The House sergeant at arms had to throw out multiple protesters attempting to interrupt a joint session of Congress certifying President-elect Donald Trump’s victory Friday.
“There will be order,” Vice President Joe Biden said as he banged his gavel. A joint session of Congress met Friday to certify the Electoral College votes cast during the 2016 presidential race.
Three protesters — two men and a woman — were thrown out of the floor of the House and the gallery.
“Donald Trump is a defender of Nazis,” the woman shouted as she was pulled out of the room.
Biden tried multiple times to talk over the protesters and bring the floor to order.
“The Sergeant at Arms will remove the protesters from the gallery,” he said as the third protester shouted the beginning of the Constitution.
The results were then promptly certified.
