Last night the US aired the vice-presidential debate between Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence. The debate proved to be a far more civil event than last week's Presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
The two seemed two frequently butt heads, with Trump managing to avoid important questions while throwing jabs at Biden about his son's drug usage to which Biden struggled to respond, resulting in a confusing and rather disappointing debate session.
Harris and Pence, however, displayed a much more civil behavior toward each other with Harris only finding herself once telling Pence that she is speaking after he had interrupted her during her turn to talk.
While both raised pretty good points around political issues in the country, such as police brutality, Covid-19 and the war between China and the US, many people seemed thoroughly concerned about a fly that had parked its self on Pence's head for nearly two-minutes during the debate.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on both the debate and the fly, some of which you can read below.
"Love how a fly landed on Pence's head & stayed there as he went on about how no cops are racist & there's no implicit bias!"
"I wish Kamala had just turned to the camera and said “this behavior right here-Pence hijacking the time from the moderator and stealing time from me- defines his character. Defines how he treats women. Proves that he doesn’t believe rules apply to him. Just like Trump."
Even Megan Thee Stallion weighed in, saying:
"Pence’s response to the question “did Breonna Taylor receive justice” was disgusting #VicePresidentialDebate"
Briefly.co.za also reported, The United States of America (USA) presidential elections will be held one month from now and candidates are selling their ideas with just a few weeks to go. After US President Donald Trump faced off with his rival Joe Biden who is the Democratic nominee, it was time for their running mates to debate on Wednesday, October 7.
While the stage featured plexiglass barriers to curb the spread of COVID-19, an unlikely intruder - a fly, stole the show as Vice President Mike Pence and his counterpart Kamala Harris discussed various topics of interest.
The fly briefly buzzed around the stage before landing and staying on Mike Pence’s head and netizens were quick to notice it making the insect an internet sensation.
