Don Lemon Removed from CNN Morning Show to Start the Week

After Don Lemon made sexist remarks on Thursday about presidential candidate and former ambassador to the UN under Trump Nikki Haley, Don Lemon was out from his CNN morning show host chair on Friday. Now, sources say that Lemon will be removed from show on Monday, too.

Sources told Confinder that a new schedule is in place per CNN management, and Lemon is not on it. Instead, Poppy Harlow will be accompanied by Sara Sidner and Kaitlan Collins, who is in Poland, the Daily Beast reports.

“There are ongoing conversations about Don’s future,” a source told Confider. “He is a constant distraction.”

Lemon apologized to CNN staffers over the remarks on Friday after having said “Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime, sorry,” Lemon said. This in response to Haley calling for politicians over the age of 75 to take “mental competency tests.” CNN CEO Christ Licht had said he was “disappointed” by the remarks.

On Friday, he said “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.”

“His remarks were upsetting, unacceptable, and unfair to his co-hosts, and ultimately a huge distraction to the great work of this organization,” Licht said on a Friday editorial call.

Lemon’s future with the network is not clear. In September, Lemon was pulled from his prime time spot and moved into a morning spot that replaced New Day.
