Billings teen dubbed ‘Plaid Shirt Guy’ goes viral during Trump rally

BILLINGS- One day after President Trump’s speech came an unlikely star. A Billings teenager is now being referred to all over the internet as “Plaid Shirt Guy.’

His facial expressions and reactions to the president’s speech are going viral and even celebrities tweeted about him.

Tyler Linfesty, is a student at Billings West and was chosen to sit in the VIP section of the rally behind Trump.

During the course of the speech, Linfesty was caught on camera responding to Trump’s words.

Images caught the teen appearing surprised or amused during the speech and even at one point he mouths “have you?” after the president said he’s picking up support for his team.

Linfesty’s time in the spotlight though was short-lived. He was eventually asked to leave the rally and replaced with a woman who appeared to be with the Trump campaign to stand in his place.
