Whether you’re a fan of Russell Brand or not, this video clip of him appearing on Morning Joe on MSNBC is absolutely unmissable.
Brand manages to use his wit, charm, and intelligence to wrap three experienced news anchors and journalists up in knots. They don’t know how to cope with such a sharp man.
The whole thing is fantastic, but a couple of things deserve particular attention. The objectification comment… who is “Willy Brand?”… the playing with the (phallic-shaped) bottle… the direct question about Edward Snowden.
Brand realized these people were setting him up to fail and took them down one at a time. It’s brilliant to watch, and a great advert for his stand-up show.
