In spite of Kelly’s obvious skepticism, she still highlighted some areas for improvement. “Day 1 of Don Lemon’s ‘formal training’ on how not to be a misogynist,” she wrote on Twitter. “Let’s help!” “Women are not damaged goods when they hit 40,” Kelly wrote in an obvious reference to Lemon’s sexist comments about women last week. She then invoked a comment from Lemon from 2014, wherein he suggested a woman who had credibly accused Bill Cosby of rape should have bitten off the disgraced comedian’s genitals. “Rape victims don’t need your lecture on how to respond to their rape,” Kelly wrote.
What a joke. “Formal training” on what? How to be a decent human being? Good luck. https://t.co/g6py4zC9aB— Megyn Kelly (@megynkelly) February 21, 2023
From there, the podcaster and former cable and broadcast news anchor reminded her followers Lemon asked a colleague if she was suffering from “mommy brain” last year when she lost her train of thought. “Women forgetting a fact do not have ‘mommy brain,’” Kelly reminded Lemon. “They’re, um… human.” Lemon of course claimed last week women are over the hill, or as he put it, no longer in their “prime,” once they hit the age of 50. Kelly concluded her tips for the embattled CNN star by making several references the ongoing backlash surrounding the comments. She also invoked reported friction between Lemon and his female “CNN This Morning” co-host Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins.
Day 1 of Don Lemon’s “formal training” on how not to be a misogynist. Let’s help! 1. Women are not damaged goods when they hit 40. 2. Rape victims don’t need your lecture on how to respond to their rape. 3. Women forgetting a fact do not have “mommy brain.” They’re, um… human.— Megyn Kelly (@megynkelly) February 21, 2023
4. Screaming at your female co-anchor bc she interrupted you to the point where she runs away is considered rude & unprofessional. 5. 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 douchebaggery.— Megyn Kelly (@megynkelly) February 21, 2023
The irony of Lemon commenting on anyone being out of their relative prime is still laughter-inducing five days into the most embarrassing week of a career filled with lowlights. Lemon co-hosts CNN’s lowest-rated morning show in a decade and a mere four months ago owned one of the most-coveted time slots in all of cable news.

6. Defending sexism w/ “some of my best friends are” (in the group I attacked) wld not excuse racism & it doesn’t excuse sexism. 7. “I’m going to continue to be me” is not an acceptable plan when “me” loathes women. 8. When under fire for misogyny, try to at least look/act sorry— Megyn Kelly (@megynkelly) February 21, 2023
