The most memorable moment from Wednesday evening’s vice presidential debate between current VP Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) wound up having nothing to do with policy or platforms. Instead, the evening was stolen by a fly that landed on Pence’s head and remained there for over two minutes:
Not long after the fly stole the show, the Biden-Harris campaign began offering fly swatters in return for campaign contributions:

Trumpists will be using this on the cable propaganda network tomorrow as evidence that the fly was a “Democrat ‘Plant'” and set up in advance.

Joe Biden is getting $5 from me tonight in honor of the fly!
That clip of that winged little creature on Mike Pence’s head is going to leave a mark.
