As President Trump addressed a joint session of Congress last night, Americans heard him talk about immigration reform, repealing Obamacare and tax reform.
Americans also heard an extremely loud clap close to a microphone on at least three TV stations, which include ABC, NBC and CNN.
there is one overwhelming loud and off beat clap dominating the CNN live stream

@cilcriddle the loud clap was whenever Trump claps for someone else. His mic is hot I guess haha

The loud applause mostly occurred after Trump introduced his guests, Jamiel Shaw Sr., Jessica Davis and Susan Oliver, three Californians whose relatives were killed by immigrants; and Corrine Owens, widow of Navy Seal William Ryan Owens.
Didn't hear the clap or watch the speech? Listen around the 57 minute mark. The loud applause continues on and off until the hour-and-four-minute mark in the clip below:
That's a loud clap. #JointAddress
