<p>During the 8:30 a.m. half-hour of NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> on Monday, Matt Lauer interviewed far-left actor Russell Brand and gave him ample opportunity to promote his new book and what Lauer described as his <strong>&ldquo;big thoughts on big issues,&rdquo; </strong>ranging <strong>&ldquo;from drug laws and voting to the redistribution of the wealth around the world.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Substitute co-host Tamron Hall gushed that Brand&rsquo;s book is <strong>&ldquo;funny and, as always, thought-provoking&rdquo;</strong> just prior to the four-and-a-half minute interview in which Lauer and Brand would discussed his calls to legalize a whole host of drugs from marijuana to heroin and how he has promised never to vote because he feels electoral systems are all rigged.&nbsp;</p>
