I suppose we have to look at the room that he was in when he decided to butt-slap his attorney.
It was a courtroom.
The judge is in charge there, and most judges want to keep an air of decorum in their courtroom. They tend to be serious, and when you do something
that makes the people present in the room laugh, they take it that you are not serious, and are making a mockery of the proceedings. The butt-slap is
something that you do on the football field. The courtroom is different than a football field.
