Herman Cain dead following COVID-19 battle
Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate and affable business magnate, died after being hospitalized for coronavirus. He was the co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump and attended the president’s rally in Tulsa without a mask on June 20, prompting critics of the president to quickly politicize his death.

While tributes to Cain poured in, others used the moment to attack Trump, conservatives or both. Stand Up Republic executive director Evan McMullin used the news to refer to Trump rallygoers as a “science denial Trump cult.”
“Herman Cain was hospitalized for coronavirus two weeks after he attended Trump’s Tulsa rally without a face mask. He’s the first senior casualty of the science denial Trump cult. The question is whether even that can wake others up about the dangers of Trump and the virus,” McMullin wrote.
CNN’s Ana Navarro-Cardenas said, “Covid doesn’t care about partisanship.”

American Independent editor Kaili Joy Gray and actress Mia Farrow both bluntly stated that Trump “killed” Cain.
Meanwhile, a plethora of pundits were careful not to say anything controversial while reminding followers Cain attended Trump’s Tulsa rally.
