  • - Welcome to "The Daily Show" Instagram account.

  • We're here live with presidential candidate Mr. Andrew Yang.

  • Mr. Yang you're not gonna be in tonight's debates

  • which is a huge bummer.

  • But in lieu of that we've got

  • a "Daily Show" alternative Asian debate, okay?

  • - Yeah.

  • - I'm gonna ask you some questions

  • that some of our viewers will want to know the answers to

  • and by some of our viewers I mean the Asian people.

  • Which means all 10 of us.

  • So, first question is will you promise

  • on day one of your presidency to shut down Panda Express?

  • For all Asian people, do it for the Asians.

  • - I will affirmatively profess my love

  • and support for Panda Express.

  • - What?

  • - I find them to be delicious, tasty.

  • - What!

  • - Ever present, clean.

  • - Have you eaten Panda Express?

  • - Friendly, consistent.

  • - What am I missing here?

  • What, you're scared of losing the Panda Express vote?

  • - Fan, I.

  • - Dude, I'm getting phone calls from everyone right now

  • about this outrage.

  • - Yes, if anything I would open up more Panda Expresses.

  • (chuckling)

  • - Okay, can you at least get them to change

  • the name of it?

  • From Panda Express to just Express.

  • Just drop the Panda.

  • I think the main problem isn't the food,

  • it's that they're calling themselves Asian food.

  • That is the problem.

  • - You know, I think people would get confused by Express.

  • You know, I think Panda Express

  • says Chinese food, delicious.

  • - Wow.

  • - Delicious, accessible.

  • - I ask you the most softball question possible.

  • I think you just lost the presidency based

  • on my first question.

  • Anyway.

  • (chuckling)

  • Okay, but let's take this a little bit more seriously now.

  • Let's say contractors come into the house.

  • Let's say contractors come into your house to fix something

  • but they don't take their shoes off.

  • What do you do in this situation?

  • Do you demand that they take them off

  • or do you let them stomp all over your shit

  • with their filthy shoes?

  • - I say in a very courteous voice,

  • hey do you mind taking your shoes off in the house?

  • And then I pretend to look for those booties

  • for them to put on in the house.

  • Like as if they're gonna be,

  • maybe some slippers or something.

  • But yeah, I ask 'em to take it off

  • because you know, it's just when in Rome

  • you should act like a Roman.

  • When in a house where people don't wear shoes

  • you should probably take your shoes off.

  • - Thank you, and that brings me to my next question.

  • That's a great answer, by the way.

  • When you become president are you gonna make visitors

  • take off their shoes when they visit the White House?

  • - Well certainly not when they're on the main floors.

  • But when they visit me and Evelyn and the family

  • in the residence upstairs,

  • like in the inner sanctum, probably.

  • Because we're probably gonna be

  • a relatively shoe free environment up there.

  • - So you're gonna tell Putin to take off his shoes?

  • - Well, I don't think Putin visits you

  • in the private residence.

  • Because that's literally like your bed chambers and stuff.

  • Unless like Putin--

  • - Okay, nice evasion, answer the question.

  • - Uh, so in the public areas you can keep your shoes

  • or your boots or whatever on.

  • But when you come into the house.

  • It's like house on top of a house

  • is the way the White House is.

  • - Okay, let's talk inauguration here.

  • You've won the presidency.

  • It's time to party, okay.

  • Now, catering.

  • Are you gonna do family style

  • or are you gonna do mash potatoes and some raw romaine?

  • Like the presidents before you.

  • - You know, I would like to go--

  • - Hot pot?

  • - I would like to go pan-global cuisine

  • where you get like foods from all over the place.

  • Because America has people who come

  • in from every part of the world.

  • There's delicious food here from every part of the world.

  • We should have it represented at the inauguration.

  • But I would also say I would not break

  • the bank on the inauguration.

  • I'd rather spend money on something else

  • rather than a party.

  • So maybe that's very Asian of me.

  • But instead of spending money on the inauguration I'd want

  • to actually solve a problem or two.

  • - Okay.

  • - So like say, all the money you were gonna give

  • to the inauguration we'll give it to Flint

  • or fix some infrastructure.

  • - That's a great answer but will you commit now

  • to not ordering Panda Express at the inauguration?

  • - No, I cannot make that commitment.

