Americans who have little contact with or insight about international politics tend to think of Dems as "left" and Pugs as "right". But by international standards the Dems are somewhere in the center-left to center-right zone - probably BHO center-left and HTC center-right.
Why is that important? Because, in my view, RW and LW extremists both
work under the guiding principle that if the facts don't fit their preconceptions and prejudices then the facts are at fault and must be ignored. Centrist parties are more reality-based and their aim is to improve the world as they find it (for some value of the word "improve"). Of course, politicians color what they say to further their aims, and any person might "mis-speak" in order to get out of an unpleasant hole, but that's not the issue.
And we see that in the interview as Kingston clearly regards lying as an absolutely correct action in supporting other liars, and when faced with facts he simply rejects them.
I agree that Katy Tur was excellent but so was Joy-Ann Reid. The suppressed anger in both of them at perpetually having to deal with this racist filth from ageing white male liars burned through their professional demeanor. The country - the world indeed - can only benefit if intelligent caring women gain more influence at the expense of self-deluding men with a sense of entitlement.
