Washed up actors crying about Trump and Electoral College

Exactly. Surprised they didn't get Jay-Z and Beyonce in there.

Or Farrell or Alicia Keys or Katy Perry or any of those dummies. I have a hell of a whole lot more respect for artists like Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift who said they will not be revealing who they are voting for precisely because they didn't want people to vote for somebody just because they told them to. They didn't want to use their platform to influence other people's decisions, and that to me is alot more noble than shamelessly using your fame in order to try and get more people on "your side".

I sincerely hope that a fair number of electors' refuse to vote for Donald Trump. He lost the popular vote by nearly three million, and won the electoral college by fewer than sixty thousand votes in three States. Trump has no mandate and has continued to be the same un-Presidential egomaniac he was during his campaign.

I believe it's more like 80,000 votes, but it doesn't matter, that is the system. I am getting kind of tired of people thinking that just because someone doesn't win the popular vote and becomes president that is the fault in the system, it is not a fault, it IS the system. The popular vote, especially when swayed by one state(CA) is not only not the end all be all some portray it as, it is completely irrelevant.

I am not talking about just anyone, I'm talking about Donald Trump. He is the worst candidate in my lifetime and I'm not even saying that I don't understand why or how the electoral college works. It would actually show the system works as intended if enough choose to be faithless and not vote for Trump. But even that is beside the point. I hope to see at least enough not vote for Trump rational people (this obviously excludes Donald Trump and his small but vocal fans) understand that regardless of if he ultimately swears the oath, he DOES NOT have a mandate.

Get used to it. Donald Trump sucks, and we in the majority have a right and a duty to continue to point that fact out.

Actually, Hillary was the worst candidate in history since she lost to Donald Trump within our system. Nationwide popular vote count is irrelevant particularly when it was one state that tipped that balance.

As to an elector not voting for Trump, this is a pipe dream. These electors are not just random state residents, but rather low to mid-level party members, and the RNC will do everything in its power to keep them in line next Monday. Alternatively, I would think it would be more likely that some of the Democrat electors would be "faithless" in voting for Hillary since there was clear evidence the DNC was in the bag for Hillary all along and Bernie never had a fair chance. Would it be surprising to hear that Trump won by more than the current difference of 74 with some DNC electors voting for Bernie instead of Hillary?

I ain't getting used to anything just yet, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. Give me one full year and I will give you my opinion on his presidency. And you know I don't sugar coat things.

I think if enough electors did not vote for him and Clinton ended up winning(which we know isn't going to happen but hypothetically speaking) it is going to be disastrous. I would much rather have him sit than see what would happen to this country if that happened. If we think the not my president riots were bad.....

The Butt Hurt is strong

But he did not win the popular vote, he does not have a mandate. Lol. When the Butthurt is so strong you can't cope anymore and you're losing it.

Keep repeating that.

A nice warm cop of Putin stole the election, also seems to ease the pain

Did Putin and or Wikileaks steal the election, or just reveal the dirty laundry of the DNC and Hillary campaign which could be construed as providing a valuable service to the thinking voters of America.
