This plaid shirt guy in Donald Trump rally is trending. Read why?
New Delhi : The United States of America President Donald Trump visited Montana to meet and greet people and deliver a speech on how successfully he had been working in last couple of years.
Everything was going great for him except the expressions of one man, placed in the television frame right behind him during the speech. Tagged as plaid shirt guy, he is now trending all across the internet for his facial expressions which were caught by people of America during the telecast.
17-year-old Tyler had gone there to attend the ceremony and get a chance to see his president in reality.
"We have the best economy in history!" Trump declared at one point in his speech, repeating a claim that has been fact-checked as false.
Tyler made a quizzical expression, then turned to look at his friend.
"The stock market is at record highs," Trump said. "Unemployment is at record lows."
Tyler raised his eyebrows and chewed his lip.
"And more Americans are working today than ever, ever, ever before!" Trump stated.
Tyler glanced upward and appeared to mouth: "Is that true?"
His facial expression were soon noticed by his friends watching the television and also by several people in the United States.
Tyler said it was never his intent to troll Trump. Though he is not a Trump fan, per se, he had planned to attend the rally when he heard Trump would be visiting Montana because he didn't want to miss an opportunity to see the president.
The day of the rally, Tyler was notified that he had been chosen at random for "VIP status," meaning he would get to meet Trump for a photo-op, he told The Washington Post.
"Before I got the picture and the handshake with Donald Trump, I asked him if me and my friends could sit behind him," he said. "I had no idea I was going to be on Trump's shoulder. I didn't know it was going to be so zoomed in right on me and my friends. I didn't know it was going to be like that all."
