National embarrassment Stephen Moore is no longer a candidate for the Federal Reserve Board.

Trump must be slipping if he cannot once again put the worst person possible in a position of authority.

Stephen Moore told President Trump on Thursday that he is withdrawing from consideration for a Federal Reserve nomination due to the “unrelenting attacks” from his critics.

Moore, who Trump floated in March for a spot on the Fed board, told the president in a letter that he and his family could not handle the mounting criticism over his nomination, much of which centered around Moore’s resurfaced past writings.

“I am respectfully asking that you withdraw my name from consideration,” Moore, a conservative commentator and former Trump campaign adviser, wrote to the president. “The unrelenting attacks on my character have become untenable for me and my family and 3 more months of this would be too hard on us.”

Trump said Thursday afternoon that Moore had pulled out of the running for a nomination to Fed board, just hours after Moore told reporters he was “all in” on a bid for the central bank.

I am appropriately worried about whatever “work” that Moore is planning to do to help with “future economic growth.” 

By the way, the “unrelenting attacks” he speaks of were actually reporting of him making sexist comments.

Like this:

Even without those comments, it was widely understood that Moore was horrifically unfit for a position on the Fed board. 

Not only is he a singularly unintelligent man but he is a social pariah who cannot help but say the wrong thing in any given situation. 

Hopefully, after this Moore sill slink right back to whatever rock he crawled out from under.

    Pretty sure Tiffany Trump will get the job. And whoever she is dating will become a supreme court judge.

    Your Guilty
    “The opioid epidemic has killed nearly 400,000 Americans since 1999, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    Subsys is a rapid-onset opioid intended only for cancer patients with intense breakthrough pain. Prosecutors said the defendants conspired from May 2012 to December 2015 to bribe doctors, including many who ran pain clinics, to give the drug to patients who should never have received it.
    The drug is about 100 times more powerful than morphine.”

    Those skeletons Moore was hiding were supposed to stay in that closet! When he was running his mouth on TV and saying stupid sh*t about economics, he was auditioning for one person—DJT. What he didn’t count on were those skeletons coming out of that closet, and the fact that there are millions of us regular Americans who understand economics well and know he didn’t know what he was talking about.

    Sure Moore is unfit for the Fed job, but that fits Dotard’s pattern of choosing people who are unfit. Other than General Mattis, I cannot think of a single person who Dotard has nominated to any role who is qualified for that role.

    OT? In a minority opinion, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that the court in recent years has routinely deployed the law to deny to employees and consumers
    “effective relief against powerful economic entities.”

    Look at the tax break they gave one percenters in 2017. Corporations got the biggest cut in history, their rate sledgehammered down from 35 percent to 21 percent. The rich reap by far the largest benefit from those tax cuts through 2027, according to an analysis by the Tax Policy Center. And by then, 53 percent of Americans—that is, workers, not rich people—will pay more than they did in 2017 because tax breaks for workers expire.
