The MSNBC correspondent hosted Kamala on her show on Wednesday night (October 14) and asked her about it.
If you didn’t see, a fly had landed on Mr. Pence‘s head during the debate and it quickly spawned into memes and even an SNL skit. Presidential hopeful Joe Biden even got in on the jokes about the fly by doing this.
“I would kick myself if I didn’t just ask you, if you noticed the fly on Vice President Pence’s head, at the time during the debate?” Rachel asked. “We could see it at home, but could you see it, sitting next to him?” And if so, Maddow followed up: “Did you have the instinct to [shoo it away for him]?”
Kamala didn’t utter a word, but did shake her head up and down, before laughing with Rachel, who had burst into laughter about it.
“I think it’s important to find a way to move on… and fly away from this subject onto something else,” Kamala later stated, making a punny joke about it.
