All right, let's move onto the world of news media.

We're now joinedby senior media correspondent

-Ronny Chieng, everybody!-(cheers and applause)

Thank you. Thank you.

Hey, Trevor, I'm not sureif you're familiar

with the internet or TV,but if you are,

you've probably seenthis (bleep)

that happened a few days agoon Fox News.

In the firstpresidential debate,

China was mentioned 12 times.

So we sent Watters downto New York's Chinatown

to sample political opinion.

Okay, first of all,let me get this straight.

They say "China" in the debateso you go to Chinatown?

-(laughter)-In New York?

So when they mention Mexico, doyou send someone to Taco Bell?


Chinatown is nothing like China!

They got nothingto do with each other.

That's like if they brought upwomen's rights,

so I decide to go over toFox News to get some opinions.


Now, as dumb as that premise is,

it is nothing comparedto the idiocy that followed.

And by the way, we haven't addedanything to this.

This is the original footagefrom Fox News.

(Asian-style music plays)

(loud boom)

(dance beat playing)

Am I supposed to bowto say hello?

(speaks Chinese)

I like these watches.Are they hot?

JCPenney. $3.98.


Who are you gonna vote for?

Clinton's wife has a name.What is it?

Uh... oh, man.

I forget it.

Well, snap out of it.

-Do you know karate?-Yeah, I know.

Hit my hand.

(martial arts grunting)

Ah... that's the spot.

Is it the Year of the Dragon?


No, it's actuallythe Year of Go (bleep) Yourself!

(laughter, applause, whooping)

What the hell was that?

How was that on the news?

In fact,how was that even on TV?

Where the (bleep)did this come from?

I mean, everyone's beenwondering who'll be the target

of 2016's worst racism.

I didn't even know Asianswere in the running.

Oh, and by the way,if you're gonna be racist,

at least getyour stereotypes right,

you ignorant sack of (bleep).

Karate isn't Chinese,it's Japanese!

And you're doing itin a taekwondo studio,

which is Korean,you (bleep) jack-off!

Jack on! Jack off!Jack on! Jack off!

(cheering, applause)

(bleep) this guy!

And seriously! Mr. Miyagi?

Update your reference material.

That's like memaking fun of Americans

for Saturday Night Fever and Mr. T.

Yeah, real topical stuff, buddy.

If you want to comeat Chinese people,

make funof China's high pollution,

or the fact that they censormost of the Internet.

Which in this casemay actually be a good thing,

since no person in Chinawill ever have to watch

your garbage attempt at comedy!

Donald Trump beating up on Chinaat the debate.


(crickets chirping)

Trump has been beating upon China.

How does that make you feel?

Speak! Speak!Why don't you speak?

Hey, asshole,they don't speak English.

That's why they're silent.

It's easy to make fun of someonewhen they can't respond.

Here, I'll show you.Hey, douchebag,

why do you look like a guy whocarries around a pack of roofies

-just in case?-(laughter, groaning)

And why do you look likeyou have hookers on speed-dial?

Oh, and follow-up question:

Is it hard to fitBill O'Reilly's entire scrotum

in your mouth?

-(crickets chirping)-(laughter, groaning)

This might come as a surprise,but Chinese Americans do

actually have genuine thoughtson this year's election.

That's why I went to Chinatownto speak to people

in a languagethey understood-- human.

Wait. You understandAmerican politics enough

to lodge a protest vote?


I'm from Queens.

What are your thoughts on theJesse Watters video on Fox News?

The chicken(bleep) reporterwho came down here

and thought he was big (bleep)because he talked to people

who couldn't speak English?

Yeah, that douche bagpiece of (bleep).

The one who was sent hereby the larger chicken (bleep)

who wouldn't come to Chinatownbecause he was afraid

-to do it himself, you meanthat one? -Yeah, that guy.

The one with no testicles,the one who came down here

who said,"Let me talk to some old people

-Totally.-"and let me put them on camera

"without asking them,

"and sort of put themon national television

and made fun of themin the worst possible way,"

-that asshole?-Okay, I think we're talking

-about the same guy.-Right, right.

What was the question again?

I can't remember.

(applause, cheering)

Thank you very much, Ronny.Ronny Chieng, everyone.
