Q. President Donald Trump fired acting AG Sally Yates when she told Justice Department lawyers not to defend the executive order on immigration and refugees. Was the firing appropriate?

  • A. Yes. She served at the pleasure of the president and openly defied and refused “to enforce a legal order.” (54%, 188 Votes)
  • C. No. As the nation’s top law enforcement official, the Attorney General’s responsibility is to defend the Constitution and “to always seek justice and stand for what is right.” (42%, 144 Votes)
  • B. Maybe. She should have expressed her concerns with the legality of the order with the president rather than deciding on her own that the Justice Department would not support the order. (4%, 14 Votes)

Q: Several members of Congress have said they aren’t showing up for the presidential inauguration. Should they be attending?

Q. For the first time in several years, the Polar Express will not take holiday revelers on a tour of the Christmas lights in Pulaski. What do you think about that?

Q. The CIA has determined that Russia hackers influenced the presidential election, and did so in support of Donald Trump. What do you think about this?

  • E. Are you really believing this? Like Donald Trump said, reports of Russian interference are “ridiculous” and “just another excuse” by Clinton supporters. (43%, 216 Votes)
  • B. This doesn’t surprise me, because there was no way Donald Trump could have beaten Hillary Clinton without covert shenanigans such as Russian interference. (35%, 173 Votes)
  • D. Whether there was interference or not, even if a new election were to be conducted, Donald Trump would win again. (11%, 57 Votes)
  • A. A foreign country meddling in a U.S. election is the equivalent of a political 9/11. The election results should be overturned and a new election held. (7%, 33 Votes)
  • C. This is a disturbing finding that impacts the integrity of our election, but efforts to hold a new election would be too costly and further disrupt the presidential transition process. (4%, 22 Votes)
