Democrat Throws Temper Tantrum During Congress’ Tally of Electoral Votes

On Friday, the US House of Representatives and US Senate conducted the solemn duty of verifying the votes cast by the delegates of the Electoral College. In a last-ditch effort to deny Donald Trump of the election, some Democrats did whatever they could to disrupt and hamper the validation process.

Ever since the election results pushed Trump over the 270 needed electoral votes to give him the victory over Hillary Clinton, thousands of Democrats have displayed their anger, sorrow and bitterness. Never in the history of the United States has a political group been such poor losers or acted worse than two-year-old kids throwing temper tantrums.

We saw many thousands of college students who were too stressed out and devastated at the Clinton loss that they walked out of college classrooms. They sat on the sidewalks and drew pictures with crayons and markers while they drank hot chocolate.

Many took to the streets with signs saying ‘Not My President’ and other indications of their refusal to accept the outcome of the election. Recounts were launched in several states, but the only results they yielded were more votes for Trump than initially reported.

Then came the calls for delegates to the Electoral College to turn traitor on their sworn duties and vote for Clinton instead of Trump. Yet, when it came time for the delegates to cast their votes, Trump clearly won the presidency by a substantial margin and Clinton was still the loser.

Yet, it seems that some Democrats were still determined to prevent the inevitable from happening.

When the joint session of Congress was called to order last Friday in order to verify the 538 electoral votes cast by the delegates. There is one vote cast for each of the 435 Representatives and 100 Senators.

As Vice President Joe Biden, who presides over the Senate, began the proceedings, some of the politicians belonging to the Democratic Party began shouting and throwing a temper tantrum and trying to disrupt and prevent the proceedings from taking place. It seems the most vocal among them was Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, the Representative from the 18th District of Texas, which encompasses much of the Houston metropolitan area. Lee is also a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and Congressional Black Caucus. I want to remind you that ‘progressive’ is just a politically correct term used instead of the socially unacceptable term ‘socialism’. It represents and promotes socialist ideologies, which are contrary to everything that made America the great nation it was.

Biden pounded his gavel and had to repeat:

“There is no debate. There is no debate. There is no debate.”

“It is over.”

Rep. Lee’s outbursts were so demonstrative of a child having a temper tantrum, that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan could not help from smiling and nearly broke out in laughter.

Lee is well known for her outrageous outbursts over the years. Among her many outbursts and words of wisdom, Sheila Jackson Lee in 2024 stated on the House floor that the Constitution is 400 years old:

“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”

At the time she made this statement on the floor of the House, the Declaration was only 238 years old and the Constitution was only 226 years old. Her 400-year mark would have put the Constitution being written just 7 years after the first settlers landed and established Jamestown, Virginia.

This clearly demonstrates just how poorly Lee was educated and how unqualified she is to be a member of Congress.

While visiting the US-Mexican border in 2014 in her home state of Texas, Lee stated:

“I disagree that our border is in devastating condition.”

“I have been on the border, I have been on the Rio Grande. I have been on the border at night.”

“This is not a national security crisis.”

At the time Lee was saying that the border is not a national security crisis, she was handing out lollipops to illegal aliens. Obviously, she cares more about people who violate federal law than she does for the people she is supposed to represent.

Lee also has no regard for the Constitution and proper Congressional procedures. In 2014, she stated:

“I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.”

Since when was it the job of Congress to draft executive orders? It seems that like Obama, Lee wanted to bypass Congress in order to promote her liberal anti-American agenda.

A couple of other brilliant statements made by the learned Representative from Texas are:

Speaking on the House floor, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee defended gang members committing crimes with guns.
“Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked, that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws. Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”

Speaking on the House floor, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee claimed she was once a slave.
“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.”
Sheila Jackson Lee, February 13, 2013 

According to a lawsuit, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee demanded 18 hour days out of staffer Mona Floyd, refused to accommodate her visual disability, and made critical remarks about her when speaking to other employees.
“I don’t give a damn about her disability.”
Sheila Jackson Lee, August 6, 2010 

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee had an interesting view on the Vietnam War, and on how two separate Vietnams apparently still exist in peace.
“And I want to say to my colleagues that I stand here asking us to do what we did not do in Vietnam. Was to recognize the valiant and outstanding service of our men and women. And to understand that victory had been achieved. Today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they’re living side by side. Because that was a civil war. And because the leadership of this nation did not listen to the mothers and fathers who borned the burden of 58,000 dead and did not declare victory, the mounting death, the violence continued going up and up. Rather than understanding the political nature of the war in Vietnam, we did not listen to those families.”

After ordering her driver to literally park at the front door of the US Treasury against Secret Service orders, and then demanding her driver to not pull over for pursuing Secret Service officers, her driver finally pulled over against her wishes. She then confronted the Secret Service officials.
“I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee! Who do you think you are?”

Former Capitol office executive assistant and events scheduler Rhiannon Burruss claimed Sheila Jackson Lee was outraged when she found out someone was given a chauffeur to a Selma march anniversary, while she wasn’t given one.
“You don’t understand. I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen.”

According to a former staffer, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee caused a scene when she found out a meal she wanted wasn’t available on the type of flight she was on.
“Don’t you know who I am? I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered.”

According to former staffers, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee often referred to her employees using extremely colorful language.
“You stupid motherf*cker.”

Hopefully, the citizens of Houston will wake up and realize what an arrogant, spoiled ill-tempered, self-entitled person Sheila Jackson Lee really is and send her sorry fanny packing from the political area. I wonder how such a woman would survive in the real world without all of her entitlements and privileges? Would she be able to actually hold down a job or would she end up on welfare and other government handouts?
