[WATCH] Twitter mesmerised by a bug crawling through Trump's hair
During an address at the 400th anniversary of the Joint Commemorative Session of the Virginia National Assembly in Jamestown, US President Donald Trump remained unphased by a bug that crawled through his hair...
Aside from criticisms and questions about this truly being the anniversary of democracy in America, many watching were distracted from what he was saying by the determined insect.
Some people, however, thought this was hardly news, but many on Twitter thought it was hilarious.

Saw Pres Trump's address at Jamestown VA. Amazing how focused our president can be while speaking---even with a huge insect crawling on his forehead and in his hair---I'll bet the Russians planted the "bug"!!— Hoss Boyd (@HossBoyd1) July 30, 2019
