From the day he first entered the presidential race, there have been countless futile efforts by hyperventilating Democrats to somehow derail Republican President-elect Donald Trump’s march to the White House.
Unfortunately for them, their last chance to block Trump’s electoral victory came and went today as a joint session of Congress officially certified the results of last month’s meeting of the Electoral College, according to The Hill.
Several House Democrats did make a last-ditch effort to stop Trump, raising objections that were summarily ruled out of order due to a rule that requires any objection be supported by a sitting senator.
One of those who attempted unsuccessfully to raise an objection was California Rep. Maxine Waters, who reportedly wailed, “Is there one United States senator who will join me?”
Ironic: When Maxine Waters wailed “Is there one United States senator who will join me?” most of the Dem side of the joint session was empty

Her plea was met by silence from the nearly empty Democrat side of the floor.
At one point, after making clear what the standing rules were for official objections, Vice President Joe Biden declared, “It is over,” banging his gavel to usher in Trump’s presidency to peals of laughter from the Republican side of the floor.

The Electoral College votes were then counted and certified, making the election of Trump official.
All that remained was his actual swearing in during his inauguration ceremony.
In the end, Trump won the election by a count of 304 electoral votes to 227 votes for his Democrat opponent, Hillary Clinton, with the seven remaining electoral votes being split among several individuals who weren’t even on the ballot for the presidency.
As official as it will ever be:
Spotted Eagle: 1
2016 election: over

For all of the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth by Democrats over the past two months, their temper tantrums and shockingly hateful and intolerant behavior were for naught, as they were incapable of preventing Trump from being officially named the next president of the United States.
Good riddance. Now we can get on about the business of making America great again.
