Moore, appearing on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, said that he was the subject of personal attacks by left because of his views on economic policy, which he said was never the subject of debate during his consideration.
“The left understood from the first couple of days, because they did surveys of the senators and the Republicans senators loved my economic views and so on, and that’s when they launched this character assassination,” he said speaking to host Tucker Carlson.
“The most amazing thing, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, they got my divorce settlement from 10 years ago unsealed so that they could just put all of this dirt on me that had nothing to do with my qualifications to be on the fed.”
“Some of things I’ve said are stupid, I wish there were a statute of limitations on stupidity because some of these things were 20 - 25 years old.”
“Well this is a little awkward for CNN because every night they trash me now when for the last two and a half years I’ve been their senior economics writer and the things they’re talking about now are things that happened 20 years ago.
