Video of the segment released by CNN shows the exchange that went down on the latter subject. During the 2010 election season, video surfaced of O'Donnell indicating she's "dabbled into witchcraft." In the clip from years earlier she said, "I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do." The Tea Party favorite explained, "One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar and I didn't know it. I mean, there was a little blood there and stuff like that. ... We went to a movie and then had a little picnic on a satanic altar.
HuffPost's Sam Stein reported at the time the remarks came to light:
During her campaign, O'Donnell made headlines with a political ad in which she states, "I'm not a witch." Earlier this week, she said she never liked the spot and called its release her own "mistake." When asked about her views on gay marriage in Wednesday's interview O'Donnell tells Morgan, "You're borderline being a little bit rude." “I’m not talking about policies. I’m not running for office," she says on the program. “Ask Michele Bachmann what she thinks. Ask the candidates running for office what they think.
O'Donnell is out with a new book titledTroublemaker: Let's Do What It Takes to Make America Great Again. The former candidate signaled that she only wanted to discuss the contents of her work on CNN. HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reported earlier this week that in the introduction O'Donnell describes the book as "a political memoir slash campaign diary slash position paper slash rallying cry, with an emphasis on the slash."
