    in ancient times both flies and conjuntivitis (red eyes) are both symbols of the devil. It's very telling how that happened as Pence was answering about systemic racism in America.

    I think that fly is digital and it was placed there digitally as a distraction. Nobody is talking about what he was sayin. Not good America!! This is how easily ppl can be distracted during such a serious debate. SAD!!!
