'I had to be honest in my views': 'Plaid shirt guy' at Trump's rally in Montana
Business Insider ^ | 09.07.18 | David Choi

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.

The Trump advance team must be made up of idiots. IMHO, And you don't put a minor on national television without parental permission.

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.

If PDJT was actually a Nazi, this guy — and whoever helped him get his seat — would disappear into Nacht und Nebel and never be heard from again.

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.

Trump's people need to do a little better job vetting the folks who are going to be standing behind him in camera range. Don't let a trio of high school jackasses show up and try to make a mockery of things, especially these days. For their well-being as well as the President's.

That being said, this is pretty funny (LANGUAGE WARNING):

Sad Plaid, Daria, and Big Red get ejected SUPER CUT

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.

"tried getting Trump to sign a copy of the "Communist Manifesto," which was disguised as Trump's book, "The Art of the Deal."

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?

Yes, they need better screeners.

Don't pick people who are over the top. They're likely plants.

Find the low profile people who act respectfully in the crowd.

I agree but I was so happy to see perky blonde take Big Red’s place. After her initial camera fright, she totally blossomed!!

“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.
