(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — CNN anchor Don Lemon said that more women should be running for president in the U.S. because they are smarter than men.

“Women are the smartest of the sexes and they always have been,” Lemon told TMZ when asked if a women would be a better presidential candidate because she is less likely to have a sketchy past.

“We would be a whole lot better off if women were running things — more things in this country — and I mean that,” he said in the off-the-cuff video shot at Los Angeles International Airport.
