BREAKING NEWS: Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has died of COVID-19, according to the Daily Mail.
His death occurred several weeks after he attended a Donald Trump rally while not wearing a mask. After testing positive for the virus, 74-year-old Cain was being treated in an Atlanta hospital where he eventually passed away. Cain was at high-risk of dying from the virus because of his age. He is also a cancer survivor.
He tweeted a photo of himself in the stands at Trump’s Tulsa rally with the caption, “Here’s just a few of the #BlackVoicesForTrump at tonight’s rally! Having a fantastic time!”
Cain had traveled to multiple cities in June–his staff is unsure where he contracted the virus.
While the conservative world is mourning Cain, the response from leftists on Twitter has been more mixed; some are even celebrating Cain’s death.
