I know a lot of people who claim to be centrists, who really aren't.
Centrism is cool, but it's impossible to be a true centrist. trump's extremism has moved the balance of the scale anyway. Do we even know what a centrist is now? Any actual Centrists are labeled RINOs or straight Dems by trumpers.
If we want to talk Moderates, Obama was the most moderate President in recent history, by far. Almost too moderate for my liking.
Bothsideism can also be termed "balance fallacy"
I disagree, Obama was rather left. Bush, both of them were the same to the right, Trump is not extremist right but populist.
I remember a lot of people claiming to be libertarian for a while. I find most who claim it, aren't... (no true scotsman fallacy FTW!)
