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.”
