Watch a Bunch of Democrats Try to Steal Our Democracy

BY:

Congress officially certified Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States on Friday afternoon over the objections of Democrats.

A handful of congressional Democrats objected as electoral votes for Trump were counted, but they were unable to hold up the certification process because they did not have the support of any Senate Democrats.

Vice President Joe Biden presided over the proceedings. He was forced to gavel the House into order numerous times as Democrats spoke over him with their objections.

At one point, during Biden informed the Democrats that "It's over," causing House Republicans to erupt in laughter.

Just before the election results were certified, Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) pleaded for one Senate Democrat to sign on to her objections, which would have opened the session for debate. Zero senators obliged.
