Roy Moore’s Attorney Bumbles Through an Embarrassing MSNBC Interview (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I believe that every American with the need is entitled to competent legal representation.

I get the feeling that’s not what Roy Moore has, right now.

Trenton Garmon, the nutty guy who is apparently responsible for Roy Moore’s legal counsel, seems more like a recurring comedy skit, at this point.

While appearing on MSNBC, Garmon attempted to make excuses for Moore’s predilection for young girls (they’re not even trying to deny it, now). In doing so, he made a reference to host Ali Velshi’s background, and it was cringe-worthy.

“Culturally speaking there’s differences. I looked up Ali’s background, and wow, that’s awesome that you have got such a diverse background, it’s really cool to read through that,” attorney Trenton Garmon said when asked why Moore would need permission from girls’ mothers to date them.

Uh… What are you talking about?

“What does Ali Velshi’s background have to do with dating children, 14-year-old girls?” co-host Stephanie Ruhle interjected.

He was trying to say Velshi knows about the culture of child brides.

“In other countries, there’s arrangement through parents for what we would refer to as consensual marriage,” Garmon said.

Dude… no.

“Ali’s from Canada,” Ruhle said.

He was actually born in Kenya, but raised and schooled in Canada.

And I may be wrong, so somebody please correct me, but I don’t think they have child brides or arranged marriages in Canada.

“Ali’s also spent time in other countries,” Garmon said. “So it’s not a bad thing.”

“I don’t know where you’re going with this, Trenton,” Velshi said.

Don’t feel bad. He didn’t, either, but I do like that attempt at a save.

This isn’t even Garmon’s first bizarre turn in front of the cameras.

Last week, during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, he referred to the host as, “Don Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.”

Garmon is actually connected to Moore through his wife, Kayla Moore. He represents a Montgomery-based legal advocacy outfit called the Foundation for Moral Law.

His background seems sketchy, and a recent letter written on Roy Moore’s behalf to the Alabama Media Group, seeking to have them stop reporting on Moore’s current scandal is nearly incoherent.

At this point, I’m of the belief that Moore’s hope is to distract from the actual problem by getting the media to focus on this guy’s antics.

I guess that’s a strategy.

Roy Moore’s Attny. Trenton Garmon suggests Ali Velshi’s “background” would help him understand why Moore would date underage women — @AliVelshi is from Canada
