Well Don Lemon made one of his news segments extremely awkward.
While discussing Nikki Haley and her upcoming presidential bid, Lemon took it upon himself to define when a woman is in her “prime.”
Lemon said, “Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime, sorry. A woman is considered in her prime in her 20’s, 30’s, and maybe 40’s.”
The two other female hosts looked completely dumbfounded as to what exactly Lemon was talking about.
CNN’s Poppy Harlow then asked, “Are you talking about prime for like child bearing?”
Lemon continued to spiral: “Google it! It says women are in their prime in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40,s, and I’m just saying Nikki Haley should be careful about saying politicians are not in their prime and they need to be in their prime when they serve.”
The discussion comes as Nikki Haley, the former UN Ambassador and former Governor of South Carolina, declared for the Presidential primary in a video early Tuesday morning. She and Trump are the only two that have formally announced their GOP candidacy for 2024.
