Nikki Haley gets revenge with dig on Don Lemon after CNN cans him

While there was plenty of celebration on the right over Don Lemon being fired Monday by CNN, few had more reason to celebrate than 2024 Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley.

The former U.N. ambassador was a recent target of the smarmy 57-year-old liberal when he claimed Haley, 51, was past “her prime.”

“A great day for women everywhere. Now, let’s get men out of women’s sports,” Haley tweeted Monday, adding a “Hold my beer” meme featuring lemonade and the hashtag “#StillInMyPrime.”

Haley followed that tweet up with a bit of advice to women, “To women everywhere, don’t ever let anyone tell you you’re past your prime.”

Back in February, Lemon was responding to Haley’s calling for competency tests for politicians older than 75 during her presidential announcement speech — this would include President Biden and former President Donald Trump.

“Sorry,” Lemon said. “When a woman is in their prime, in 20s and 30s and maybe 40s…”

“Prime for what?” co-host Poppy Harlow demanded.

“It depends. It’s just like, prime,” Lemon stammered, as it began to dawn on him that he just said something stupid. “If you look it up. If you Google when is a woman in her prime, it’ll say 20s, 30s, 40s.”

Haley returned fire at the time in a tweet, “Liberals can’t stand the idea of having competency tests for older politicians to make sure they can do the job. BTW it’s always the liberals who are the most sexist.”

As for Lemon’s firing, he went out swinging but much like his efforts over the years, the openly gay TV personality’s claims were quickly disputed by CNN.

“I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly,” Lemon said in a statement he tweeted. “At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network.”

CNN Communications countered in a tweet: “Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter.”

Here are but a few responses to the story from Twitter:
