The Daily Show Says Good-bye to a Teary Jessica Williams With a Big Ol’ Bear Hug


Jessica Williams left The Daily Show on Thursday, and the erstwhile correspondent is such a top-to-bottom delight that she got us a present: one last segment. As her final act of incredulity before leaving to work on her own pilot for Comedy Central, Williams talked to a bunch of numbskull Bernie Sanders supporters who are going to stick it to Clinton by voting Trump. Things then went from standard politics-level upsetting to straight-up verklempt, as Trevor Noah and the rest of the correspondents said their good-byes to a visibly moved Williams. They capped the farewell by amassing Williams in a group bear hug, because how better to bury your head in the sand about a sad good-bye than to bury your head in a bunch of people? Watch the parting of ways above, and Williams's last ride below.
