Former Republican presidential candidate and well-loved personality by almost all conservatives, Herman Cain has tragically passed away. Some outlets are attempting to make a connection to the fact that he was at the Tulsa, OK Trump rally. A statement was put out by Dan Calabrese:
“Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away,” Calabrese said in the blog post. “We all prayed so hard every day. We knew the time would come when the Lord would call him home, but we really liked having him here with us, and we held out hope he’d have a full recovery.”
Cain was among the highest-profile public figures in the United States to have died from Covid-19. A 74-year-old survivor of stage 4 colon cancer, Cain had attended Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, less than two weeks before receiving his diagnosis.
Cain had been a business executive and board chairman of a branch of Kansas City’s Federal Reserve Bank before moving into Republican politics and eventually becoming a presidential candidate.
Last year, Trump briefly considered picking Cain as his nominee to join the Federal Reserve Board. Cain remained a vocal supporter of Trump’s after his nomination was withdrawn, and he attended the president’s controversial reelection rally in Oklahoma in June, shortly before being diagnosed with the coronavirus.
Some leftists are already trying to make this tragedy political:
Herman Cain's death is TRAGIC but it was PREVENTABLE.— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) July 30, 2020
This man did not have to die.
He should have worn a mask, in Tulsa & everywhere.
He should have WARNED his followers about #coronavirus & not dismissed it, and not celebrated dismissing medical advice and science for Trump https://t.co/WHlWxzFafp
Joe Concha had this to say: “Some people using this opportunity to mock and dunk on Herman Cain truly shows how dark and ugly things can be down here. It’s not just evil, it’s soulless.” See tweet:
