She calls Piers Morgan ‘rude’ and leaves the show infuriated — or was she just late to a witch circle?

Christine O’Donnell never seems to disappoint as a guest on any TV program.  But last night, Piers Morgan hit all the wrong buttons when asking her for her stance on gay marriage — forcing a frustrated Christine to walk off his show, Piers Morgan Tonight!

“Right now, I’m curious about whether you support gay marriage,” the outspoken Piers Morgan asked.  “You’re borderline being a little bit rude,” Christine replied, who while campaigning for the 2010 Senate race advocated that homosexuality is a disease that can be ‘cured.’  She then proclaims that she only wants to talk about what is in her book, though admitting that she does talk about the topic in her book.  “I do talk about my religious beliefs.”

Yet Christine doesn’t believe that the topic is an issue that is being debated today.  “It is obviously, as you know with Michelle Bachman’s views, a highly political contentious issue,” Piers is forced to remind her.  Yet the former tea-party candidate, who also has a lesbian sister, still refuses to focus on the controversial topic.  “It’s not a topic that I choose to embrace…right now what I’m trying to do is to promote a book that I hope to be a very inspirational story to people who are part of the tea party movement so we can bring America back to the second American revolution.”

Piers finally gets down to the issue at hand.  “Why are you being so weird about this?  I don’t think I’m being rude, I think I’m being rather charming and respectful.”  With that being said, Christine abruptly leaves the interview saying that she had better things to do.  “I’m supposed to be speaking at a Republican Women’s Club at 6 o’clock and I chose to be a little late for that, not to endure a rude talk show host.”

A baffled Piers goes on to respectfully promote Christine’s new book.  “The book is called Trouble Maker.  I think we now know why it’s called Trouble Maker…”
