WATCH: Russell Brand Says Only Donald Trump Can Protect Freedom And Democracy

In a new episode of his "Stay Free with Russell Brand" podcast, comedian Russell Brand said that, in a two-man race, the choice is clear between presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump and President Joe Biden on who would preserve freedom and democracy in the United States.

"In a straight choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, if you care about democracy, if you care about freedom, I don't know how you could do anything other than vote for Donald Trump for precisely the reasons that they claim that you can't," Brand told RNC spokeswoman Elizabeth Pipko.

"They act as if a vote for Donald Trump is almost like you're directly voting for Armageddon, like you see hysterical performances outside of courtrooms, endless MSNBC bombast," Brand continued. "But I'm starting to think that no, a greater threat to democracy is this kind of technological feudalism that tells you that it cares about you and that it's protecting vulnerable people, all the while increasing censorship, increasing the funding of wars, increasing the division between ordinary Americans."

Brand also slammed left-wing pundits who have condemned Trump supporters for wanting to fight for the America First agenda that he represents, the same contempt that doomed Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016 when she called Trump supporters "deplorables."

"For a long time, Elizabeth, I've been concerned about the snobbery and the contempt and condemnation in which people that support Donald Trump are plainly held by his detractors. And this is while you have an administration that's emulating his policies, plagiarizing from Donald Trump, while simultaneously criminalizing him from the weaponization of the legal system," Brand explained. "The idea of this…Orwellian nightmare continuing all the while they're telling you that they're helping you is a far greater threat than their constant portrayal of Trump as a mad strongman figure, a kind of twenty-first-century reiteration of the despotism of the last century. For me, what we are facing now is a bigger threat than that."

Brand, who has become increasingly outspoken about his personal politics in recent years, is right about the presidential election in November. While a majority of voters still believe that Trump is a greater threat to democracy (51 percent), more and more Americans are beginning to see the threat that Biden poses to America's democratic institutions. According to a recent survey from Data For Progress, 44 percent of voters say that Biden is the far greater threat to democracy.
