Skip to comments.'I had to be honest in my views': 'Plaid shirt guy' at Trump's rally in Montana
Posted on 09/07/2018 8:28:58 PM PDT by Coleus
A teenager wearing a plaid shirt who made several animated facial expressions during a Montana campaign rally featuring President Donald Trump has been identified as Tyler Linfesty, a 17-year-old high school senior, the Billings Gazette reported.
As Trump delivered remarks on Thursday night, Linfesty was positioned directly behind him and made several facial expressions before a staffer apparently asked him to leave. The high school senior's reactions went viral the next morning and prompted amateur facial readers to analyze what he was saying.
"I didn't really have a plan," Linfesty told the Gazette. "I was just going to clap for things I agreed with and not clap for things I didn't agree with."
The teen was seen clapping at several points throughout Trump's speech including when Trump remarked on Sen. Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign and the North American Free Trade Agreement but his facial reactions caught the most attention.

FReepers on the live thread nailed this guy.
No, I think you’re way off.
The takeaway is you have to remember how many people are out there who want to make Trump and his team look bad or claim they’re made up of idiots.
WTF? Trump has idiots for people arranging the groups behind him on stages.
Yes we saw that moron and after his making faces he was replaced by three women.
Get him to a USMC recruiter, and let a drill sgt. squeeze the estrogen out of him. I’m sorry but he just has that look about him.
When his family and friends made inquiries to law enforcement as to his fate, they would be told that no records concerning this person existed. If they persisted, or went to the media, they would disappear also.
But he is still with us, and will become a media figure now. Depending on how articulate he is, and whether he is an effective anti-Trumper, he may even get a bit of a career out of his antics.
Right. He mouthed “F** you” to President Trump.
What a snowflake......he was a security risk and should never have been allowed to be that close to the President.
He doesn’t seem quite as stupid or venal as David Hogg, so that’s a minor plus.
What a Jerk.
That being said, this is pretty funny (LANGUAGE WARNING):
Feel bad for "Daria" who was actually a dude.
He must have some connections with White House staff to get that close to the president.
That is kinda funny.
This is not funny. Not a good situation. Who is in charge of selecting people to sit behind the President of the United States???
How about the person in charge (if still employed) be given the names of long-time Freepers who are loyal to the President, and those people be able to sit behind the President at all of these rallies.
Really now, this is not rocket science. Again, who is in charge?? Put Freepers in this section at all of the rallies. This is not difficult. Is there a name of the person in charge we can email? Has this person been fired already?
Don't pick people who are over the top. They're likely plants.
Find the low profile people who act respectfully in the crowd.
It is such a shame that people stand in line for HOURS to attend a Trump rally, people who REALLY WANT to be there and this ASSHAT is able to slip in and take the seat SO CLOSE to POTUS anyone would have been ELATED to have!!! What a shame!!!
Thank you so much for posting this. I totally missed it when they were booted out!
I agree but I was so happy to see perky blonde take Big Red’s place. After her initial camera fright, she totally blossomed!!
You only need a glance to recognize a douche. I guarantee you, this tool gets tossed around every day in school. By the little kids. LMAO!
“Who is in charge of selecting people to sit behind the President of the United States???”
Maybe it’s “anonymous” or one of his comrades.
