Williams’ final report focused on supporters of Bernie Sanders who say they plan to vote for Donald Trump in the general election against Sanders’ Democratic primary opponent, Hillary Clinton. For her final appearance on The Daily Show, longtime correspondent Jessica Williams signed off in true Jessica Williams fashion – with scathing, hilarious political commentary that highlighted some sad-but-true trends.
“I don’t get it,” Williams says. “How do you go from a left-wing progressive like Bernie to a man who worships money only slightly less than he worships himself? … They are literally the opposite people.”
The Daily Show is losing its best correspondent
Williams offered this analogy to try and understand the Breitling Replica Watchesvoters’ mindset: “Last weekend I wanted to go to this new restaurant, but my friends wanted to go to this old restaurant, and I got outvoted. So instead of eating with them at this old restaurant, I went into an alley and I sat down, and I ate a pile of dog s—.”
Williams ended the piece with her signature send-off: “J. Willy, out!”
Her in-studio goodbye was more emotional, with Williams getting choked up as host Trevor Noah told her, before introducing a highlight reel of her standout moments: “You are the coolest, most awesome person. This building is going to suffer a severe lack of J. Willy-ness without you.”
Williams is moving on to work on a pilot for Comedy Central. Check out her final Daily Show package in the video above, and her official goodbye/highlight reel here:
