Roy Moore’s Attorney Went On MSNBC And It Got Downright Weird In Seconds (VIDEO)

If perhaps you thought that things couldn’t get more surreal and bizarre when it comes to the case of Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, his attorney showed up on MSNBC Wednesday and blew that premise all to hell.

Trenton Garmon, whose name sounds like a cut-rate tailoring shop, was asked an incredibly pertinent question by host Stephanie Ruhle regarding Moore asking the parents of young girls if he could date them:

“Why would he need permission from any of these girls’ mothers if they weren’t underage?”

Rather than respond as you’d expect, Garmon went right into weirdness from the get-go, commenting:

“Culturally speaking, I would say there’s differences. I looked up Ali’s background there and, wow, that’s awesome that you have got such a diverse background. It’s really cool to read through that.”

Garmon was referring to co-host Ali Velshi, who was born in Kenya, raised in Canada, and is of Indian descent. Clearly agitated, Ruhle then inquired:

“What does Ali’s background have to do with dating a 14-year-old?”

To that, Garmon responded:

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


“Ali’s from Canada!”

That led Garmon to go down another strange rabbit hole of “logic” by saying:

“I understand that. And Ali’s also spent time in other countries.”

Once again Ruhle countered perfectly by telling Garmon:

“So have I.”

Trying desperately to regain his footing in the debate, Garmon then noted:

“To answer your question: [Moore] said… his process would be—before he’d date anybody, whether they’re 25, 35, or whether he doesn’t know their age—he would ask the mother’s permission. So there’s no inconsistency in that.”

While it might be admirable to ask the permission of a parent before you date their daughter, when you consider that Moore has always been fond of jailbait, it fits into a larger pattern of clearly reprehensible behavior.
