate. “I didn’t know he was there,” Pence told Fox News host Dana Perino in a Columbus Day interview from Ohio.
