"But whenever I agreed with him, you know, I clapped", Linfesty said. Instead, a bunch of people insist he's "telling it like it is" (very hard when you're a compulsive liar) and have decided he should be their leader, but that was not the case with the crowd directly behind him at his rally in Billings, Montana last night. "When I disagreed, it was pretty apparent", he told the news channel.

Positioned just beyond Trump's shoulder - and thus nearly constantly visible throughout the televised event - was Tyler Linfesty, a 17-year-old senior from Billings West High School.

It was just the president's latest attempt to use the possibility of his own impeachment to energize his base - and it came as his administration appears to be in an increasing state of chaos.

Before that, however, Linfesty got his picture taken with Trump (though he hasn't yet received a print) and he had hoped to get the President to sign a book. But, he says, his expressions were just his honest reaction to the speech - and he was not trying to protest.

Donning his Democratic socialist pin, Linfesty then left without incident, as Secret Service agents flanked him on each side.

According to reports, the officer who shot Jean was returning home, in full uniform, when she encountered the man in an apartment. The unnamed Dallas officer entered the apartment after her shift on Thursday night and confronted the victim, a 26-year-old male.

"I'll be the only President in history they'll say: 'What a job he's done! Ronny Jackson is a great man. Ronny Jackson has led a great and handsome life" and had "lies told about him", Trump said.

The weird incident happened as the United States president addressed a campaign rally crowd in Montana.

Asked if anyone has been negative towards him, Linfesty said, "I mean it is the internet, so you are always going to find some negative stuff. His two friends also attended Boys State with me earlier in the summer!"

"I didn't really have a plan", Linfesty told the Billings Gazette. In fact, he said he clapped when Trump "railed against" the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and when the president said the 2016 Democratic primary was stolen from Bernie Sanders. "I wasn't happy about what he was saying".

"I beat all of these senators, all of these governors, all of these brilliant political minds", said Trump, alluding to the field of 16 other Republicans who ran for president. After about 10 minutes, they told him to leave. "I would of made those faces if anyone were to say that to me". "The last 24 hours have been insane, people at school recognize me as the 'plaid shirt guy'".
