Don Lemon and his fiancé are looking to start a family
[quote] “Yes, I’m thinking about starting a family,” Lemon said during a virtual appearance on “The Tamron Hall Show,” adding that he and Malone will wait until they’re married to take that next step. They’ve postponed their nuptials due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the CNN talking head, they’re considering several options when it comes to their potential brood.
[quote] “So we’re thinking about, do we want to adopt, do we want to go through surrogacy, how we want to do it,” Lemon said. “Tim is definitely going to have to be the one to have the kid because he’s younger. His body will bounce back faster.”

Oh please. Are you aware of just how many gay singles and couples became fathers in their 40's or even 50's? Surrogacy is all about cash baby.... If some 40 year old woman and her nearly 50 year old husband can hire a surrogate, or worse parents in their 60's whose son died young unexpectedly, but they want grandchildren can hire a womb, why could gay men be any different.

Don Lemon was a "respectable" bougie Black guy who lived for being not like other Black guys. He would bash people from the ghetto, Black activists, the Ferguson riots, Black Lives Matter and tons of Black celebs yet kiss up to white people. He was also skeptical towards Obama. He seemed like he was a closet Republican for years.
It wasn't until Trump came into office that Lemon became "woke" and starting bashing Republicans. Which shows he's all about the money and does whatever CNN pays him to do. Either way he's kind of a joke to journalism since he can't be impartial and remove emotion from his reporting.
Don Lemon should play Tom from The Boondocks actually if they make a live action remake.

Many gay couples like to joke about having babies as if one of them actually will become pregnant. It is of course rubbish, but is right up there with gays calling each other by female pronouns and so forth.
If the comment about body bouncing back was left out it could have meant younger partner would be donating sperm.

My issue is not who they date. Sexual racial preferences or whatever are something that's personal. My issue is the hypocrisy of people like Don Lemon. He spent years bashing lower-class and uneducated Black people and generalizing the Black community as bad. Now, if he was hosting discussions on fixing problems within the Black community in a Black space then that would be fine. But he did this on national TV on CNN for a majority-white audience and seemed to fulfill the stereotypical "good, safe Black man" who is not like the other Blacks. It's not that difference from people like Candace Owens and Stacey Dash though he never went as far as they did in terms of their deplorableness or homophobia obviously being a gay man. But still he only became pro-Black and "woke" after Trump was elected and CNN told him to get with it. I don't find him sincere at all because of the 180 turn he pulled.

Don is 55. Not one is this kid going to grow up with two dads, but at his high school graduation, one of his dads will be 75 years old. Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. Most people still need their parents into their 20s, 30s, and 40s. To have a kid at that age, gay or straight, is pretty selfish.
But on the other hand, if he kicks the bucket, the partner is young enough to finish raising the kid. And the partner will get Don's CNN money.

I have a relative who is on disability. Doesn't have to work and gets a check each month. It's not as good as working, but at least she gets to stay home with the kids, and now doesn't have to pay for child care. BUT...each kid is also receiving a disability-check even though neither has any health problems. Because the mom gets a payout, the dependent kids do, too. Her spouse has a solid job with great pay and benefits.

There was an older male member of Congress (senator?) several years back though far from poor (in fact rather well off) whose children were getting SS payments because he "retired" as in collecting SS, so his young dependent children were eligible.
Situation was as another poster described IIRC, older man married a younger woman and began breeding children.
At time story made news media and congressman in question defended the situation and squashed any ideas of SS payments to children being means tested.
Again no small number of children of elder fathers or mothers are receiving payments. If they do nothing else but put that money into investments over a ten or whatever year period will have a sizable nest egg when they age out of SS payments.

Same reasons why tons of other women (and now men) who never worked a day in their lives and or for not very long get SS spousal benefits, this regardless of actual financial need. It just is how program is set up.....

Plus Lemon's chatter about it is rather insufferable just like the nauseating "Bro, I love you" and "D. Lemon" bullshit between him and Cuomo on CNN. There is no need for two co-workers to say "I love you" every goddamn night. Their cross-chatter goes on way too long. Their extended love-fest all the time is sickening, inappropriate and cringeworthy.
Zip it, Lemon. STFU and tell Cuomo the same. I am a MSNBC and Lawrence O'Donnell fan so I'm not tuned into CNN all that much. But even the few times I've seen it, it just makes me gag. If you want to see how cross-chatter is done well. Tune into the pass-off between Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell. It's just enough.
