Skip to comments.Congress officially declares Donald Trump president
Posted on 01/07/2017 2:57:58 AM PST by Candor7
Congress certified Donald Trump's presidential victory over the objections of a handful of House Democrats.
All 538 electors met in their respective state capitals in December to cast their votes. The vote count made it official. Vice-president Joe Biden presided over the count in his role as president of the Senate.
Trump finished with 304 electoral votes and Democrat Hillary Clinton got 227. There were seven protest votes for other candidates. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency.

It’s about time. Fun to watch Slo Joe do his slapdowns of other libtards.
We win. The MSM buries the final nail in the leftist coffin.
Comprehensive video link:
The left goes down kicking and screaming, not broadcast on the MSM TV networks.
Well worth the watch:
THE LEFT OFFICIALLY BITES THE DUST!
I just loved the part where Biden had to tell them to sit down and shut up. Classic.
Me too. Loved it... the left gets its own right from one of it’s lead whackos. Congressional procedure is so like that.The Founders knew what they were doing.
Yep - "Stop being stupid - believe me, I know it doesn't help"....
“I just loved the part where Biden had to tell them to sit down and shut up. Classic.”
Though his act of “maturity” is directed towards a possibly 2020 POTUS run. Democrats don’t mind old guys and many likely believe he would have beaten Trump.
We just had an ex-military guy go ballistic at an airport after he lost his marbles. Why give anyone the opportunity?
Maybe now the leftist idiots will believe “It’s Over” and that they lost. Trump is driving the bus.
re; “Congressional procedure is so like that.The Founders knew what they were doing.”
It is NOT ‘Congressional procedure’, it is U.S.C. Title Code.
Since the Electoral College is a Constitutional Article, the ‘procedures’ are called out in the U.S.C. title Code, as LAW.
Therefore, each of the “objections” raised, were in violation of Code, when NOT having been signed by BOTH a sitting Representative AND a sitting Senator, and were ILLEGAL by U.S. Law. They were criminal actions.
NO one could have beaten Trump, and no one will in 2020. And had Trump not entered and won the Republican primary, no one would have beaten Hillary either.
the objections were racially motivated by professional negresses
The entire American black population was disrespected by the professional blacks in the congress.
Loser demonstrators and DEMS shined the light on their anti-Constitutional mindset during the time-honored changing of the guard. How disgraceful!
They were not criminal actions but they were out of order.
Would someone, please, explain why the left keeps whining about Trump not being legitimate. I’m simply not getting it. What’s not legitimate?
Thank you for the code edification. I am all for arresting the a$$hats and putting them in the cooler.
Good Ole Sheila Jackson Lee, embarrassing Texas once again!!! LOL
Can some wise technician turn that moment into a meme?
Did you see the crying woman to Michelle’s right with the heavy purple eyeshadow? At Michele’s “final” speech. I was hoping for trails of purple down her cheeks but didn’t see it. So fun. Anyone want to bet on how many of the dems on the inauguration platform will be wearing purple?
“Whats not legitimate?”
The Electoral College. The Left wants a pure democracy, where 50%+1 get to rule over the 50%-1. They will ride this horse for the foreseeable future.
How can you say that when it was the “American black population” who put these trashy negreses in office? Indeed, the “American black population” continues to disrespect this country by their choices for leadership. When they start routinely electing adults like Dr. Ben Carson and Col. Alan West, they can be considered to be useful citizens, but not until they do.
Looks like "Pat" has lost quite a bit of weight since the '90s . . . though I figured "her/him" for a Bernie supporter.
“NO one could have beaten Trump, and no one will in 2020. And had Trump not entered and won the Republican primary, no one would have beaten Hillary either.”
It’s not a matter of what would have happened had another Democrat run. I’m speaking to what the leftists BELIEVE would have happened. They know Clinton was an awful candidate, and believe Biden would have been better. I think they are right, and Biden would have stood a better chance of winning.
Amid all the heckling and interruptions from the black bitch Jackson-lee, Biden did a class job. He told one heckler to shut up “it’s over”.
As we Packer Fans say (and hope to say tomorrow) “That’s the DAGGER!”
My, that has a nice ring to it.
Watching Lee & Waters was like a remake of Dumb & Dumber except the original characters seemed much smarter.
One nail in the coffin after another...M.A.G.A.!
Hope it hurt them just enough so that they’ll be screaming “police brutality” for the next 20 years, and wondering why everyone’s laughing.
I watched this earlier - Idiot Dem Representatives, objecting, but with no Senator’s signature. Usually, replied to the question regarding said signature with: Not YET.
One of them waved the written objection and asked if there wasn’t some brave Senator who would have the courage to sign it. I guess the Dems who might have considered signing may be up for election in a Red State.
Are you sure?
I thought the House members were entitled to raise the objections. When they raise the objection, it is an invitation to the sitting Senators to support the objection.
They did not.
The VP had to slap them down if not supported by a Senator.
Awww... Ain’t that purdy?
When an objection, according to U.S. title code, MUST be in writing, MUST be signed by BOTH a U.S. Representative AND a U.S. Senator, was forwarded to the floor by these jackal Demoncrats, WITHOUT meeting the legal statute, as orally recited by Joe Biden, more than once, yes, it was illegal, and the act was done knowing so, by the perpetrating parties.
The objection, to meet the U.S. Title code statute, had to be in writing, and with both signatures, BEFORE being brought to the floor.
Because they assume that they will always be the ruling majority.
Safe assumption for them, since they can manufacture any votes needed to cover a shortfall. They do it all the time where they already rule.
Note well: If everybody "believes" that 50%+1 can do anything they want without limits (pure democracy), then you don't actually need 50%+1 of the people to vote your way — just make sure that everybody thinks that they did.
Just watched the whole thing. It is worth watching.
I never thought I’d say this, but here goes:
Kudos to Joe Biden.
I mean, he was only doing his constitutional duty... but he did do it. And he did it efficiently and well.
Plugs did his constitutional duty. I got a kick out of Ryan’s gleeful monkey shines in the back ground!
