Former ESPN Reporter Allison Williams Speaks to Tucker Carlson on Long-Term Ramifications of Mandates

Days after leaving ESPN over its vaccine mandate, Allison Williams signed a deal with ​​The Daily Wire. Williams is now free to talk about what she wants.

Wednesday, Williams appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss leaving ESPN and the long-term ramifications of vaccine mandates.

Here are some of the highlights:

“This was the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make in my life,” Williams started. “There were a lot of sleepless nights. There were a lot of tears shed leading up to making this decision, but ultimately I had to do what was best for my health individually.”

She cast skepticism about whether the mandates had a net benefit to public safety and health given the short-staffed hospitals and police units around the country.

“Let me ask you this: are we safer as a community with less police officers? Are we better off as a community when our hospitals are short-staffed because nurses are forced to leave their jobs over these mandates?” she asked.

“I am one of many across the country who lost their job because of a mandate. My impact on society? Not that significant, right? I’m a sports broadcaster. I understand that.

“We really are opening ourselves up to some long-term ramifications of which we probably can’t even imagine at this time.”

Williams made clear, she is not anti-vax but anti-mandate. There’s a clear distinction between the two that the rest of the media won’t acknowledge.

Here’s the full segment.

I suspect Allison Williams will elevate her career post-ESPN and open doors for others. I explained last week.
