Jon Stewart Calls Congress The 'Sharknado 2' Of Government

How bad is Congress? On the final day before recess, lawmakers on the Hill were unable to pass any legislation to address the immigration crisis unfolding at the border.

One senator called it a failure -- but on Thursday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart had a better description for it.

"When you guys suck, it is not failure. It is just you living up to our extremely low expectations," said Stewart. "Congress is the 'Sharknado 2' of government: Of course it sucked. It was supposed to suck."

But the House did manage to take action on one issue. Check out the clip above to find out what it is as well as Stewart's take on it.
