The video that launched Tatum’s new career:
In September, a Tucson Police officer posted a video to Facebook about the NFL that went viral, garnering over 30 million views. Now, former Officer Brandon Tatum is moving on and hoping to take the internet by storm in his new role with Liftable Media.
Tatum will be “the new face” of ConservativeTribune.com.
On Wednesday, Tatum discussed his new role on the James T. Harris radio show, where the public first met him after his 2016 video, in which he discussed then-candidate Donald Trump’s appearance in Tucson, earned over 800,000 views.
ConservativeTribune.com is a christian-based opinion blog produced out of Anthem, Arizona. “They want to pay me to be me,” said “It is a great company. I couldn’t ask for a better company, for better people. I will definitely have an opportunity to get the word out.”
Tatum said he would like to do some “motivational speaking, or possibly going to Washington D.C. I don’t know. All I want to do is just serve people.
Harris asked Tatum what he thought was behind his popularity. “I think the President is literally opening up the can of worms on people. People are revealing who they are. I think the country is revealing who the majority is, and the people on the left are revealing just how crazy some of them are. Individuals like you, like I, who just speak the truth, are venting, and just telling it like it is – you know, people want to hear that. I think the American people, as a whole, are just looking for outlets where they can just hear common sense commentary.”
Tatum told Harris he would miss some aspects of police work. “I will miss the camaraderie. I am going to miss driving Code Three and saving people’s lives. I am going to miss being the light in people’s darkest moments,” said Tatum.
Because Liftable Media is a top 50 Digital Publisher, and holds “two of the top 100 websites in the United States,” according to the company, Tatum will have ample opportunity to bring light to people’s darkest moments on a grander scale.
