The White House announced this week that it wants to boost computer science education in American classrooms. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked Tuesday night that the administration hopes that "one day, America will be able to hack its own election."

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday about Boeing's contract for a new Air Force One, saying "costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!" Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked that Trump treated "a $4 billion plane like it was a pizza from GrubHub. Desus and Mero joked about Trump's gold-plated private plane, saying "a gold sink isn't going to save you from a Sidewinder." Colbert also joked that Trump's social media habits have real-world stock market consequences, saying "He could cause the next Great Depression with a Yelp! review of Taco Bell."
