Many greeted the news that former CNN diva Don Lemon would be hosting a show on the X platform with great enthusiasm after his absence from the media but Megyn Kelly was not one of them.
The conservative journalist and podcaster savaged Lemon over his grand return, devoting a segment to a man whom she has frequently criticized on Thursday’s edition of “The Megyn Kelly Show” on Sirius XM.
“Our old pal Don Lemon has resurfaced or is about to resurfaced…resurface,” Kelly began. “And I realize that the magnanimous move is to say ‘good for Don, he got canceled off of CNN and now he’s reinventing himself on Twitter.”

“Well, pfffft, that’s not what I say,” she continued.
“I think he’s disgusting. He hates America. He hates Republicans and I’m not looking forward to his voice reemerging other than to mock it which I 100 percent plan to do,” Kelly said, adding that mocking the host is the “only silver lining” to his reemergence.
“So he’s going out on X, alright, it’s like ‘Oh great, Tucker did it on X and Tucker and I got fired on the same day so I’ll go out on X,’ and Don Lemon comes out…”, as she read his Wednesday announcement.
“I’ve heard you… and today I am back bigger, bolder, freer! My new media company’s first project is The Don Lemon Show. It will be available to everyone, easily, whenever and wherever you want it, streaming on the platforms where the conversations are happening,” the fired CNN personality stated.
“I’ve heard you,” Kelly mockingly said. “Like the masses are clamoring ‘Where’s Don?'”
“Honestly, and like there are people welcoming Don back to the national conversation and for those people and others, I just have a little reminder for you of who Don Lemon is and why we can’t stand him, here you go,” she offered, as footage rolled of Lemon’s CNN days of mocking Republicans, Donald J. Trump and vaccine skeptics, with former BFF Chris Cuomo and Lincoln Project slimeball Rick Wilson.
“He’s shown us who he is, believe him,” Kelly said after the panel had a round of laughs at Lemon’s expense. “This is not someone who I’m rooting for. I’m not saying he should never be allowed to speak again. I’m just saying I don’t have to personally cheerlead it or think it’s a good thing or recognize that this is like some sort of important voice in the conversation and yay for Elon for making it possible for him to come back.”
“He’s a pr**k!” Kelly emphatically stated. “And he f**kin’ hates Republicans.”
Don Lemon truly HATES the right half of the country,” she added. “Hates! And would love to see almost all of them canceled who voted for Trump so no, I’m not rooting for him in any way, shape or form.”
The mercurial Lemon had been dancing on thin ice and repeatedly rubbed then-CNN boss Chris Licht the wrong way with the final straw reportedly being his racist remarks during a segment with GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.
The contentious “CNN This Morning” segment led to Licht pulling the plug on his star only weeks before he himself was fired after an internal mutiny over his decision to feature a town hall with former President Donald J. Trump.
