Don Lemon Thinks Nikki Haley is ‘Not in Her Prime’ as a Woman
Either Lemon wants to get fired or he has a major problem with women. It’s probably both.
I think Don Lemon wants CNN to fire him since he was demoted to the morning show from a primetime slot. I also think he’s misogynistic, and I don’t throw around that word as others do.
Lemon’s remark on Republican Nikki Haley, who announced her candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, is one of the many misogynistic things he has said in recent weeks.
Apparently, Nikki Haley is “past her prime” as a woman at the age of 51, so she better not bash others about their ages. She wants a competency test for politicians 75 and up.
Did Lemon support old woman Hillary Clinton in 2016?
You know, like 80-year-old Joe Biden and 76-year-old Donald Trump. I can’t blame her, considering Biden is not, um, yeah.
Lemon: This whole talk about age makes me uncomfortable. I think it’s the wrong road to go down. She says people, you know, politicians are suddenly not in their prime. Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime. Sorry, When a woman is in their prime in 20s and 30s and maybe 40s…
Poppy Harlow: What are you talking — Wait…
Lemon: That’s not according to me.
Harlow: Prime for what?
Lemon: It depends. It’s just like, prime. If you look it up. If you Google when is a woman in her prime, it’ll say 20s, 30s, 40s.
Harlow: Forties! Oh my god, I have another decade.
Lemon: I’m not saying I agree with that. So I think she has to be careful about saying that, you know, politicians are in their prime.
Harlow: Are you talking about prime for, like, childbearing? Or are you talking about prime for being president?
Lemon: Don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just saying what the facts are. Google it. Everybody at home, when is a woman in her prime? It says 20s, 30s and 40s. I’m just saying Nikki Haley should careful about saying that politics are not in their prime, and they need to be in their prime when they serve. She would not be in her prime according to Google or whatever it is.
Don Lemon says Nikki Haley “isn’t in her prime”
“A woman is considered to be in her prime in her 20s, and 30s, & maybe 40s…"
Harlow: "Are you talking about prime for like, child bearing?"

In September, Lemon asked S.E. Cupp if she had Mommy Brain because she forgot what she wanted to say:
“The numbers don’t add up,” Cupp said of Republicans.
“What do you mean?” Lemon asked.
“The ideas [currently being touted by Republican politicians] are not popular among Republicans. Thirteen percent of Republicans want a total ban on abortion. Seventy percent of Republicans want — sorry,” Cupp said, not finishing the statistic. Lemon jumped in to suggest she was referring to Republicans who approve of some abortion restrictions.
“No, no, I was going on a different issue … I mean, a majority of —” Cupp said.
“Did you lose your train of thought? I do it all the time,” Lemon responded.
Cupp continued her thought by expanding on her claim that the majority of Republicans do not support more extreme positions like abortion and book bans.
“A majority of Republicans oppose book bans. A majority of Republicans think that talking about race and learning about racism in school is a good thing. Majorities of Republicans are not where today’s MAGA Republicans are going and all the things they keep talking about, which begs the question: what the hell are they thinking?” she said.
Lemon chose not to respond to this thought, but to rather keep harping on Cupp fumbling a statistic.
“Is it fair to say this because I’m not a mommy, but is it mommy brain?” he asked his guest.
Cupp appeared to be taken aback by the remark, resulting in a brief moment of awkward silence.
“No, Don, I just forgot what I was going to say,” she said.
“I forget what I’m talking about all the time,” Lemon said, soon breaking into laughter.
Pregnancy and Mommy Brain is real but for the love of everything in the world you do not do this, especially on national TV. Jokingly with my best friends and Mother, but anyone else? NOPE!
CNN's Don Lemon is suggesting SE Cupp spewing incorrect information might be related to "mommy brain."
She goes full Karen on him because she is just someone who just says stupid stuff on TV for money. pic.twitter.com/WOOIYJo8fq

Sources told The New York Post that Lemon went ballistic on co-host Kaitlan Collins after the December 8 show because she interrupted him.
That’s the first weirdness between Lemon and Collins. On February 7, Lemon waved off a commercial break after Collins interviewed new Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer. Lemon went on his soapbox over Comer’s comments. Co-host Poppi Harlow pointed out that Collins fact-checked Comer “real time.” Lemon didn’t care and only gave Collins praise quickly in a sentence that demeaned Comer.
Don Lemon at it again.
This time upset after Kaitlan Collins interviews GOP Rep. James Comer regarding the hearings on the Twitter Files and silencing of the NY Post.
Lemon was incensed enough to block the cue to commercial. He railed about truth without making any correction

On December 1, Lemon said men’s sports are “more interesting to watch” than women’s sports. (I mean, he’s not wrong here, but tone matters.)
This might be the most honest thing Don Lemon has ever said, men’s soccer players deserve more money than women’s soccer players because way more people in the world, the world, care about men’s sports. It’s basic capitalism. pic.twitter.com/WgP6VzaCBs

to the full extent allowed by law.
There are a hundred things to not like or disagree about Haley; age is not one of them.
Don checks all the boxes, and none in a good way.
CNN was looking for a qualified talk-show host, but they got a Lemon. And if Republicans pick Nikki Haley we will get a lemon.
well, like the handful of people who might actually care, am wondering how the hell donna limone would even know?–talk about pfc oblivious
Based on the old definition of a “woman in her prime”, no woman so described can constitutionally run for President.
It’s truly stupid of Lemon to think that “in one’s prime” is the same age for any context. A female is “in her prime” for gymnastics, tennis, childbearing, and organizational management at very different ages.
The problem is, Over-the-Hill Lemon is no longer in his prime.
And when he was in his prime, he was not especially good at anything.
Obviously, Lemon thinks he(?) is in his prime as a woman…
Maybe Don doesn’t know what a woman in her prime is because as a man, he has yet to be in his.
Nanny Peelosi never got to be considered “prime”.
Neither did Fetterman.
Why would he be fired, or even be concerned about being fired? He said it about a Republican.
Everyone knows you can say anything you want about a Republican without being an -ist or -phobe.
It’s only when you say something critical of a Democrat that your morals are in question.
Interesting Haley wants testing on 75 and above and President Trump is 76?
Yeah he’s pretty old.
He’s also related to you. He’s a healthyguy.
I disowned him after 2020
How does Lemon know Haley is a “woman”? Is he a biologist!?!
Feminist or masculinist?
DIEversity (e.g. racism, sexism, ageism, and other class-based bigotry)
Less attractive to men, is what he means. That means no male voting support.
Women’s minds are not particularly beautiful, so I’d go on the looks.
He’s just the messenger, and getting nagged for it, tellingly.
Considering how many women D politicians appear to have been pummeled by an ugly stick, I don’t think Lemonhead really ought to go there.
In my life I have never, ever heard a single male mention physical appearance as a metric for voting. Females, on the other hand….
It’s not like we’re voting for them, but Hochhul, Pelosi, Feinstein, Stabenow, and Katie Porter have all caught some serious mudballs recently right here in the comment section.
Is there a USDA “prime” rating for citrus, like for meats; you know juicy, tasty meat on display to buy and consume?
Don Lemon’s talking like he would know.
So what are the implications of Bi-den as a man?
Let’s see: drooling, doesn’t know where he is, thinks he has three degrees, and copies other politician’s speeches word for word. Looks like DEATH sucking an onion, and has a penchant for feeling little girls in a disgusting manner. And those are his Good points.
Basically a washed up sleazy politician who belongs in a Nursing Home. Yeeeuck!
He just wants to date her.
Ha! FIRST to quote AOC on that one!!!!
