Tea Party politician Christine O’Donnell walked off the set of Piers Morgan’s interview show on CNN yesterday. After Morgan shot her a series of questions she didn't want to answer, O’Donnell told Morgan he was “borderline being a little bit rude" and proceeded to leave the studio.

O’Donnell went on the show to promote her new autobiography, Troublemaker, which chronicles the lead up to her 2010 campaign for senator of Delaware. During the interview, Morgan asked O’Donnell about her views on gay marriage, which she said she did not want to discuss. After her refusal, Morgan continued to press the issue until she walked off the set.

Morgan then tweeted the incident, encouraging those curious about O'Donnell's exit to tune in to the prerecorded interview last night. “BREAKING: Christine O'Donnell just walked out of my interview for @PiersTonight in disgust at my 'rudeness.' Tune in at 9 pm ET,” he tweeted. He later continued, "My first ever walk-out in 25 years of interviews. I guess viewers can decide if I was 'rude' or not tonight at 9 pm ET."
