A pair of pro-Trump protestors were shouted down in a Tucson, Arizona city council meeting on Tuesday, and the scene was just too much for one man in attendance to handle.
A clip from KVOA reporter Nick VinZant depicts two of President Donald Trump’s supporters voicing their displeasure with news that a measure to make Tucson a so-called “Sanctuary City” will be on the ballot in an upcoming election.
A woman in a “Make America Great Again” hat can be seen yelling about how only Congress has the power to change immigration laws, before others in the room loudly boo her and tell her to “shut up.”
The internet soon found its hero in a mustachioed man in a green polo shirt, seemingly unable to control his laughter at the hectic scene.

The pro-Trump pair can be seen holding up signs before the camera pans out to a red-faced, chuckling man slapping his knee at the sight of the outburst.
“You’re in direct violation of the oath you took to the United States Constitution,” the woman shouts, as a man can be heard telling her she’s “in direct violation of being an idiot.”
As the pro-Trump duo are instructed to leave by a police officer, the green shirt man is left clutching his chest in a fit of laughter.
“I love you #GreenShirt Guy,” comedian Patton Oswalt wrote on Twitter.

Some even joked about drafting green shirt guy for the 2020 election:
