Russell Brand Brilliantly Eviscerates Inane Morning Show Hosts

Badass Digest commands we WATCH: Russell Brand Brilliantly Eviscerate Inane Morning Show Hosts "The setup: Brand's appearing to promote his Messiah Complex comedy tour, and for the first four minutes of the clip he gets progressively more exasperated as the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe (I don't know who these clowns are, can't be bothered to look up their names) treat him much in the way you'd treat a trained monkey at a child's 8th birthday party. They claim they can't understand his accent, speak about him in the third person despite the fact that he's sitting at the same table, and at one point one of them even appears to start referring to him by the wrong name.

Around the 4:45 mark Brand seems to decide he's had about enough of this foolishness, and what follows may well be the most hilarious and deserved assault upon an idiotic 'journalist' since Geraldo Rivera got his face pushed in with a chair. It's all the more glorious in that none of the hosts seem to realize how savage this trouncing they've just received really is. At one point, Brand literally takes the show away from them and instantly does a better job."

I was uncomfortable watching this. I do watch Morning Joe because yelling at these people in the morning gets the blood pumping. They are not much better with any of their other guests. I can only imagine what would happen if Joe Scarborough was on that day.
