BREAKING: The Electoral College Has Spoken, And President Officially Is…

Despite efforts to keep him far away from the White House, and a petition demanding that electors toss their votes, Trump obtained a majority of Electoral College votes yesterday. This officially secures the presidency.

 Not long ago, Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig claimed that more than 20 Republican electors were considering voting against Trump. These “faithless electors” largely failed to materialize, Daily Caller notes, with state after state delivering its electoral votes in accordance with the popular vote.

The first faithless elector came mid-afternoon when a Maine elector cast his vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders instead of Hillary Clinton. Another elector in Minnesota attempted to cast his vote for Sanders, but state law prohibits this action—so he ended up being replaced by an alternate who supported Clinton.

Maybe liberals willing finally accept what the rest of us have known to be the truth—Donald Trump will be our nation’s next president.
