Former President candidate and former CEO of Godfather’s pizza, Herman Cain, has passed away after a month long battle with the coronavirus. Cain’s last public appearance was Donald Trump’s Tulsa rally.
“We knew when he was first hospitalized with COVID-19 that this was going to be a rough fight,” said a post on his website, via The Daily Beast. “He had trouble breathing and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. We all prayed that the initial meds they gave him would get his breathing back to normal, but it became clear pretty quickly that he was in for a battle.”
He tested positive for the virus two weeks after attending the Tulsa rally, though his team said that there was “no way of knowing where he contracted the virus.” Herman Cain was also an anti-masker.
Herman Cain's death is tragic. Every death from COVID is tragic. This was preventable by a proactive government that centers the health and safety of the public and trusts medical experts. The government we have has failed us. This White House has failed us. We are all at risk.— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) July 30, 2020
RIP Herman Cain.
