SHARPTON: "What's your reaction, first of all to the Charles Koch op-ed today?"
MATTHEWS: "Well, I first thought about whether he thought about the liberty of Sally Hemmings. Were you thinking that? I was thinking that. I mean, I think Jefferson said beautiful things. Probably the most important sentence in our history, 'All men are created equal.' Probably the most important sentence ever spoken in the 20th century or many centuries. But yet, when he went to write that sentence, he was shacked up with Sally Hemmings who was a slave."
