The 2020 vice presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris was much more composed than last week’s presidential debate but it was no less memeable.
Even before the debate was over, memes — born out of subtle moments — started dominating parts of social media platforms such as TikTok and Twitter.
Harris’ smirk became an instant reaction meme, jokes were lobbed about “RuPaul’s Drag Race” host and drag queen RuPaul’s fracking, and, perhaps the most viral, was the fly that landed atop Pence’s head.
Here are our top memes of the night.
During the debate, Pence said the Democratic ticket would ban fracking, which Harris denied.
But the back-and-forth about fracking reminded Twitter of RuPaul’s interview earlier this year with NPR, during which he talked about owning land in Wyoming and appeared to reference allowing oil companies to frack on that land, according to the Guardian.
