The second wave of coronavirus is fully upon us these days, and there is no doubt that this illness is going to take some of the greats from us…that’s just what viral pandemics do.
This is unlike anything we’ve seen before in America, and we can only hope that it’s also the last.
On Thursday, these rumors and rampant speculation culminated in some horrific news.
Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate and affable business magnate, died Thursday after being hospitalized for coronavirus.
Cain, 74, first went to an Atlanta hospital for treatment on July 1, his staff had said.
His death was announced on Herman Cain’s website and Facebook page.
“Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away,” the statement on his website said, noting there were “hopeful indicators” in recent days that he’d recover but adding: “And yet we also felt real concern about the fact that he never quite seemed to get to the point where the doctors could advance him to the recovery phase.”
Cain’s diagnosis, which came seven days after attending the Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has become a sticking point for the liberal left who have been using this tragic news to push their own agenda.
