The Fly & Pink Eye: Twitter Reacts To The Vice Presidential Debate
Wednesday night’s vice presidential debate was full of lies, a fly and maybe pink eye.
The event, held at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, was a more civil one compared to last week’s presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Senator Kamala Harris held her own and let Vice President Mike Pence know she wasn’t going to tolerate disrespect, at one point even telling him “Vice President I’m speaking, I’m speaking” when he interrupted her.
Pence on the other hand didn’t answer any of the questions, looked like he was getting pink eye and at one point had a fly land on his head and didn’t feel it.
Jemele Hill said it best when she tweeted: “I know ya’ll see that fly on Mike Pence’s head. makes sense since flies are attracted to shit.”
I know y’all see that fly on Mike Pence’s head. Makes sense since flies are attracted to shit.

Needless to say The Fly, I’m Speaking, Thank You Vice President (because the moderator Susan Fage sucked) were trending on Twitter. We’ve rounded up some of the best reactions below.
That fly is an American hero.

Thank You Vice President
This moderator needs to stop saying “Thank you Vice President Pence” and start saying “Your time is up Pence now shut the fuck up”

Susan “thank you Vice President pence” is not getting it done. Who moderates the moderator?
— Jay Ellis (@JayREllis) October 8, 2020
If I hear this moderator say: “Thank you Vice President Pence” one more time I’m going to SCREAM!
It’s not working Susan Page, drop the polite passive act & act like a Black Auntie please!
“Go over your time again & watch me come over there Mike!” He’ll shut up then! #VPDebate
