During the end of her interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris was asked about the fly that landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s head during their debate, leading to an extended laughing fit.
“I just realized I would kick myself if I didn’t just ask you,” Rachel Maddow began.
“Before I let you go, if you noticed the fly on Vice President Mike Pence’s head?”
“Oh, Rachel,” Kamala Harris said while smiling broadly and trying to contain her laughter while nodding.
After the two of them laughed together, Harris concluded “You know, Rachel, I think that it’s important that we find a way to move on and fly away from this subject onto something else.”
Earlier this week, VP Pence said that he was completely ignorant of the fly’s presence on his head. “I didn’t know he was there,” he said on Fox News’ The Daily Briefing Monday.
Pence, chuckling, added that he learned about the moment from his children upon leaving the debate stage.
