Don Lemon Regrets Saying Women 50+ Have Past Their 'Prime'

Don Lemon Says He Regrets Stating Women 50 & Older Cannot Be In Their ‘Prime’ (Video)

Don Lemon is now apologizing for comments he made on CNN This Morning earlier today. According to TMZ, the television journalist criticized presidential candidate Nikki Haley. But further than that, declared that women above 50 cannot be in their “prime.”

Don Lemon Shared The Commentary Early On Thursday

Don Lemon and his co-host were discussing presidential candidate Nikki Haley, live on air. Haley has received a lot of recent publicity for stating that “mental competency tests” should be ordered for older politicians over the age of 75, as reported by The Hill.

Lemon shared his thoughts on the matter. And explained that the “talk about age,” initiated by Haley, has made him “uncomfortable.” Then, he went on to unabashedly say that Haley, herself, isn’t in her prime.

She says something that politicians are not in their prime, Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime — sorry — when a woman is considered to be in her prime, in her 20s, and 30s, and maybe 40s… If you Google, ‘when is a woman in her prime?’ it will say 20s, 30s, and 40s…

Lemon went on to say doesn’t necessarily “agree.” But feels Haley should “be careful about saying politicians aren’t in their prime.”

The journalist’s co-hosts, who are both women, seemed visually bothered by Lemon’s comments. He seemed to notice and asked them, as well as viewers, not to “shoot the messenger.”

He repeatedly referenced Google as the source of his information.
