Jessica Williams covered one last political controversy on the campaign trail during her last appearance on "The Daily Show" Thursday night. 

The 26-year-old, who was the Comedy Central show's youngest and first black female correspondent, called out Bernie supporters who say they'll back Trump come election time. 

Over a video montage of Sanders backers declaring why they can't vote for Clinton, Williams directed her attention to a poll showing that 1/5 of Bernie supporters would vote for Donald Trump over Hillary. Williams interviewed some of these die-hard Sanders voters to attempt to understand why they would vote for someone like the presumptive GOP nominee. 

"He is a bigot and a racist, however, Hillary has been a scam artist all her life," said one interviewee. "And I hope the FBI comes and indicts her." 

Of course, all of that didn't sit well with Williams. 

"I don't get it. 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 asked. 

Couldn't have said it better ourselves. Look for Williams when she begins her new, half-hour scripted series on Comedy Central soon. 

 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
