Many viewers were quick to tweet, and some joked that the fly should be given time to respond to the questions.
Along with the fly swatters, which are available for $ 10 on the Joe Biden campaign website store, there are mugs and t-shirts to remind you of the many minutes a fly spends during the debate on sites like Etsy on Pences Head sat, such as “The fly doesn’t lie.”
Some of Harris’ comebacks to pence, including “I Speak” and “Sorry Mr. Vice President, I Speak,” are also being marketed by Etsy sellers on shirts, face masks, and other products.

Biden’s Twitter account tweeted a photo of the former vice president with a fly swatter pointing to the fly.
“Throw in $ 5 to get this campaign off the ground,” the tweet said. A few minutes later, Biden also tweeted the “flywillvote.com” website, which redirects to iwillvote.com, a website where people can verify that they are registered to vote, as well as information on how to email or receive them vote personally.
Before the debate ended, several Twitter accounts were created for the fly.
Many also posted quick tweets, with some joking that the fly should be given time to respond to the questions and others saying the fly needs to be quarantined or tested for COVID-19. There is also a campaign to win “The Fly” actor Jeff Goldblum for “Saturday Night Live”.
Merriam Webster tweeted that the word “fly” was “trending” on its website for “possibly first time”.
The fly swatter was up for sale quickly.
“Everyone on @TeamJoe deserved a raise after the epic trolling fundraiser # VPDebates2020 #flywillvote #flygate took place tonight,” tweeted Twitter user @taradublinrocks.
Actress Kerry Washington tweeted that she bought a fly swatter early Thursday morning.
