President Obama Issues Executive Order in Light of Russian Hacking

President Obama has ordered 35 Russian diplomats out of the country because of Russian hacking. In retaliation, Putin has ordered American diplomats to stay in Russia.
In Moscow, an unnamed high level American diplomat was quoted as saying, "Hmmm. Stay in Russia in the winter or return to Trump's America...that's a tough call."
Obama's Executive Order kicks out of the US all operatives who worked with Putin and Russia to hack the presidential election. He's still waiting to hear back from the Justice Department if that includes Donald Trump, also. "We wish to be thorough," noted the President. 
Upon hearing that all Russian hacks must leave the United States immediately, comedian Yaakov Smirnoff opined, "I am going to miss playing my theater in Branson, Missouri."
