Former Tucson, Ariz., police officer and conservative activist Brandon Tatum introduced the house down on “The Deplorables” comedy tour, recounting the story of the viral pro-Trump video that made him well-known.
“I made a video on Facebook, never made a video before in my life. To be honest with y’all, I was actually in the restroom,” he said in the present carried out in Mesa, Ariz., on January 17, which is now out there on Fox Nation.
“I didn’t have nothing on down here. Don’t tell nobody,” he joked, gesturing under his waist.
Tatum defined that he was a Democrat till he turned disillusioned with President Barack Obama over what he perceived to be anti-police rhetoric.
“At the beginning of my career, [I was] super, super Obama and then he messed up,” stated Tatum, who was a member of the police power for almost seven years, serving at a SWAT staff officer, discipline coaching officer and public info officer.
“Let me tell you how he messed up, how he lost it all for me,” Tatum continued, “He started dragging police officers through the mud.”
“The things that he said. I saw them affect me on my job, made it more dangerous, made it more of a risk, and I couldn’t stand it. I said, ‘You know what? I will never vote for another politician that will not stand up for the men and women with the badge,” he stated to the crowd’s applause.
Tatum stated that was his “red pill” second when he determined to contemplate voting for a Republican.
After Dr. Ben Carson dropped out of the 2016 Republican presidential race, Tatum stated that he determined to provide Donald Trump an opportunity, although he had his reservations.
“I said, ‘look, I’m going to go to the rally and I’ll see what he’s all about. I’ll rule him out… if y’all as racist as they say that y’all are — I’ll find out,” he informed the viewers, a lot of whom wore Make America Nice Once more hats.
When Tatum arrived at the Trump rally in Tucson, he stated he was shocked — not by the candidate and his supporters, however by the anti-Trump protesters outdoors the occasion.
“I went there and my mind was blown,” stated Tatum. “All of these liberals were out of control. I was a racist. I hate my own people, white supremacist, white nationalist, I mean, they called me everything.”
“But everybody in there,” he noticed, “like y’all were peaceful, respectful, loving. We were united.”
Afterward, Tatum documented his response in a video and the response was overwhelming.

“I thought a hundred people are going to see it — all of my friends,” he joked. “That thing had millions [of views] and I was like, ‘Oh, God, I’m getting fired. They gonna fire me.'”
Tatum is joined on “The Deplorables” tour by Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren, comic Terrence K. Williams and others, together with Turning Level USA’s Benny Johnson, who had this to say about free speech in America.
“As conservatives, we’re the only people that are legally still allowed to have a damn sense of humor in this country,” he joked. “I just ridiculed left and right, ridiculed our politicians, powerful people in our country. That is the First Amendment in action. That’s what makes this country so damn awesome.”
