Why were the press conference mics set at waist level?

I came into watching it near the end and knew something was off. The reporters in masks was one thing.

Watching the replays last night I realized that all the reporters had to bend over to ask their questions. Due to her proximity to a mic, the CBS reporter was seated.

It could just be a staging trick but this IS the Trump Clustertrump. Trump, for some reason, seems to think these appearances are a good idea and part of that seems to be that he thinks hes dominating the press.

1. Reporters had masks. It would be easier for mikes to pick up voice

if the speaker slightly lifted the mask and talked downward. That was observed with at least one of the reporters.

2. Mics

So the reporters have to bow down, literally, to the Great Leader.

5. Lower the mikes to reduce contamination going and coming. A good system will still pick

up the audio and provide a clear field of fire for anyone wishing to throw a shoe at tRUMP!

11. You Shouldn't Really Need One

Signs are fairly easy (just fill in the sign background color over the existing text and then insert new text).

10. That was my take

Im no AV guy but those looked like Boom mics. Used for general area coverage. They were taking turns stepping up to the mics anyway.
