Skip to comments.Video: Counting of Electoral College Votes The House and Senate convened for a joint session
Posted on 01/06/2017 6:12:30 PM PST by Republican Wildcat
It's the sequel 16 years in the making and even better than the original...after their last failed stint in 2001 to overturn an election with multiple bogus objections to the Electoral College Votes, the Congressional Golden Girls return in dramatic fashion with a strong supporting cast of fellow Congressmen and random protesters. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-CA) anchor the starring cast, with a stunning last second cameo performance from Maxine Waters (D-CA), one of the stars from the 2001 original.
Other notable appearances: Vice President Joe Biden forced to repeatedly rule on the nonsensical objections that were completely out of order with the House Speaker sitting stone faced trying desperately to avoid laughing at the nonsensical and repeated objections (which continued long after the tally had went well beyond 270 votes) and finally could no longer contain it and burst out laughing at them in the end, and a protestor screaming the preamble of the Constitution as he is dragged out of the chamber.

Sixteen years? They did this crap in 2004 too (noticing a pattern with congressional Democrats?), and that time, they actually got a U.S. Senator to sign on.
Was pretty dang’d funny. Joe ran it right.
Maxine and Sheila are idiots.

“Los Tres Mujeres Negras” It would be perfect if only Maxine had changed her last name to Lee.
NEW DAY DAWNING IN AMERICA
Who B dat?
Did the “Guam is gonna tip over” guy get into the mix too?
California Democrats must share some contagious brain eating disease. Stupid runs deep there.
Who’s the crazy Texas CongressCritter wench?
Winning IS everything and it never gets old.
Muss’ I die?!? Muss’ I die????
“Whos the crazy Texas CongressCritter wench?”
Looks like there’s a typo. Barbara Lee is the (RAT-$hit, Berkeley, CA), While Sheila Jackson Lee is the (RAT-$hit, TX). But sadly, the third moron Maxine Waters is from SoCal, so California has to “own” two of the three! Plus she looks like she’s been beaten with an ugly stick for fifty years or more!
For some reason I don’t remember that at all... So this is actually the Third Act for that group.
I’ll have to find an archive video of it sometime from 2004.
I was very surprised they did not have a Senator sign on - like Elizabeth Warren.
Shoot - another typo. yes, Sheila Jackson Lee is from Texas, not California.
Thanks. I was thinking that there might be even more than I was, unfortunately, familiar about.
The “Tellers” had an interesting historical role in this.
Representative Gregg Harper (R-Mississippi)
Representative Robert Brady (D-Pennsylvania)
Senator Roy Blunt (R-Missouri)
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota)
I wonder how they were chosen???
Someone should tell Brady that it is the “Electoral College”, not the “Electorial College”.
And tell him that Hillary’s running mate was Tim, not Tom. /facepalm
Maxine and Sheila are idiots.
Classic Stockholm Syndrome. A slave to the fake news Democratic imagery today and lusting for it to be there tomorrow.
I want to thank you for posting that. I enjoyed every minute. Even the buffoons entertained me as their communist agenda sunk into oblivion. It is my fervent desire that PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP KICK THEIR ASSES for 8 more years until they cry out for mercy to which the reply will be, “HELL NO”!!
I don’t know if this is always the case but it appears they are the chairmen and ranking members of the Administration Committees in their respective Houses.
The way I can remember which is which, if they aren’t pictured is:
Sheila Jackson Lee (TX)
Barbara “Commie” Lee (CA)
They are both total dingbats.
Very interesting to watch this. The objections are nonsense. LOL!
For once, Biden acted like an adult and did his country a service today.
All the usual horses asse’s were the main protesters.
They were obviously put up to it by the heads of the dem party. In other words, their white masters in the party using them to do the dirty work as if they were the dem party’s house negros.
Hilarious. Thanks for posting.
And they and the other objecting hypocrites all lined up for photo ops with Biden after the formalities.
Objections were attempted to be raised at:
Alabama - (the Russians?)
Florida - (electors ineligible?)
Georgia - (long voting lines?)
Michigan - (voting machines?)
Mississippi - (voter suppression?)
North Carolina - 2 (voting rights?) plus (voter suppression?)
South Carolina - (unintelligible...)
West Virginia - (cut off before speaking...)
Wisconsin - (cut off before speaking...)
Wyoming - (won’t some senator please sign this?)
I guess I am a bit surprised that not one slime-ball representative
could find another slime-ball senator to sign-off on their objection.
"I said, that's IT!"
Dat be Babs Boxer.
IIRC, it was Barbara “the dwarf” Boxer, objecting to the results on theory that GWB’s victory in Ohio - by about 100,000 votes - was the result of voter fraud. Boxer was crying, carrying on like the lunatic she is. High-larious.
Thank you too. I missed all of that at the time.
I’m surprised that Linda would’t sign on to that.
Hire a Democrat they are fun to watch and toy with!
There was no attempted challenge to the certification of the electoral votes from Ohio.
I didn’t know that. So with a senator signature what happened?
way to go Joe. he was born for that kinda work.
ugly stick for fifty years or more!>>> my ugly stick is used for fishing.. but i can rent it out.
I found the video archive on C-SPAN. The Joint Session was suspended and the Senators returned to the Senate chamber. Separate votes were held in the House and the Senate on the objection filed (both of which of course rejected the challenge to Ohio’s Electors). The Senators returned to the House chamber and a clerk announced the results of each vote from the Senate and the House rejecting the objection to their votes and the Ohio Electoral Votes were certified and they moved on.
They were talking about 2004: https://www.c-span.org/video/?185006-2/senate-session
If you would have called them stupid, you would have insulted Forest Gump.
Sheila Jack-@$$ Lee (TX)
God bless Joe Biden. I never thought I would say that, but he really did the right thing!
I see Massachusetts was proudly represented in the moonbattery. Starting it all off, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Havana). It looks like he got some sun at Fidel’s funeral.
