Rachel Maddow draws parallels between Spiro Agnew & Donald Trump in her new book 'Bag Man'


Rachel Maddow joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss her new book out today on Richard Nixon's first Vice President, Spiro Agnew, called "Bag Man: The Wild Crimes, Audacious Cover-Up, and Spectacular Downfall of a Brazen Crook in the White House." On the parallels between Agnew and Trump. "I do think Agnew is under-appreciated as the first modern draft of the type Republicanism that ultimately brought us I think Sarah Palin...and Donald Trump. It's a specific type of Republicanism that deviates from what that party brought us in the past."
