Women lol

One of the men on Trump’s Bros To Maybe Hire Possibly lists has left a trail of sexist contempt for women. Now there’s a surprise!

One of President Donald Trump’s picks to serve on the Federal Reserve Board has written that women should be banned from refereeing, announcing or beer vending at men’s college basketball games, asking if there was any area in life “where men can take vacation from women.”

Stephen Moore, an economic commentator and former Trump campaign adviser, made those and similar comments in several columns reviewed by CNN’s KFile that were published on the website of the conservative National Review magazine in 2001twice in 2002 and 2003.

There’s conservative, and then there’s casually misogynist. The two aren’t necessarily the same. Conservatives don’t have to express contempt for women as a condition of membership.

In a 2000 column, Moore complained about his wife voting for Democrats, writing, “Women are sooo malleable! No wonder there’s a gender gap.” In another column in 2000, Moore criticized female athletes advocating for pay equality, writing that they wanted “equal pay for inferior work.”

He says he was joking. Hurr hurr.

The columns are attracting renewed attention as his prior views and statements face scrutiny ahead of what could be a contentious confirmation process to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. Trump said in March he intends to nominate Moore to the position, but Moore has not officially been nominated yet.

The resurfaced comments come as Trump’s other pick for a seat on Fed board, Herman Cain, faces scrutiny over allegations of sexual harassment that ended his 2012 presidential campaign.

It’s almost as if Trump prefers sexist men.
