I was rooting for you. We were all rooting for you!

Published December 20, 2016

  1. On Monday, Dec. 19, the Electoral College voted to officially make Donald Trump the 45th president of the United States

    Although many hoped that the electors would be swayed by public pressure to vote against Trump, only a handful of faithless electors actually voted in protest. 

    According to the New York Times, around 34 electors were prepared to vote against the President-elect, but when push came to shove, they were afraid of the consequences. 

  2. After hearing the results, the first thing the president-elect did was release a statement that opened with a false claim
  3. During the vote, protesters spoke out against electors upholding Trump's presidency
  4. And people felt let down by the Electoral College
  5. And more people are discussing the idea of abolishing the entire existence of the Electoral College
  6. But not without roasting the Electoral College, the president-elect and the country first
