The Electoral College formalized Donald Trump's election victory on Monday despite protests around the country to encourage GOP electors to abandon the Republican.
The president-elect easily racked up the 270 electoral votes needed to send him to the White House. Interest in the normally mundane voting process spiked this year as opposition to Trump continues to fester, fueled by Clinton's success in capturing more than 2.6 million more votes than her Republican opponent.
Anti-Trump protesters descended on state capitols throughout the U.S. in a last-ditch effort to persuade so-called "faithless electors" in states Trump won to change their vote. Many of the Republicans casting ballots said they were inundated with calls and emails urging them to switch their votes.
All I can say is that we fought out little heart's out, but in the end I think this was all but a forgone conclusion.
The time to keep this megalomaniac out of the White House was back in November, and for a variety of reasons, most of them mistaken, people did not vote in sufficient numbers to make that happen.
For the record I will NEVER refer to this guy as President Trump, and when I do use the word "president" when referring to him it will always remain in lower case, because let's face it he is a tiny, insignificant, stubby fingered, vulgarian, and the title of "President" is too prestigious a title to ever apply to him.
We must never forget that he did NOT win this election.
He, his Russian puppet masters, the useful idiots of Wikileaks , and the FBI cronies, STOLE this election from, here let me take this term back, We The People.
He is not now, and never will be, my president.
And in four years we are coming to take our White House back from this Russian backed interloper.
Count on it!
