House Republicans and President Donald Trump took a large step in their efforts to repeal and replace the failing ObamaCare system on Thursday. In a very tight vote, Republicans passed their health care legislation and handed the bill off to the Senate. “But lawmakers voted without the final bill ever being scored, as they say in Washington,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir at the start of World News Tonight, “Meaning they voted without knowing how many fewer Americans would be insured, some predict tens of millions.”

Seconds after the Republican House of Representatives finally passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA), CBS News did their best  on Thursday to tout Democratic concerns, pro-ObamaCare protesters, and hypocritically chide Republican supporters for not being “modest” in their massive legislative achievement.

On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump ending his interview with John Dickerson when the CBS host started pressing him about his claims that President Barack Obama had ordered wiretapping against him, liberal CNN political commentator Paul Begala lambasted Trump as someone who makes a worse President than a dog would make.

After Trump abruptly ended an interview with CBS’s John Dickerson yesterday, Late Show host Stephen Colbert devoted his entire monologue to the contentious exchange Monday night, specifically taking issue with Trump calling Dickerson’s show, “Deface the Nation.” Colbert attacked the president in an angry profanity-filled rant to end his monologue, crassly calling Trump’s mouth a “holster” for Vladimir Putin’s penis.

In one of the most noteworthy moments from Face the Nation host John Dickerson’s all-access weekend with President Trump, an angry and peeved President shooed away Dickerson following a tense exchange about accusations the Trump team were spied on by then-President Barack Obama and his administration during the campaign.

President Donald Trump sat down with CBS’s John Dickerson for an interview about the first 100 days of his presidency, which aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation. In between talking about the serious topics, the President took shots at the media, including his host. “You know, it is very funny when the fake media goes out, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes I must say is you,” he told Dickerson. “I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation,’ but, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.

Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.

In an act similar to that of a whining child, Senate Democrats attempted to block the President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch Thursday. Republicans, in turn, followed through on their promise to execute the so-called “nuclear option” to bring debate to a close and move the nomination forward. In response, ABC and NBC were up in arms that evening. “The Republican leader today emerged from the partisan battlefield with a thumbs up. The top Democrat, his head hung low in defeat,” bemoaned ABC’s Mary Bruce on World News Tonight

On Sunday, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney was doing his due diligence to help sell President Donald Trump’s federal budget by making the rounds on some of the network morning shows. When he appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation and NBC’s Meet the Press, moderators John Dickerson and Chuck Todd peppered the White House official with ridiculous and conflicting questions. “Well, what about the President's vacations? You know, when he goes down to Mar-a-Lago,” Dickerson pressed while openly admitting that it was a “political question.”

CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King could barely contain joy on Friday as she talked about Jeff Sessions recusing himself from any investigation into Russia’s connections with the 2016 election. Talking to John Dickerson of Face the Nation, she enthused, “It is like a song out of Empire. That drip, drip dripity drop where we just heard the President say, ‘No one I know has had contact.’”

While most of the major broadcast network anchors and panelists were pleasantly surprised by President Trump’s Tuesday night speech to Congress, former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw uncorked some long-winded complaints about the address that he claimed will have fact-checkers “very busy for the next 24 hours.”

Add CBS host John Dickerson to the list of journalists who have apparently not felt the need to press Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings when he claims that millions of Americans have been "denied their right to vote" because of alleged "voter suppression" perpetrated by Republicans. Reminiscent of ABC's George Stephanopoulos from last week's This Week, on yesterday's Face the Nation, Dickerson did not challenge Rep. Cummings on the issue, but, on December 4, the CBS host did repeatedly press then-White House chief of staff-designate Reince Priebus about whether he believed Donald Trump's claims that millions voted illegally in the presidential election. And on her MSNBC show, Andrea Mitchell Reports, NBC correspondent Mitchell also did not find his claim questionable.
