After CNN decided not to terminate Don Lemon for his sexist remarks directed towards Republican Nikki Haley, Megyn Kelly provided a list of recommendations for his "re-education."
Following Lemon's insinuation that 51-year-old Nikki Haley was no longer in her "prime," CNN reprimanded him internally and took him off the air. However, the network opted not to dismiss him from his position. Instead, Lemon was permitted to resume co-anchoring "CNN This Morning," which he shares with two female hosts, on Wednesday only after he consented to undergo "formal training." Presumably, this training was to educate him on how to refrain from making derogatory comments toward women.
During her SiriusXM program, Kelly conversed with Glenn Beck and presented a list of eight proposals for the type of "formal training" that Don Lemon ought to receive to learn how not to exhibit misogyny.
The list, which had Beck in stitches, included:
"Women are not damaged goods when they hit 40."
"Rape victims don't need your lecture on how to respond to their rape."
"Women forgetting a fact do not have 'mommy brain.' They're — human."
"Screaming at your female co-anchor because she interrupted you to the point where she runs away is considered rude and unprofessional."
"Postponing an ad break to mansplain to said co-anchor in front of the audience how to properly conduct an interview is an act of, and this is a technical term, douchebaggery."
"Defending sexism with 'some of my best friends are women' would not excuse racism — 'some of my best friends are black — and it doesn't excuse sexism."
"'I’m going to continue to be me' ... is not an acceptable plan when 'me' is a guy that clearly loathes women."
"When under fire for misogyny, try to at least look and act sorry."
Kelly's list referred to several other infamous incidents and comments that involved women made by Lemon in the past.
For example, the second item pertains to Lemon's 2014 interview with a Bill Cosby rape victim, and the third concerns something he said to a CNN colleague just last year.
The sixth and seventh items concern Lemon's comments during an editorial call with his CNN colleagues last Friday, while the fourth and fifth items pertain to recent alleged incidents. Kelly's final point addresses Lemon's excursion to Miami amidst the controversy.
According to Kelly, the only reason Lemon could go on a brief vacation despite the uproar over his comments is that he is a "black, gay male who is uncancellable at CNN."
Kelly commented, "That's the third thing — black, gay, liberal man, who gets the protections that the rest of America doesn't get."
