Herman Caín thought Covid was a hoax, scoffed at wearing a mask. Died of Covid.
Bill Montgomery, co-founder of pro-Trump, Turning Point USA, scoffed at virus. Died of Covid.
Rep. Gohmert refused to wear a mask. Has Covid.
See a pattern?
Covid doesn’t care about partisanship.

I’m going to really miss him. Praying for his family in their time of sorrow. He was a great American.

Herman Cain was such a decent human being. He was a total happy warrior too. My guess is he would have laughed off all the haters dancing on his grave. The man was unflappable.

Should Trump be held liable in Herman Cain’s death? Cain was Trumps show piece at the Tulsa Rally. Multiple staffers and Cain tested positive for Covid19 shortly after. Everyone knew it was a bad idea.
Negligence??? Reckless endangerment?@realDonaldTrump #DumpTrump
