The man who earned the nickname “plaid shirt guy” for making exaggerated facial expressions during President Trump’s Billings, Montana rally on Thursday night was wearing a “Democratic Socialists of America” pin.

In a Friday night interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, high school senior Tyler Linfesty described his motivations for attending the rally, his reasoning behind the facial expressions he gave, and his experience being briefly interviewed by Secret Service.

The article goes on to state the following:

Lemon noted at the beginning of the interview that Linfesty isn’t a Republican and was wearing “a Democratic Socialists of America pin,” then asked him why he attended the rally.

“I originally signed up to go to the rally about a week before the rally was going to happen,” Linfesty told Lemon. “Honestly, I just wanted to go just to see the president and hear what he had to say. I wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to see the president of the United States.”

“Were you deliberately making faces or was that a natural reaction?” Lemon asked.

“All of those reactions were my actual reaction,” said Linfesty. “I would have made those faces if anyone were to say that to me. I was not trying to protest. Those were just my actual, honest reactions.”

  1. Personally, I think he was a plant. No matter what he claims, he was probably a plant by the Dems to distract from the President’s rally. He’s not very intelligent, that’s for sure.
