ARLINGTON, Va. – The day after her much-publicized appearance – or disappearance – on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Christine O’Donnell was fired up as she spoke to a Northern Virginia Tea Party gathering and signed copies of her new book, “Trouble Maker: Let’s Do What It Takes to Make America Great Again.”
Morgan began his interview Wednesday by telling the former Delaware candidate for the U.S. Senate that she was “the star of the midterm elections, the hottest thing the tea party had produced.”
Morgan initially asked O’Donnell questions she thought were fair, and he even empathized with her regrets about her “I’m not a witch” ad. But then Morgan launched into a tangent about masturbation and asked her if she had ever “lusted.”
“It was very sexist, the line of questioning,” said O’Donnell. “I think I was a good sport leading up to his questions. He took a decidedly creepy turn … He asked question after question after question about sex. Then he threw a question about gay marriage in there.”
By the time he pressed her on so-called “gay” rights, O’Donnell was offended and late for a speech, she said, so she ended the interview and walked off the set.
The Morgan interview recalled what O’Donnell describes as “unrelenting” attacks that she and her campaign workers received from media and both the Democratic and Republican political establishments.
In “Trouble Maker,” O’Donnell shares the lessons she learned, exposes culprits and tries to move citizens from apathy to activism.
At the event in Arlington, Va., Ron Wilcox, lead organizer of the Northern Virginia Tea Party, and several Virginia candidates praised O’Donnell for her leadership in a new era of American history.