  • - Wow, okay, you're killing me, man.

  • Listen, you are the only minority candidate left

  • on the Democratic side and the Republican side.

  • So unfortunately you now have to answer questions

  • for all minorities including the black community as well.

  • So because of that, I'm gonna ask you a question now

  • on behalf of the black community.

  • Raisins in the potato salad, yes or no?

  • - I can only answer for myself

  • as a consumer of potato salad.

  • And I would say no to raisins.

  • I don't know what the means about me.

  • I also do wanna say--

  • - That means you know your food.

  • I'd just like to pivot quickly back

  • to some Asian questions here.

  • Seeing as how, for obvious reasons.

  • When you do win the presidency,

  • do you think your mom will still be upset

  • that you didn't become a doctor?

  • - There'll always be some disappointment

  • in her eyes when she looks at me.

  • She tries to hide it really well

  • but you know your own mom.

  • - Boy, do I ever.

  • - You know that there's always something missing

  • from the beginning of your name.

  • They don't call the president,

  • well actually the do call the president, president.

  • (laughing)

  • I was gonna say.

  • - But if you become president can't you just make

  • yourself a doctor?

  • Just get some executive orders in there

  • and just say, oh yeah by the way I'm a doctor now.

  • - That would be hysterical.

  • I should call myself President Andrew Yang, MD.

  • And then have the MD stand for something random

  • that's not even medical doctor.

  • It'll be like, you know Mr. Diplomacy.

  • (chuckling)

  • Let's make some title and pin it on there.

  • - So you've had some really great endorsements lately.

  • You've had Donald Glover, you've had Dave Chappelle, today.

  • Who is your next dream black endorsement?

  • - I have to say, I feel like Dave is my dream endorsement

  • because he was literally my favorite comedian

  • and getting to sit down with him.

  • No offense, Ronny, I mean your my.

  • - Oh, thank you.

  • - Like, one-A favorite comedian.

  • - Great, I'm glad you got to meet your favorite comedian.

  • - But sitting down with Dave and seeing

  • that he has the same concerns about

  • the future that I do and the same hopes

  • for what we can be, that is the dream.

  • Like today is the dream endorsement.

  • Now that Dave's Yang Gang,

  • I'm gonna just throw this out there, LeBron James.

  • - LeBron James.

  • Well, why stop there?

  • Why don't you just shoot for the moon

  • and just go for Obama, or even better Oprah.

  • - Yeah, I mean Barack literally has his VP

  • for eight years is running.

  • Like, you know, Barack's already said

  • he's gonna stay neutral throughout

  • because he doesn't wanna, you know throw

  • his finger on the scales.

  • Oprah I have not had a chance to meet yet

  • and I would be thrilled because I think

  • it was "The Daily Show," it was Trevor

  • that called me the Asian Oprah.

  • So, shouldn't she meet the Asian Oprah?

  • I would think so.

  • Hey Oprah, if you're listening to this, let me know.

  • - Right.

  • Honestly, I can't believe how much free time

  • you have for this.

  • - Well, this has gotta probably be the last question.

  • - Yeah, this is the last one.

  • Last one is, thank you for speaking to us, Mr. Yang.

  • I really appreciate it.

  • - I appreciate you all.

  • I think you do tremendous work.

  • A lot of Americans get their news from "Daily Show,"

  • comedians generally.

  • Trevor is probably one

  • of the most trusted people among Americans.

  • - Yeah, yeah, Trevor whatever.

  • Can you quickly endorse my Netflix special real quick

  • while I have you here?

  • - Oh yeah, Ronny's special is really, really awesome.

  • - Thank you.

  • - I think it's called, "Asian Comedian Destroys America."

  • - Yeah, thanks.

  • - Which, I'm surprised we're actually having

  • this conversation in the post destroyed America

  • because Ronny just destroyed so much.

  • (chuckling)

  • - Okay thanks, Andrew.

  • Thank you so much for speaking to us.

  • Have a safe flight back.

  • Can't wait to speak to you again soon.

  • And everyone at home, please do not go to Panda Express.

  • - Don't listen to the man, it's tasty and nutritious.

  • No, it's not nutritious.

  • I actually, I take back that last piece.

  • Bye, guys!

  • - Thanks a lot.
