John Dickerson hosted his last edition of Face the Nation on Sunday so he can devote himself full time to CBS This Morning. "Surely you expected to be at Face the Nation for longer than two years — did Donald Trump break you?" Stephen Colbert asked Dickerson on Tuesday's Late Show. "Did he make you flee" from Washington to New York? "No," Dickerson said, laughing. "Because I still get to cover that story." "From a safe distance," Colbert quipped back, joking about ponchos.

"You are like a national repository of norms and standards," with "a great memory for the history of Washington," Colbert said. "What do you think are the norms and standards that Donald Trump has changed the most in the first year?" Dickerson pointed to the documented mountain of "misstatements and untruths" Trump has told as president. "Now, some of our best presidents have been dishonest," he said, citing FDR, though Trump "in his public comments has been different than any president we've ever seen before."
