It's tough to hold on to respect of anyone when you give them the benefit-of-the-doubt multiple times, yet that's what has happened with my respect towards Brandon Tatum unfortunately.
The blatant ignorance of not having his fellow Turning Point USA Communications Director Candace Owens keep from facing the error of her ways is appalling enough alone (Blexit involves both the alleged theft of the '#Blexit' name/movement and lie about Kanye West being the actual designer of the Blexit logo [context matters - she knows this]). He was standing only a couple of feet from her during the moment she lied about Kanye and Blexit...
...Yet, he had a live-stream this past Sunday night where he continually defended her and stated she never lied. It wasn't enough that Tatum got 'O'Keefed' by Hotep Jesus (Bryan Sharpe), he also had to bring him into this live-stream; calling him less of a man because Sharpe secretly filmed Tatum stating he was doing Massa Charlie Kirk's bidding by kicking Sharpe out of the event because...'optics'.
In addition, Candace Owens and Turning Point USA have been provided a cease-and-desist order from the ORIGINAL Blexit organization (#ReclaimBlexit) - where are the reports on this?
People, like Candace, will NEVER learn lessons and gain trust when they aren't forced to face their actual lies. Brandon Tatum is only making it worse by covering for her - when he knows what she said in plain-sight!
The willful ignorance is deafening. If he's willing to defend this lie to cover one of his own, that's incredulous - I've unfortunately lost respect for the guy now.
