Watch Jessica Williams' Blistering Final Report on The Daily Show

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.

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.

"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."

Williams offered this analogy to try and understand the voters' 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:

Will you miss Williams on The Daily Show?

Following Ms Williams's eloquent dog s*** (DS) analogy I would take it a stage further. For decades we have been offered the same DS from both restaurants supplied by very wealthy restaurant owners who have told us the DS is actually the finest quality steak. We know they are talking BS about the DS and they know we know but they keep serving it. I realise as I am sitting in the same alleyway as Ms Williams as she is, eating the same DS because that is the only thing our political leaders are serving but at least nobody is insulting my intelligence by telling me there is a choice, from any of them. And thank you Ms Williams we will miss you and your ability to take political debate to the level of DS. At least you are honest.

I just found her annoying. In any case she didn't write any of the stuff she said, but her delivery and her shrill voice, made me shudder.

Just like flseGOD J.willy perpetuated racist stereotypes and her type of faux suburban black behaviour is deplorable. Her gimmick her attitude her whole character contributes to the fact that the "N" word has yet to become a historically dead term. J.willy wasnt genuine she was just another offensive black stereotype finally going away... For a little while at least

Finally she gets her own project. She totally deserves it. She's brilliant. The show has now lost two super talents when Samantha and Jessica have left the building.

I think what a lot of people don't realize is that the Bernie supporters who are willing to vote for Trump are not a loss for Hillary. These are people who were swayed by Sander's one issue, the injustices of income inequality/big banks, but would have normally voted for Trump if Sanders hadn't been in the race.

The Sanders supporters who don't like Hillary, but actually understand the issues, will either hold their noses and vote for Hillary, vote Green Party, or abstain. But Hillary isn't losing any Democrats/liberals directly to Trump.

Classic liberal BS. There is a major coincidence in polar opposite sides.. they are both very far from the center.

Trevor and the correspondents gave Jessica Williams a touching and dignified farewell. I am sure Jessica will do very well on her new show.

Just decided this week to no longer watch the daily show... just get the feeling that Trevor is just doing a stand up comedy routine every day now where your hit over the head with the jokes instead of more subtle and nuanced pieces... The bits with the correspondents are usually top notch though...

Nah, one hater doesn't matter. What does is the hilarious coverage of the "Democalypse" in the contingent coverage of the clusterfuck that is American politics/presidential campaigns!!!

She has been awesome on The Daily Show and they will be hard pressed to replace her. Jessica and Sam Bee are two of the best political satirists in your Country. Not best female satirists, simply the best.
