"#PlaidShirtGuy" removed from Trump rally for facial expressions

Republican control of the House of Representatives and Senate is at stake in the November 6 elections, which are seen as a referendum on Trump. Jon Tester unveiled a new television ad Wednesday promoting his collaboration with President Donald Trump on veterans' issues as the Montana Democrat sought to inoculate himself against conservative critics ahead of a Trump visit to the state.

Trump won Montana by 20 percentage points in the 2016 election, buoying Republican hopes of toppling Tester.

Trump also lashed out at Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for their aggressive questioning this week of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump or those working for or with him apparently had enough of Linfesty's unenthusiastic expressions, as an unnamed woman walked up and told the young man he was being replaced, as were his friends.

"When I heard the policies, I disagreed with a lot of them", Linfesty said. Seeking to portray the Montana farmer as a tool of liberal Democrats, Trump said, "Jon Tester talks like he's from Montana, but he votes like he's Nancy Pelosi" - a reference to the House minority leader, who is a frequent Trump target.

Voting for party control of Congress, Trump said, is "a very important thing".

But he said the time had long past for the investigation to have ended. But if it does happen, it's your fault because you did not go out and vote.


Trump's rallies often veer far from the topic of the Senate race he's there to weigh in on. A few Democratic lawmakers have called for Trump to be removed from office. Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas", claimed California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters' I.Q.is in the "mid-60s" and ridiculed Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, who died almost two weeks ago, for opposing his Obamacare repeal effort.

Linfesty said the facial expressions that caused him to go viral were just his natural reactions to what the president was saying.

Linfesty seemed puzzled when Trump made the claim that the country was thriving. The state's voters are avowedly independent and more likely than those in any other state to split a ticket and vote for both Democrats and Republicans in the same presidential election, according to Montana State University political analyst David Parker.

"One of the most important jobs of any U.S. senator is to fully vet and consider nominees to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court - the highest court in our land", Heitkamp said in a statement.

"I don't even like to bring it up, the impeach word", Trump said. "It's why he's paying a second visit to my state", he wrote.
