[WATCH] #PlaidShirtGuy removed after pulling faces at Trump rally
A high school student was replaced at a Trump rally after his expressions displeased Trump staffers at the Montana rally.
The young man identified as Tyler Linfesty says he did not want to miss an opportunity to listen to the president speak, though he himself is a social democrat. He says those in the audience behind Trump were told to be enthusiastic and clap. But, he says, his expressions were just his honest reaction to the speech - and he was not trying to protest.
After a while, a woman came up to him and told him she was replacing him. He says he left without making a fuss.
