During the 8:30 a.m. half-hour of NBC’s Today 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 “big thoughts on big issues,” ranging “from drug laws and voting to the redistribution of the wealth around the world.”

Substitute co-host Tamron Hall gushed that Brand’s book is “funny and, as always, thought-provoking” 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.
