A fly brought President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Rio Rancho, N.M., to a crashing halt on Monday night as the president attempted to swat the fly away.
“That’s a nasty fly,” Trump said as he attempted to swat at the fly.
“I don’t like those suckers,” he yelled. “I don’t know about you in New Mexico but I’m not into flies or mosquitoes.”
“I don’t like snakes too much. We have plenty of them in New York and Washington, a different variety,” he joked. “I don’t like either kind of snake.”

In July, Trump’s White House speech was also derailed by a fly:
