Twitter seems to have fallen in love with a man in a plaid shirt who sat behind Donald Trump at Thursday’s rally in Billings, Montana. It was clear from the man’s facial expressions that he was not a big fan of what the president had to say, and eventually, he was asked to move.

Check out his confused reaction when Trump says winning the Electoral College is harder than winning the popular vote.

After Trump says “We’ve picked up a lot of support,” he seems to be mouthing “Have you?” or possibly even “Fuck you.” It’s hard to say for sure.

But plaid shirt guy wasn’t the only one getting removed from the shot. A man and woman standing next to him were asked to leave shortly afterward and were replaced by two blonde women.

Here’s the woman reacting to Trump calling out the “Fake News”, before being asked to leave.

Trump’s staff seems to know how to deal with protesters at this point. On August 30, a volunteer staffer faced criticism for a widely circulated photo showing him blocking a reporters camera during a rally in Evansville, Indiana.

Also, as long as we’re analyzing the audience, can we take a second to talk about “Whipping her nose with the flag” girl? It’s almost certainly a little hot and stuffy at these things, but if you’re going to sit where cameras can see you, it’s probably a good idea to keep in mind that the world is watching.

According to one source, this was Donald Trump’s 520th rally, and with midterm elections coming up, he probably won’t be slowing down anytime soon. The President may be hitting the same talking points over and over again, but it seems like we can at least count on the audience to keep us entertained.
