I think what Danny Garland Jr. is saying is this...
I guess that is your own personal interpretation of Garland?
I think he made himself clear. He thinks that God became a trinity and that the trinity has not always existed. He later makes a strange statement about Jesus being a created being. And, of course, in the end he makes reference to how all of this has implications for "The Blessed Virgin." Naturally, no true Catholic article is complete without a deferential reference to the Queen of Heaven, The Mediatrix of all Grace and the Future Co-Redeemer with Christ.

Christ's humanity is created. Before the Incarnation there was the Eternal, Uncreated Word, Second Divine Person of the Trinity, but there was no Word made flesh, no Jesus, until the Holy Spirit overshadowed the Virgin Mary. Blessed John Duns Scotus is referring to the predestination of the human nature of Christ--predestined to be united to God in the Person of the Word. Scotus' point is that in the divine plan God first willed the Incarnation, He first willed that the Word become flesh, then He predestined us in Christ before the foundations of the world sin or no sin(cf. Eph. 1:4).

“He thinks that God became a trinity and that the trinity has not always existed.”
Don’t be a prole. God only acts in time when he acts in the universe subject to time. Clearly willing for God is an eternal, timeless, event which we can only speak of in terms that connote time. Your argument is a strawman and you know it.
