Stephen Moore doesn’t know why people are so hung up on his old articles.

When asked about his past misogynistic comments, Stephen Moore asserted on Tuesday that there should be a “statute of limitations on saying stupid things.”

President Donald Trump’s former pick for the Federal Reserve Board appeared on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon, during which anchor Ali Velshi asked Moore whether he thought his columns disparaging women contributed to his nomination withdrawal.

Moore claimed that amid the “scores of women” he knows, “not one of them has made a claim of any kind of misconduct or misbehavior.”

Important Update On Comments

Beginning May 1, 2021, the option to comment on an article will be reserved only for TPM members. Non-members and those with free accounts will still be able to read comments both past and present, but will no longer be able to participate. We didn’t come to this decision lightly. Lively dicussion amongst our readers is a critical component of TPM. But in the interest of strengthening and sustaining these discussions, we determined this was the best way forward.

We hope that dedicated participants in the comments will join us as members, and want to make it as easy as possible for you to to so. So we are offering 40% OFF an annual Prime membership to TPM readers with commenting accounts.

We also offer FREE memberships to those experiencing financial hardship and FREE memberships for students.
