Julia Louis-Dreyfus mocks Mike Pence’s fly moment during vice presidential debate

Former “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus joined myriad people on social media commenting on the now-infamous fly incident at the 2020 vice presidential debate.While Sen. Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence debated the issues facing America on Wednesday ahead of the Nov. 3 election, viewers were quick to notice when a pesky fly landed atop Pence’s silver hair, staying there for a good amount of time and distracting most of the audience from what the nominees were saying.Louis-Dreyfus took to Twitter amid the slew of jokes, parody accounts and mentions to note that the distracting moment could have made good material for the Emmy-winning HBO series, which ended in 2019 after seven seasons.“Well, I wish we had thought of this on @VeepHBO – who’s controlling the fly?” the star joked Wednesday.JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS CALLS TRUMP A ‘PRETEND PRESIDENT’: ‘I AM NOT A FAN’Hours later, she took to Twitter again for a follow-up tweet walking back the thought, noting that the gaffe was actually “too obvious.”Louis-Dreyfus starred on the comedy as Vice President Selina Meyer, an ambitious politician whose morality was only dictated by what could further her career to the oval office.
