    US President Donald Trump was on the campaign trail in New Mexico on 16 September, speaking to his supporters when towards the end of his speech he seemed to get very distracted by what appeared to be a fly hovering around him.

    US President Donald Trump recently displayed a bizarre reaction to a pesky fly during a rally speech.

    Donald Trump was in New Mexico on Monday evening, giving a speech at a campaign rally, when towards the end a fly circling around him caught his attention.

    After ineffectually swatting at the persistent insect a few times, Trump’s words suddenly turned robot-like, as the president segued into a bizarre, disjointed sequence that left many scratching their heads to decipher:

    “That's a nasty fly. I don't like those suckers. I don't know about you New Mexico but I don't like flies or mosquitos. I don't like snakes too much either and we have plenty of those in New York and Washington, a different variety. I don't like any kind of snake. I think I like the kind of ground better than the ones we have in Washington.”

    ​While the scene inspired some to tweet their resentment at Trump or t turnedhe incident around to criticise his opponents, others just found the whole thing hilarious.

    ​The Twitter audience were true to themselves, dishing up a meme fest inspired by the incident:
