From the creator of House of Cards to a Nashville star and a man who saw the fall of President Nixon up close and personal, actors, pundits and politcos are clearly fascinated by the tale of Sally Yates, the acting Attorney General fired today by President Donald Trump. Even the supposed resemblance between Yates and actress Jane Fonda was duly noted. Here’s a collection of reactions.
Remember 'Crimson Tide'? Sally Yates went Denzel on Trump: "No sir, I Do Not Concur!" Pretty Dope

Sally Yates looks like Jane Fonda.
Nothing deep here or political.

If Sally Yates disagreed with her boss, Pres. Trump, the proper course of action is to resign. Staying to get fired is grandstanding.

Worth noting Sally Yates was Trump team's choice for Acting AG – only when she, and four Federal judges disagreed with EO, was she let go.

Sally Yates is upholding the principles of law and the rights of people. She did her job.
