Just because she's not a witch, doesn't mean that Christine O'Donnell, the former U.S. Senate candidate from Delaware, is a good interviewee. Last night during “Piers Morgan Tonight” on CNN, O'Donnell was pressed to talk about her views on same-sex marriage.
O’Donnell, popular with Tea Party voters, drew scrutiny during her campaign for past statements that she had allegedly dabbled in witchcraft, and also for referring to homosexuality as an “identity disorder.”
She is now promoting her new book, “Troublemaker: Let's Do What it Takes to Make America Great Again.”
But last night, O'Donnell didn't want to have any part of a discussion on gay issues, even after continued prodding from the host.
“Why are you being so weird about this?” Morgan finally asked.
“I'm not being weird about this, Piers,” O'Donnell responded. “I'm not running for office, I'm not promoting a legislative agenda — I'm promoting policies that are laid out in the book that are mostly fiscal, mostly constitutional."
Eventually O'Donnell became so frustrated with the repeated questioning that she walked out of the interview early.
