Chris Hayes: Sustained Effort To Delegitimize Trump, "No Matter How Deranged," Is The Path Back To Power For Democrats (RealClearPolitics)

CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: I remember covering the Tea Party and people thought wow, those people are losing their minds. They are screaming at people at rallies, and I remember covering birtherism, and thinking this is deranged, this is a deranged theory that is being promoted by a con-artist and huge parts of the Republican base are going for it. They're flirting with it, he's going to get the Mitt Romney endorsement and show up at CPAC. This is a group of people losing their mind. It turns out that was incredibly politically effective. Isn't the answer here that sustained efforts at total delegitimization, no matter how deranged, is actually the path back to power?
