The Daily Show sent Jason Jones to Russia to get to the bottom of why the Winter Olympics in Sochi have been such a trainwreck. So Jones went to Moscow because, in his words, “if you really want to understand Russia” that’s where you have to go. And so he did. His assessment: “This place looks a lot like America, just with a f*cked up alphabet.”

The total result is a hysterical segment that culminates with Jones getting threatened by former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev after Jones suggested that Russia rebuild the Berlin Wall.

“Who asked for this meeting? If you bring cameras in here again, I will put you against the wall,” Gorbachev threatened. “I’ve had enough of this.”
