Less than a month from inauguration, NMPS (Not My President Syndrome) running rampant

The recounts are over and the Electoral College vote has been held (though not without its share of kicking and screaming, more on which presently). Like it or not, Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. So far, for most liberals it remains “not,” and they are showing no indication of snapping out of their funk and accepting the fact.

On Monday, political “commentator” Keith Olbermann said he intends to voice his objection to the outcome of the election by refusing to call The Donald “President Trump.” Olbermann also said:

Resistance means find a Trump supporter everyday and remind them [sic] he lost the popular vote.

Here is the former MSNBC host making a fool out of himself for those who care to watch.

Outgoing Sen. Barbara Boxer  (D-Calif) took to the pages of USA Today to remind her fellow senators that the I-word is always an option, writing:

Trump has been elected president, and he is now profiting from the results. Right now, foreign leaders are staying in Trump hotels in Washington, D.C. and all over the world. Once he takes the oath of office, it will be a clear violation of the Emoluments Clause….

Experts say if Trump continues to ignore their advice, the only course is impeachment….

As for the aforementioned kicking and screaming, a woman present at the reading of the Electoral College results in Wisconsion had to be removed bodily after throwing a temper tantrum.

In keeping with LU’s policy, which is to avoid reminding those on the Left of the abiding concerns many on the Right had following the 2008 election, I will say simply that our liberal friends no to gain a little perspective and self-control.
