Vice President Mike Pence said he had a good laugh after finding out about the uninvited guest at his debate with Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
The insect landed on the vice president’s head during the latter half of Wednesday’s debate and remained there for nearly two minutes, setting off a flurry of memes, jokes, and other reactions across social media.
“I didn’t know he was there,” Pence told Fox News host Dana Perino through laughter on Monday.
“I love my kids. I got a law school grad who is going to get married next year. I got a Navy wife who’s a published author and an incredible gal. My daughter actually helped me with debate prep, and my Marine Corps son and his wife were there as well. They all told me, ‘Dad, you did OK,’ but they did tell me about the fly,” Pence said.
“It was a good laugh for all of us,”
