(CMR) The vice presidential debate held on Wednesday (October 7) should have seen names like Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence trending on Twitter but instead it was all about a fly.
Yes, a regular household fly that mysteriously landed on Pence's head towards the end of the debate became the star of the show and a trend on Twitter.
The fly came to a rest on Pence's full white hair during the segment of the discussion where the candidates were talking about systemic racism.
Since the fly's appearance the the words “the fly” has been tweeted and retweeted having gone viral.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden wasted no time in taking full advantage of the popularity of the fly, registering the domain “flywillvote.com”.
