House fly crashes presidential debate
A fly got a very up-close view of Sunday’s explosive presidential debate, landing on Hillary Clinton’s eyebrow as she was speaking during her second showdown with Donald Trump.
The Democratic nominee didn’t appear to flinch as the insect took a split-second rest on her face at Washington University in St. Louis.
But social media was abuzz immediately following the fly-centered snafu:

It didn’t take long before the fly then took flight on Twitter, with its own account:

The fly was seen briefly hovering around Trump, but didn’t appear to come face-to-face with the GOP nominee.
