On “Left, Right & Center” on Friday, Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer and the other panelists ask whether we’re seeing a new, moderate Trump and where the presidential candidates stand after the New York primary.

Democratic pollster Margie Omero, joining the program as a special guest, says two-thirds of New York Democrats say the primary has been energizing, while the opposite is true for Republicans. And the Supreme Court heard arguments about President Obama’s plan to shield undocumented immigrants from deportation. Will the vacancy on the court produce another 4-4 decision?

Harriett Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, and a hot Broadway musical may have saved Alexander Hamilton’s spot on the $10. The musician Prince, who died this week, wrote a song about Donald Trump in 1990. Really.

Scheer is joined by Todd Purdum of Politico Magazine and Vanity Fair, serving as the hour’s guest host. Rich Lowry of the National Review joins the program on the right.
