Lincoln Project founder: Fly landing on Pence was 'mark of the devil'

"That's a sign all through history of sin, and historically, biblically... He who commands the fly has historically been seen the mark of the devil," explained Schmidt before a cackling MSNBC anchor.

Viewers of Wednesday night's vice presidential debate found amusement when a fly landed on Vice President Mike Pence's head, where it remained for several minutes before buzzing off.

While most of the internet had a field day with the incident, dubbing it #flygate and producing thousands of related memes, Steve Schmidt of the Lincoln Project, a neo-conservative anti-Trump super PAC, suggested on MSNBC that the fly was a symbol of Satanic significance.

"That's a sign all through history of sin, and historically, biblically... He who commands the fly has historically been seen the mark of the devil," explained Schmidt before a cackling MSNBC anchor.

The anchor inquired as to whether Schmidt was joking, stating that the "fly could have landed on anyone." Schmidt said yes.

"But it didn't, it landed on Mike Pence," said Schmidt. "It said something." The MSNBC anchor insisted that confirming such a sinister phenomenon was "above his pay grade." Schmidt

Some viewers compared the incident to experiences of former President Barack Obama, who had a fly land on him in an interview with CNBC and again later during a speech regarding Obamacare.

Obama also faced similar accusations of Satanic influence by talk show host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who insisted that flies landing on him was proof of demonic possession. Schmidt once described Jones as a "total whacko."
