The senior correspondent’s last episode featured one final field piece centered on followers of Bernie Sanders who have decided to support “diarrhea-of-the-mouth” Republican Donald Trump over “demon” Democrat Hillary Clinton.
After the segment, host Trevor Noah noted that this was an “exciting-yet-sad moment” as Williams prepared to say goodbye before he cued up a short highlight reel featuring some of her greatest moments. Among the clips was her epic takedown of Beyoncé’s Super Bowl Halftime Show critics.
Afterwards, Noah brought out fellow correspondents Jordan Klepper, Hasan Minhaj, Roy Wood, Jr., Desi Lydic and Ronny Chieng for one last group hug.
Williams, now 26, made history as the youngest-ever contributor on Comedy Central’s flagship program when she joined Stewart at just 22-years-old. The network, which watched Daily Show standouts Samantha Bee (of TBS’ Full Frontal) and John Oliver (of HBO’s Last Week Tonight) move on to bigger and better things, has already brokered a deal with Williams to write, produce and star in a scripted series about a young feminist who has no idea how to put her alleged expertise to good use.
