(Video) Was Ivanka Trump actually booed in Berlin?

It has been widely reported that first daughter Ivanka Trump was booed yesterday while speaking in Berlin yesterday about her father’s feminist credentials. However, the jeers are barely audible on any recording of the conference, as you can tell from watching the video above. It’s possible that this was a case of media exaggeration, but the boos are referred to in the video, so they definitely had to have occurred. Perhaps the most likely explanation for their relative hush is that microphones at the summit were meant to record what Ivanka and other attendees like Angela Merkel had to say, not capture crowd noise. Normally we’d be distracted by audience chatter, so this video might be a case of sound design so good it ends up being a problem.
