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.
