Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro blamed Vice President Mike Pence for a fly that appeared in his TV studio at the Miraflores on Sunday, describing its presence as a form of “imperialist aggression.”
During last week’s vice-presidential debate between Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a fly landed on Pence’s hair and remained there for around a minute. The incident led to widespread mockery from the liberal media, despite the fact that flies have previously landed on both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during important addresses.
The fly also caught the attention of Maduro, who noticed a fly in the TV studio as he was delivering his live propaganda address to the nation.
“There is a fly out there,” he declared. “Mike Pence’s fly came here to Miraflores … It is trying to hit me on the head. No, no, fly, [in English] go home. This is another imperialist aggression!”
