The phrase "demanded that he say it" is common and I wonder why "demanded that he said it" is ungrammatical.

You never bother to learn what you're talking about before you open your mouth, otherwise you would have already known that he only said it after Mr. Biden and the debate moderator demanded that he say it.

@oristarA,
You don't demand that someone do some (said) in the past.

You demand something be done in the present or future.

At the time the moderator demanded that he say it.
