During Thursday’s parole hearing for O.J. Simpson, his attorney compared accounts of President Trump’s ice cream habits to those of his client. Apparently, both Trump and Simpson have been reported to receive extra servings of the popular dessert, while fellow diners were left out.
Speaking off-camera, lawyer Malcolm LaVergne reportedly said, “There is an ice cream story. I wasn’t able to read all of it, but there’s some kind of ice cream story he’s thrown in now,” apparently referring to Jeffrey Felix, who wrote a book about Simpson. “Kind of like President Trump, you know? Trump gets two scoops; everyone else gets one. Something like that. Something ridiculous,” LaVergne concluded.
Felix is a retired correctional officer who self-published “Guarding the Juice: How O.J. Simpson Became My Prison BFF.” In his book, he said Simpson led a charmed prison life, eating well, exercising and even having access to a flat screen TV.
LaVergne is no fan of Felix. During a press conference following the parole hearing, LaVernge became irate when asked about Felix’s book, calling the author “a complete fraud.”
Apparently, Simpson shares his attorney’s opinion. He too called Felix a fraud during an off-camera conversation with his attorney while they awaited a decision from a four-member Nevada parole board that eventually granted Simpson’s early release.
Back in June, former secretary of state and failed presidential candidate John Kerry also compared Trump to Simpson. Kerry made the statement after Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord but that he was open to renegotiating the terms of the agreement. Kerry said Trump renegotiating the Paris Accord was “like O.J. Simpson saying he’s gonna go out” and “find the real killer” of Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman.
