Don Lemon Slams Nikki Haley, Claims She’s No Longer ‘in Her Prime’

CNN’s Don Lemon reportedly stated Thursday that former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who recently declared her presidential run in 2024, was not in her “prime,” and that any talk of her age made him “uncomfortable.”

“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 something if not in their prime. Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime, sorry. A woman is considered to be in their prime in 20s and 30s and maybe 40s,” Lemon said.

When co-host Poppy Harlow asked what he meant by “prime,” Lemon responded it wasn’t according to him.

“It depends, just like prime, if you look it up. If you Google it, when is a woman in her prime, it’ll say 20s, 30s and 40s. I’m not saying I agree with that. I think she has to be careful about saying that, you know, politicians are in their prime.” he said.

The panelists were addressing President Biden’s age as he approaches 2024, as well as Haley, who on Wednesday advocated for a worldwide law requiring politicians over 75 to face mental competence tests before running for office.

“I’m just saying what the facts are. Google it. Everybody at home, when is woman in her prime, it says 20s, 30s and 40s. And I’m just saying should be careful about saying that politicians are not in their prime and they need to be in prime when they serve. Because she wouldn’t be in her prime according to,” Lemon continued.

Lemon noted that Haley must be careful not to alienate elderly voters.

Co-host Kaitlan Collins suggested that age is a legitimate worry, noting that voters are concerned about Biden’s and former President Donald Trump’s ages.
