Don Lemon has come under fire from both inside and out of the White House following his controversial remarks about Nikki Haley. CNN staff members have been leading the path for Don Lemon’s expulsion with their demands for Don Lemon to be fired, calling Don Lemon’s remarks sexist. The White House is also joining in, taking a swipe at Lemon’s statements. Now the clock is ticking.
Don Lemon appears to be feeling the squeeze and it looks like his days at CNN could be coming to an end. The drama is only intensifying with every passing day, leaving many wondering whether Don Lemon will ultimately get the boot or hold onto his post at CNN? This ‘Game Over’ unfolding before us is an unprecedented clash of liberal hypocrisy and woke cancel culture.
Lemon was noticeably missing this morning from “CNN THIS MORNING,” as rumors flew around that he had been benched by the network. Lemon made a sexist remark towards Nikki Haley last week, which didn’t sit well with either his network or his audience.
What goes around comes around, and Lemon is feeling the wrath of Cancel Culture due to his controversial comments. Conversations about Lemon’s future are reportedly happening at high levels within the network, and it’ll be interesting to see if Lemon makes a triumphant return or he gets squeezed out.
According to Haley, who announced her candidacy for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination recently, politicians over a certain age should be tested for mental competency. This is what Lemon reacted to:
Afterward, CNN’s Don Lemon offered Haley some advice, saying she had reached the “end of her prime” since she wasn’t in her 20s, 30s, and 40s.
Licht is “pissed” at Lemon’s “unforced error,” a CNN insider told Fox News Digital, adding that he is “more sensitive” to how staff react to Lemon’s comments.
CNN Insiders told The Post that Lemon should step down. “He has got to go. He is hurting the brand. Women aren’t even focused on the sexism — it’s the damage to CNN.”
Similarly, a CNN source spoke in reference to Lemon’s headline-grabbing gaffes, “Everyone is pissed about it. It makes us the story, and it hurts us.”
Lemon’s remarks became the but of jokes in the White House press room on Friday when talk of a “woman’s prime” became a question from the Press Corps.
Ahead of his disappearance from CNN, Lemon apologized on Twitter.
He Tweeted, “The reference I made to a woman’s ‘prime’ this morning was inartful and irrelevant, as colleagues and loved ones have pointed out, and I regret it. A woman’s age doesn’t define her either personally or professionally. I have countless women in my life who prove that every day.”
Haley mocked him, tweeting: “To be clear, I am NOT calling for competency tests for sexist middle-aged CNN anchors; only for people who make our laws and are 75+.”
Lemon, according to a source, decided to start Presidents’ Day Weekend early by visiting Miami for a pre-planned vacation. He is expected to return to flying on Tuesday, according to another source.
Following his bizarre plea to CNN colleagues on Friday morning, Lemon was pictured emerging from South Beach surf with a smile on his face and laying on a chaise lounge.
It is time for Don Lemon to pack his belongings and leave CNN. After his controversial remarks about Nikki Haley, Lemon has been met with a huge backlash from the CNN staff and the White House alike. It appears that he is feeling the heat of this moment as every day brings more drama and news looms as to whether or not he will get canceled by CNN. It appears that it is only a matter of time before Lemon’s tenure at CNN comes to an end, as the public can no longer put up with his hypocrisy and sexist comments – It’s time to cancel Don Lemon at long last!
