Brand, 39, hit SiriusXM Studios Tuesday on a stop to promote his latest book, “Revolution.”
Just before his interview, GOSSIP TABLE spies heard Brand get blessed by a priest in the lobby of SiriusXM Studios Tuesday, where he sat for an interview for “Unmasked” with host Ron Bennington.
“I ran into a priest and a nun in the corridor, never miss an opportunity for a blessing from someone who’s dedicated their life to the lord,” Brand said. “I got blessed and it felt like something.”
He then took aim at Donald Trump, calling him a “bit daft.”
“It didn’t seem like he knew much (outside capitalism),” Brand said. “It’s not like he’s a person who’s a super guy or anything hes just good at hungry hippo and we live in hungry hippo land.”
“I want a society where the people that are poorest and most vulnerable are taken care of,” he said. “People that are ordinary and working get a decent life, and the economic elite, that currently are on some edifice of irreproachability, on some plinth of inaccessibility, contribute to our society.”
He then used security to run away from fans after an hour of saying we are all the same.
