Sad news. He'd been in the hospital since the first of July.

CNBC

HermanCain.com


Former Republican presidential candidate and ex-CEO of Godfather's Pizza Herman Cain, 74, has died almost a month after being hospitalized for coronavirus.



You’re never ready for the kind of news we are grappling with this morning. But we have no choice but to seek and find God’s strength and comfort to deal with it.

Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away. He’s entering the presence of the Savior he’s served as an associate minister at Antioch Baptist Church in Atlanta for, and preparing for his reward.


Cain was diagnosed with Covid after attending Trump's Tulsa rally, where he was photographed without a mask.


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 Cain remained a vocal supporter of Trump’s after his nomination was withdrawn, and he attended the president’s controversial reelection rally in Oklahoma in June, shortly before being diagnosed with the coronavirus.


Covid does not discriminate.

The implication that a Trump Rally killed poor Herman is asinine.

Don't be too sure of that.
I have seen it in the MSM a number of times that Black/Brown people die from COVID at higher rates than (w)hites.

I'm curious to see how MSM & the public treats Herman Cains passing vs how John Lewis has been treated.

That's not the implication, but saying it's the implication is asinine.

It's a fact he attended.

It's also a fact contracted it, somehow.

More ironic.

Anyway, sad for him and his family.

Yeah, I've seen that statistic, but that's another discussion.

The discrimination will be equal. Nobody gets top billing 😎

That is exactly your implication:



Cain was diagnosed with Covid after attending Trump's Tulsa rally, where he was photographed without a mask.


...And thousands who attended DIDN'T get COVID.

He was battling stage 4 colon cancer.

Yeah. That's what the title of the thread says. "With."

But complications from cancer didn't kill him. Complications from Covid did.
