CNN’s Lemon Regrets Comment About Women’s “Prime” Age

From a Washington Post story by Jeremy Barr and Sarah Ellison headlined “CNN’s Don Lemon says he regrets comment about women’s ‘prime’ age”:

In the latest setback for CNN’s struggling new morning show, Don Lemon said he regretted his “inartful and irrelevant” comment on Thursday’s show about when women are “in their prime” that drew a quick backlash from colleagues and viewers.

Lemon, who left a prime-time perch to co-host the new program, made the comment in response to Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley’s call for “mandatory mental competency tests for politicians over 75 years old” — a veiled reference, many assumed, to President Biden, 80, and former president Donald Trump, 76.
