President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden held competing city corridor occasions Thursday night time, however the star of the present might have been … neither candidate. ABC anchor George Stephanopoulous moderated a city corridor occasion with Biden in Philadelphia, whereas NBC’s Savannah Guthrie moderated one with the president in Miami. However social media centered on a girl within the Trump occasion’s viewers who incessantly and emphatically nodded her head because the president spoke.

Kamala Harris and “Left Shark” from the 2015 Tremendous Bowl halftime present. “Nodding Woman is the Left Shark of 2020,” one Twitter person wrote. 

Journalist Katie Couric and comic Sarah Cooper have been amongst those that commented on the Nodding Woman. “I am channel browsing,” Couric tweeted. “The girl to @realDonaldTrump ‘s proper retains nodding her head, which I discover very distracting.”

The fly that sat on the vice chairman’s head ended up starring in a Saturday Night Live skit just a few days later. Will Nodding Woman make it into an SNL sketch? “Nodding Woman will likely be on SNL this week … and doubtless a Halloween costume subsequent week,” wrote one Twitter person.

Though the dueling city halls changed a second presidential debate, keep tuned. Trump and Biden are anticipated to debate another time, on Oct. 22.
