Do you ever have a day where literally everything that could’ve gone wrong goes wrong, or do you ever get so over-tired or angry or dumbfounded that all you can do is laugh, because if you don’t laugh you’ll cry? You know that type of unhinged, full body, crazy person laugh? I think we’ve all been there. And I think we’ve all been collectively building up to that point throughout Trump’s presidency — if you’re not there already, that is.
Some of us definitely are, like Alex Kack. Although he’s better known now as Green Shirt Guy.
During a City Council meeting in Tucson, Arizona, two Trump supporters sporting MAGA hats and a vacant stare that says “the lights are on but nobody’s home” protested the idea of Tucson becoming a “Sanctuary City”, aka a city that is friendly to immigrants, aka how every single city should be. These two model citizens vomited up a stream of classic pro-Trump racist rhetoric and were quickly met with a chorus of boos, but their ignorant spectacle isn’t what everyone focused on. The attention quickly shifted away from them, to a man sitting almost out of frame.
A man in a green shirt.
Who laughed his ass off the whole time.
Which heavily resonated with pretty much everyone who watched the video, and it’s hard to not laugh along with him, because yeah dude — we totally feel you.
While it’s clear that Green Shirt Guy had the best, most relatable, and honestly uplifting reaction to these MAGA jackasses, it’s tough to say who’s the icon here. Him… or background banjo guy.
He’s a city council regular. He was there speaking out against nuclear weapons. I tweeted out the song he played. I believe it was adapted from a poem. He’s a very nice man

Let’s call it a draw, because we could all use more laughter and banjo.
