An Upside-Down Mitch McConnell, the Trillion Dollar Coin Infomercial

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert both returned from their extended breaks last night shocked at the abundance of missed late-night humor opportunities over the past three weeks. Stewart ranted while Colbert lamented the disincentivizing tax hikes on rich people like him.

Jimmy Fallon brought back his recurring send-up of the nightly news — Night News Now — to give viewers the latest on what Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., would look like if his face was flipped upside down.

For today's must-see moment, fast forward to 4:00 to see the infomercial the U.S. government produced to explain its rationale behind minting a $1 trillion coin.

Check out the best from last night's late-night political humor...
