Jessica Williams is leaving The Daily Show after four years, but she went out in typical J-Willy style with an impassioned segment on Bernie Sanders supporters who have turned to Donald Trump to combat Hillary Clinton.
“After an impassioned Democratic primary between the Curb Your Enthusiasm guy and the Mother of Dragons, the voting is finally over,” she said, introducing the piece. “With Hillary Clinton as their nominee, the Democratic Party has united without controversy. J.K., y’all. I’m f—king with you!”
Williams sat down with a focus group of Sanders supporters who will vote for “a bigot and racist” in the form of Donald Trump before they would vote for “stack of garbage” Hillary Clinton.
“I don’t get it,” a baffled Williams said. “How do you go from a left-wing progressive like Bernie to a man who worships money only slightly less than he worships himself?” She had to explain to them, issue by issue, how “they are literally opposite people,” but the newly Trump supporters would not budge, simply because they do not like Hillary Clinton.
Williams cued up a clip of Bernie saying he would vote for Hillary in the general election. “Maybe Bernie supporters should just listen to the guy that they’re supporting,” she suggested. “J. Willy, out!”
