JOSH ROBIN (HOST): Well speaking of alt-right, Hillary Clinton delivered this major address today in Nevada where she says that a fringe element has effectively taken over the Republican Party. What do you make of that?
ROGER STONE: Gee, that's what they said about Barry Goldwater too, and of course the nomination of Goldwater led to the ultimate election of Reagan.
You know how your favorite band suddenly seems less cool once your mom knows about them? Or an internet catchphrase loses its cachet once your history teacher uses it to explain the Reconstruction era?
Presidential campaigns are like that.
The latest example comes from Donald Trump’s campaign store, where an “issues statement” T-shirt promotes “Competent Leadership& 2nd Amendment Rights& SmallGovernment& ImmigrationReform& HealthcareReform& TaxReform& Jobs.”
The shirt is a direct reference to one from President Obama’s campaign which called for “ClimateChange& EconomicOpportunity& GunViolencePrevention& HealthCare& ImmigrationReform& MarriageEquality& WomensRights&”.
But the real origin of the design comes from Amsterdam-based graphic designers Experimental Jetset, who created a band T-shirt about the Beatles for a Japanese T-shirt company called 2K/Gingham in 2001.
The original design was stark: “John& Paul& Ringo& George.” As the designers explain on their website, the first names were chosen to help strip the band down to its essentials, while the ampersands were added to keep George Harrison’s longer first name from standing out too much.
They followed it with similar shirts for the Rolling Stones (“Keith& Mick& Bill& Charlie& Brian.”) and the Ramones (“Joey& DeeDee& Johnny& Tommy.”), but the minimalist design was so popular that it soon was ripped off by other T-shirt makers for everything from the Wu-Tang Clan to Nintendo to Star Wars.
The designers seem unfazed by the attention, posting images on their own site of the copies.
Maine Gov. Paul LePage said he was angry enough to challenge a state lawmaker to a duel Thursday, after leaving an explicit voicemail accusing the legislator of calling him a racist.
LePage left the message for Maine Rep. Drew Gattine after a local reporter seemed to suggest that several people, including Gattine, had called the governor a racist, according to the Portland Press Herald.

Donald Trump’s new “softening” of his hardline immigration stance may put him more in line with the views of most Americans, but it’s left some conservatives furious.
“There certainly can be a softening because we’re not looking to hurt people,” Trump said of his immigration plan this week. “We want people—we have some great people in this country.” Previously Trump has called to build a border wall and use a “deportation force” to remove 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Some Republicans are upset with Trump because they support him and feel betrayed on his signature issue; other conservatives didn’t like Trump in the first place and point to this as evidence of his dishonesty.
