OK, so this is fantastic.

On this afternoon’s edition of “The Cycle,” Touré asked Martin Luther King III if the Democratic Party takes black people for granted. Good thing he was sitting down when he asked that question, because King’s response knocked the wind out of him:

“We’re not a monolithic people. So, while I happen to be a Democrat, I think it’s important for African Americans to be Republicans, I think it’s important for African Americans to be independent … I also think it’s important to be engaged with the Tea Party.”

Touré’s reaction was precious:

“What … why would it be important for us to be engaged with the Tea Party?”

Picture-perfect — literally!

Watch the magic unfold for yourself:

Classic. Just classic.
