Herman Cain Dies From Coronavirus at 74

Herman Cain (Molly Riley/AP)
By Bill Hoffmann | Thursday, 30 July 2020 10:14 AM



Herman Cain — the maverick American business czar and Republican presidential candidate who campaigned for a sweeping tax reform plan called 9-9-9 — died Thursday morning after a monthlong battle with the coronavirus. He was 74.

Cain, who recently joined Newsmax TV and was set to launch a weekly show, died in an Atlanta-area hospital where he had been critically ill for several weeks.

He was admitted on July 1, two days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Ten days before, Cain had attended a rally for President Donald Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

11. Too true. But Cain has a big role in his own death because he helped other people die too:


Prior to his hospitalization, Cain, 74, appeared at President Donald Trump’s Tulsa rally without a mask, and later expressed his frustration about mask-wearing requirements.

“PEOPLE ARE FED UP!” Cain said of mask mandates on July 1—the same day he would end up being hospitalized.
Two days after he was tested positive and already feeling ill, he posts AGAINST masks.

He won't be happy about this, since his rally is responsible, which of course he will deny. RIP, Herman. Hope you at least get a mention on Fox News.

Maybe he would have died sooner.

After all, I'm sure he's one of those that would give their old life for the sake of the economy...

21. Bad decision made by an adult.

R.I.P., every single death from this is tragic, but we are still wearing masks, still washing every grocery item we bring into the house, still self-quarantining and going out maybe once a week at the most for groceries and errands. Every time we go into a store we pull out the hand sanitizer. We don't touch our faces until we are home and have finished washing whatever we bought and then wash our hands with disinfectant soap.

I don't know how many times people are going to have to see things like this before they stop railing against masks as an encroachment on their "freedom." I fucking HATE wearing a mask. I'd make a lousy superhero. But I put one on every time I leave the house because I refuse to leave this world as the result of my own arrogance in the face of what is happening.

I think president has had top tier medical treatment- knows he's immune* He's a coward and would never risk his own health/death to covid. sunlei 7/2020


But others, people who attend his rallies, serve him his meals, his secret service, his golf caddies- even his fellow Republicans- he lets them be exposed and risk death.


RIP Mr Cain, I never 'liked you' but no one should have to die because of the presidents actions.

He gleefully attended Diabolical Don's Tulsa Coronapalooza while ridiculing others for wearing masks. The cause of death should be listed as a combination of ignorance and suicide.
