I did watch, the whole thing! I got to watch her cheerleader. A woman was to the Gov's right and directing applause and how long to applaud. It reminded me of the North Korean "Dear Leader" applause and tears.
If you remember, when "Dear Leader" died, people attending had to really, really, really cry or be subject to "discipline". Gretchen was watching closely as to who did and didn't hold the applause.
