Cain Caught Covid at Trump Tulsa Rally, & Now He’s Dead

RIP Herman Cain.  The former Republican presidential candidate and pizza CEO, died this week due to complications from COVID 19.  The virus that he clearly caught while attending Trump’s ‘super spreader’ Tulsa rally in late June.  The rally was widely regarded as a massive failure due to its attendance of just 6,200 in a stadium that could hold 19,200.

Cain, a 72 year old with a weakened immune system due to bouts with cancer, is in the ‘incredibly vulnerable to COVID 19’ portion of our population.  Yet he attended a rally in an indoor stadium, full of thousands of mouth breathing MAGA types, without a mask on the weekend of June 20th.

Trump’s own campaign revealed the Saturday before the rally that six members of the Trump team setting up the rally, had tested positive for COVID, including Secret Service personnel.  Two additional staffers who attended the rally later tested positive for COVID as well.

In short, there was COVID all over that stadium, the Trump campaign knew it, did nothing to stop it.  And people are now dead because of it.

The week following the Tulsa rally Cain got a COVID test, and on June 29th he received his positive test results.  By July 1st, his COVID symptoms were serious enough to be hospitalized in Atlanta.

Symptoms from COVID can take anywhere from 2-14 days to materialize after contraction.

The Trump campaign will try to ignore these clear facts, conservative talking heads will try to tell the public that there is ‘no way to tell’ where Cain caught Covid.  But you know it, I know it, and they know it.  The timeline is irrefutable.

The absolute best way to spread the virus is in large groups, indoors, who do not wear masks.  The poor old guy tested positive 9 days after the rally, and died a month later.

You may remember that in late June Trump was busy campaigning in the Midwest and bragging about his  successes against the virus: “We’ve done an incredible, historic job,” President Donald Trump boasted about U.S. anti-coronavirus efforts.

The President also refused to wear mask, refused to recognize the extent of the virus’ spread, and led his followers to believe there was nothing to fear.

How long will people listen to this guy?

    Ah… ignorance is not an effective shield against disease.
    Blindly going through life doesn’t help anyone.

    They were sure that “with God’s help” he would get better. If medical science hasn’t found a cure yet, God isn’t going to help.

    I’m sure the cancer he had didn’t kill him….It had to be the Covid, he got at the Trump rally.
