The smallest living creature—even a fly—can have a huge effect. A fly that landed on Republican Mike Pence’s head during the vice-presidential debate Wednesday night broke the internet and people are creating meme after meme about this. Talk about bad optics!

Bored Panda has collected some of the best memes about the now-infamous fly, so scroll on down and upvote your fave ones. What did you think of Pence’s debate with Democrat Kamala Harris? Share your thoughts in the comment section; just remember to keep it civil, Pandas!

The fly stayed on Vice-President Pence’s head for around 2 minutes and caused late-night shows and the media to comment about it in great detail. What’s more, the word ‘flies’ started trending on Twitter while someone actually created an account for Mike Pence’s Fly (it has nearly 100k followers and appears to be a Biden/Harris supporter).

In this pick, he looks like a cadaver at a funeral home. Wow. That's not a slam on his politics, btw, just sayin'... Wow. Maybe that fly knows something we don't?

Democratic hopeful Joe Biden commented about the fly as well, jokingly asking people to support the insect’s campaign. While some saw the humor in Biden’s tweet, others criticized the politician for striking a low blow. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has not commented about the fly as of yet.

The fly wasn’t the only thing to get into the ointment on October 7. People also commented about Pence’s left eye which looked pinky-red and caused gossiping about the Vice-President’s health.

Exactly even the fly has its limits. I think Pence was a little to crappy for him.

Other than that, the debate was far calmer and smoother than the previous Trump Vs. Biden debacle that left a lot of Americans feeling annoyed.

Meanwhile, CNN reports that President Trump (who was diagnosed with Covid-19 last week) has announced he will not “waste his time” with the second presidential debate which the Commission on Presidential Debates has announced will be held virtually. The town meeting-style debate was scheduled for October 16 and we’ll see how things progress until then.
