MSNBC’s Chris Matthews thinks Declaration of Independence written in 20th century

matthews-wild It seems Chris “Tingles” Matthews apparently attended a history class with Sheila Jackson Lee, and thinks the Declaration of Independence was written in the 20th century.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the unhinged host who recently smeared people who question regime Obamacare numbers made the statement while speaking with Al Sharpton, who never caught the mistake:

While appearing on Politics Nation Thursday night Chris Matthews claimed that Thomas Jefferson’s immortal words “all men are created equal” were penned during the 20th century.

Of course, the phrase wasn’t penned in the 20th century, but as Hillary Clinton might say, what difference does it make?

You know that if this was said by a Republican, Matthews’ head would be exploding.



Joe Newby

A 10-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Joe ran for a city council position in Riverside, Calif., in 1991 and managed successful campaigns for the Idaho state legislature. Co-author of "Banned: How Facebook enables militant Islamic jihad," Joe wrote for Examiner.com from 2010 until it closed in 2016 and his work has been published at Newsbusters, Spokane Faith and Values and other sites. He now runs the Conservative Firing Line.
