Christine O’Donnell storms out of Piers Morgan interview over ‘rude’ treatment

Former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell walked off CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” Wednesday night after being grilled on her thoughts about masturbation and same-sex marriage.

The interview opened with clips of O’Donnell’s appearances on MTV’s “Sex in the 90′s.” Asked about the appearances, O’Donnell stood by her statements on sex, but denied that they remain relevant.

“Well they’re not [relevant],” O’Donnell said, “because there aren’t laws outlawing sex, and if there are they should be on the local level, as I make the case for local control as opposed to federal control.”

Morgan then asked, “are you still a supporter of total abstinence?” O’Donnell responded: “are you the pro-masturbation talk show host?”

The host pressed further, asking, “have you committed lust in your heart?” O’Donnell laughingly said, “lets not even go there.”

The interview grew tense when O’Donnell was pressed to explain her position on gay marriage. After unsuccessful attempts by Morgan to get an answer, O’Donnell said, “I’m not running for office, ask Michele Bachmann what she thinks.”

Morgan inquired further, asking, “Why are you being so weird about this?”

“I’m not being weird, you’re being a little rude,” O’Donnell retorted. “Don’t you think as a host, when I say ‘this is what I want to talk about’ that’s what we should address?” Morgan replied, “Not really, no. You’re a politician.”

O’Donnell then announced that she was leaving the studio, citing an appearance at the Republican Women’s Club. “I chose to be a little late for that, not to endure a rude talk show host,” she said.

    So, just why are people so concerned with what (or who) the neighbors are doing in the privacy of their bedrooms? Are they envious? Curious? Angry? Sex between two (or three or ten) consenting adults is nobody’s damned buisness, and even suggesting federal, state, or local jurisdiction over a bodily function is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overreaching.

    Well in part this is O’Donnell’s own fault for agreeing for having anything to do with Cranks’ News Nitwits in the first place… CNN has rarely proved (except maybe a few of their field reporters) it has any professional journalists working for them…

    BMC called Piers ‘classless‘ which I personally feel is being far to kind towards Piers but does show that BMC does have some class himself…

    Piers is a classless excuse for journalist. Why don’t these lib talkies take the opportunity to ask questions about issues important to the majority of us. Have you committed lust in your heart? Cmon Piers! Any high-schooler could do better!
