Donald Trump was reportedly laughed at by delegates while addressing the United Nations General Assembly:
In one of the more remarkable moments in the history of the annual UN summit, the chamber broke out in spontaneous laughter at Trump’s claim that “in less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country”.
Clearly taken aback, Trump said: “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK.”

I am not entirely familiar with UN protocol, but from what I gather this was rather uncommon and perhaps even a first. Is it? Has something similar ever happen before?
