When Trump said, “We’ve picked up a lot of support,” the highschooler mouthed “Have you?”; and when the President attempted to compare the popular vote and the Electoral College to running the 100-meter dash and the marathon, the teen mocked, “What?!”  He didn’t stop making faces throughout the rally – until he was removed.

The teen found out on Thursday morning that he had been selected to attend the rally and meet the president. This was when he contacted the president’s campaign and asked to reserve seats for his friends. Linfesty claimed that his friends and him did not have an agenda and had an open mind before attending.

“I didn’t really have a plan – I was just going to clap for things I agreed with and not clap for things I didn’t agree with,” he said.

Adding: “All of those reactions were my actual reactions. I would of made those faces if anyone were to say that to me. I was not trying to protest, those were just my actual, honest reactions.”

Once him and his two friends were replaced on stage, he said he was escorted by secret service into a back room where they looked at his ID and after 10 minutes told him he could leave. He said Secret Service and police treated him well.Follow us on Social Media
