Christine O’Donnell Walks Out On Piers Morgan Interview After Gay Marriage Query
Former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell walked out of an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan today after the host asked her a question on gay marriage. “My first ever walk-out in 25 years of interviews,” Morgan said on Twitter after the exchange, which airs on Piers Morgan Tonight at 9 p.m. O’Donnell, who is promoting her new book, became uncomfortable when Morgan asked questions about politics. “You’re borderline being a little bit rude,” she tells Piers Morgan. “I think I’m being rather charming and respectful,” says Morgan.
On gay marriage, O’Donnell said she’s not running for office, and therefore would not address the issue. “Why are you being so weird?” Morgan asks. “I’m asking you questions based on your own public statements…it’s hardly rude to ask you that, surely.” She clearly didn’t agree, claiming that she was “being pulled away” from the interview by an off-camera handler.
