ST. LOUIS -- Despite all the controversy surrounding the "Trump tape" and "Clinton emails," a simple fly seemed to take center stage in the second presidential debate.
The apparent fly could be seen around Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump during the broadcast of the debate and Twitter users quickly picked up on it.
"What's up with this fly?" said one Twitter user.
"I'm rooting for the FLY" and "Can I vote for that fly," wrote others.
