Good morning everyone. If you missed it, here's The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore taking apart the GOP for following Donald Trump's lead on birthright citizenship.

How many of these bobblehead shows that have Trump on are going to ask him if he thinks we should be deporting Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal any time soon?

I won't be holding my breath. Here's the lineup this weekend from our friends over at Daily Kos:

Morning lineup:

Meet the Press: Failed CEO Carly Fiorina (R); California Gov. Jerry Brown (D); Others TBD.

Face the Nation: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX); New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R); Documentary Filmmaker Ken Burns; Roundtable: Michael Scherer (TIME), Manu Raju (Politico), Ruth Marcus (Washington Post) and Anne Gearan (Washington Post).

This Week: GOP Frontrunner Donald Trump; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R); Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D); Roundtable: Nancy Gibbs (TIME), Rich Lowry (National Review), Matt Bai (Yahoo News), Republican Strategist Ana Navarro and Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D).

Fox News Sunday: Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R); Josh Alcorn (Draft Biden Siper PAC); Roundtable: Kimberley Strassel (Wall Street Journal), Peter Baker (New York Times), Robert Costa (Washington Post) and Juan Williams (Fox News).

State of the Union: "Brain Surgeon" Dr. Ben Carson (R); Donald Trump's Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski; Former Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA).

So, what's catching your eye this morning other than telling everyone how much you hate these shows or don't watch them? We welcome any tips on how badly the Villagers are abusing our airways these days, or where they allowed our politicians to lie on the air without being fact checked.

Can you help us out?
