Christine O’Donnell Walks Out Off Piers Morgan Interview

Christine O'Donnell


Christine O'Donnell, the Delaware conservative activist who shockingly won the Republican nomination for Senate in 2010 -- and then lost what had looked like a safe seat by a double-digit margin -- walked out of taping an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan on Wednesday.

O'Donnell is currently promoting her book,Troublemaker: Let's Do What It Takes to Make America Great Again, mostly through appearances on friendly conservative media.

In this case, she apparently reacted badly to Morgan's questions about her views on sexuality. As the public learned in the 2010 campaign, she is a vociferous abstinence campaigner, and has even gone so far as to speak out vigorously against masturbation. Morgan apparently couldn't resist prodding her on this, nor could he resist raising her infamous anecdote about having once dabbled in witchcraft. The final straw, however, appears to have been a question about her opposition to gay marriage.

Early Wednesday evening, Morgan tweeted:

BREAKING: Christine O'Donnell just walked out of my interview for @PiersTonight in disgust at my 'rudeness'. Tune in at 9pm ET.

Morgan followed that up with:

Ms O'Donnell wasn't happy about me quizzing her re views on withcraft and sex. But really flipped at gay marriage Qs. Ripped mike and fled.

And finally, this reflection on how this never happened to him before -- with another teaser to watch it tonight:

My first ever walk-out in 25 years of interviews. I guess viewers can decide if I was 'rude' or not tonight at 9pm ET. #CNN

Maybe she should get back in the kitchen? You know...making her husband a sandwich! That's what good Republican wives do...so I was told...
