Earlier this week, Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters hosted a man-on-the-street segment in New York City’s Chinatown about the election. If you were able to make it through the whole thing, congrats. It was one of the most cringeworthy, racist things to happen recently on Fox News, and that’s saying a lot. 

Of course The Daily Show had a response. Correspondent Ronny Chieng went back to Chinatown to ask people about the election, without all the Fox News stereotypes about Chinese, Korean, and Japanese people. Instead, he decided to speak to them as a “human.” And he has some thoughts about Watters’s balls.
