Embattled Don Lemon Will Return To “CNN This Morning” On Wednesday

Embattled CNN host Don Lemon will return to his morning show on Wednesday following an extended absence amid his controversial remarks about Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, according to a memo from CNN boss Chris Licht to staff. 

“I sat down with Don and had a frank and meaningful conversation. He has agreed to participate in formal training, as well as continue to listen and learn. We take this situation very seriously,” Licht told staff in the memo obtained by Fox News Digital late Monday. 

“It is important to me that CNN balances accountability with fostering a culture in which people can own, learn and grow from their mistakes. To that end, Don will return to CNN This Morning on Wednesday,” Licht added.

It is unclear whether Lemon will address the controversy to his viewers upon his on-air return. 

A spokesperson for CNN declined to comment. 

During Thursday’s broadcast of “CNN This Morning,” Lemon knocked Haley for supporting “mandatory mental competency tests” for politicians over 75 years old, accusing her of being past her “prime.”

Lemon cited “Google” to argue that 51-year-old Haley will have an uphill battle in winning the presidency since women are only in their prime during their “20s, 30s and 40s.” 

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