Not really, the black population as a whole has been hard hit by COVID. I kinda expected it.

Does it strike anyone else as weird that the first big name pro trump anti-mask Trump supporter to die though his own stupidity turned out to be black?
With easy access to all that Godfather's pizza, I'm sure he had more than a few underlying health conditions.

He had metastasized stage 4 colon and liver cancer in 2006 and had to have very aggressive chemo along with surgery because of it. So an already reduced immune, respiratory, or cardiovascular system isn't an unreasonable probability.

Having that kind of underlying health problems and still not taking precautions make him even more stupid.

Like so many of trump's supporters/followers Cain seems to have ignored the reality that actions can have consequences. Almost all reputable doctors advise wearing a mask, social distancing and avoid areas where cases are increasing. You ignore all that and it's very possible you might get sick. What is political about that idea?

It is truly unbelievable the way trump and his minions have politicized a viral epidemic. There's some pushback in other countries, sure, but nothing like what we're seeing in the US. There's a reason why the United States with 4% of the world's population has over 20% of the reported coronavirus cases.

These reckless fools are dragging all of us down with them.

That's pretty much who he was before Trump, who would have maintained a similar status had he not started winning primaries. They're morons of a similar level politically, though it seems that Herman Cain was at least competent at managing/running businesses.

Over 155 thousand deaths total. 60k+ infections a day. 252 deaths in Florida today. 322 in Texas. Herman Cain dying of this virus after refusing to wear a mask at a Trump rally because his party Leader is so anti-covid and masks.

What exactly will it take for Republicans to start to get angry about this with the way the White House is running things?

Oooh....nice try but epic failure! Cain didn't get shot or suffocated by a cop. He died because he got Covid after refusing to support the wearing of masks to help stop the spread of the virus.

Given the obvious Trump being snubbed by the John Lewis funeral/memorial planning, and it must really burn that Obama had the last word, will Trump go to Cain's funeral or speak? I wonder if he'll even send Pence? Cain was a big Trump supporter.

If he starts going after them as a whole, then they'll figure out something is wrong.

Of course this is quite possibly due to attending the Tulsa rally.

Or he could have been the super spreader at that event, couldn't he?

GOP legislators or GOP supporters in general ?

If it's the legistlators: Maybe if and when the big donors threaten to stop the flow of money. Definitely if and when Trump's base shows signs of deserting him.

If it's GOP supporters in general: Maybe never unless they, or someone they love is seriously ill or dies ?

I can spare some sympathy if a bad person dies of cancer or accidents. There's no such thing as karma.

But this isn't karma, it's consequence.

I think that hits where I'm at on this. I don't want someone to die of cancer, but if a tobacco exec who funded misinformation about the link between his product and cancer dies of cancer I'm not so troubled.

This feels similar. I don't wish death upon H. Cain, but that he died from his own stupidity because he was kissing up to a politician who won't even show up to his funeral, I'm not so troubled.

There's still plenty of time for more of these MAGA ghouls to die gasping. Here's to hope!
