Thomas Mattocks criticized Joyce Reehling recently for mistakenly attributing the phrase “All men are created equal” to the Constitution when it’s actually part of the Declaration of Independence. Because of this, he claims that she’s unqualified to “lecture the rest of us on the importance of historical truth.”
President Trump showed a woeful lack of knowledge and respect for our Constitution, which led to the insurrection of Jan. 6, 2021. I’m surprised Thomas Mattocks failed to mention that.
