Don Lemon urges Fetterman to have his doctors answer media questions before the election and receives no response

CNN anchor Don Lemon pressured John Fetterman over whether he would allow his doctors to answer media questions ahead of the election, but he offered no answer to the press.

Lemon had the Democratic nominee for one of two seats in the Pennsylvania US Senate on his show Monday and asked him a tough question about his health. Fetterman suffered a stroke but insists he is healthy enough to fight, despite often mixing up words and misunderstanding questions put to him.

“Listen, we’ve heard a little bit about your doctor, but we haven’t heard much. You’re asking voters to take your word for it that your health is good without the whole story, so iIn the interest of full transparency for voters, do you think it would help if your doctors briefed the press before election night?” Lemon asked.

“I think we’ve been pretty transparent, you know, our doctors just made it very clear that they’re here, that we’re capable of it and operational,” Fetterman replied.

“And from my point of view, um, you know, we’ve also been very transparent about appearing at a debate and very transparent about events in front of thousands and thousands of Pennsylvanians for months and it was me again, it wasn’t a secret, that I would miss some words, I would put some words together,” he continued.

“And since we were very clear in the debate and I used subtitles during this interview, it’s all true,” he added. “I think we’ve been very transparent about giving all voters a chance to make their choice.”

Questions about Fetterman’s health rose to prominence when Fetterman and Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz were debating in a public forum and the Democratic candidate had difficulty answering some questions competently. In an embarrassing moment, he was asked to make conflicting statements about fracking and he simply reiterated that he supports the practice.

The Pennsylvania election will help determine whether the Democrats will retain their tenuous hold on the US Senate or whether the Republicans will take control.

Here’s the Lemon interview with Fetterman:
