CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” Wednesday when asked about her views on sexual
abstinence and gay marriage.”I’m not talking about policies. I’m not running for office,” O’Donnell said.
“Ask Michele Bachmann what she thinks.”
Morgan asked her why she was being “weird” about answering questions on her own
statements, as well as issues she addresses in her new book, “Troublemaker,”
O’Donnell fired back, saying she only wanted to talk about tea party principles
outlined in her book.
“That’s why I agreed to come on your show. That’s what I want to talk about,”
O’Donnell said. “I’m not being weird. You’re being a little rude.”
O’Donnell made national headlines in 2010 when she denied in a TV ad that she
was a witch, responding to comments she made a decade earlier on a TV show
saying she had “dabbled in witchcraft.”
During her Senate campaign, O’Donnell ran as a tea party darling and social
conservative. She said she hopes her new book will be an inspirational tool to
the grassroots conservative movement.
But when asked about issues from her book and her campaign Wednesday,
O’Donnell walked away from the interview, upset that Morgan wasn’t not talking
about the things she wished to address.
“Don’t you think as a host, if I say this is what I want to talk about,
that’s what we should address?” she asked Morgan.
When Morgan said “no,” O’Donnell began to take off her microphone and said
she had turned down another interview for this appearance.
“I was supposed to be speaking at the Republican Women’s Club at 6, and I
chose to be a little late for that,” she said. “Not to endure a rude talk show
host, but to talk to you about my book and the issues I address in my book.”
Earlier in the interview, O’Donnell answered questions about her Senate
campaign, saying she had made mistakes and caused “self-inflicted wounds.”
She argued that during the midterms she had been unfairly treated by the GOP,
which she said failed to defend her from both Republican and Democratic
Most notably, O’Donnell said she regretted listening to the campaign
consultants who advised her on making the famous “I’m not a witch” TV ad.
“I listened to the so-called experts who have been losing election after
election.” O’Donnell said. “The experts aren’t always experts.”
While the former Senate candidate didn’t indicate whether she was vying for a
political comeback, O’Donnell said she wants to “stay in the political arena”
and talk about the issues.
She also warned that the country was heading toward calamity.
“The reality is our country is going bankrupt. Our country is on the brink of
collapsing,” O’Donnell said. “This is a very grave situation, unlike any time.
We need real solutions.”
O’Donnell began to express discomfort when Morgan turned the conversation to
her previous comments on sexual abstinence from a 1996 interview she gave to
MTV. At the time, O’Donnell was an advocate for abstinence and had founded a
pro-abstinence group. She also discouraged masturbation.
When Morgan asked her if she still held those views, O’Donnell said she was a
practicing Catholic and supports what the Church teaches but would not do the
same MTV interview today.
Morgan pressed her again, asking if she was still a supporter of
“Are you the pro-masturbation talk show host?” O’Donnell asked, jokingly.
“Why, yes,” Morgan replied in jest.
O’Donnell then tried to change the subject to the political principles from
her book, and when Morgan continued to ask about her comments on sex, O’Donnell
began to argue the host was being rude.
