Perhaps the biggest moment of Sunday night’s Presidential Debate was the fly that landed on Hillary Clinton’s face. The moment received wide coverage on social media, and the fly even has its own Twitter account now.
Most of the reaction came at Hillary’s expense, with many wondering why she seemed to have no problem with it there. Others saw it as a metaphor for what flies are attracted to. CBS News, however, in an effort to spin the incident into a positive for Clinton, came up with a ridiculous notion: a fly on the face is a good omen. Seriously. That’s their position.
In Native American culture, every animal is believed to have a totem. So, when an animal (or insect, in this case) appears at a time or in a place that it normally wouldn’t, that means it’s delivering a unique message to the person whose path it crossed.
According to starstuffs.com, “The lesson of fly is in the value of carrying your emotions, thoughts and feelings in order to act quickly in sometimes unfavorable or uncomfortable conditions.”
Why is that relevant to Hillary Clinton?
Well, just moments before the start of the debate, her opponent, Donald Trump, took to Facebook Live with three women who have accused her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of sexual assault. That would likely be a humiliating experience for any woman, but Hillary Clinton had to steady her emotions and take the debate stage with a composed demeanor immediately afterward.
So, was the fly’s appearance simply a coincidence? Or was it nature’s way of delivering a message to the Democratic nominee? We may never know, but one thing is for certain: That fly created one of the “buzzier” moments of second debate.
Seriously, CBS News? We’re just wondering what happened to that fly. You know what happens to anyone who crosses the Clintons.
