Legendary businessman and former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has reportedly passed at the age of 74 amid what has been a month-long battle with the coronavirus.

“Cain, who recently joined Newsmax TV and was set to launch a weekly show, died in an Atlanta-area hospital where he had been critically ill for several weeks. He was admitted on July 1, two days after being diagnosed with COVID-19,” Newsmax confirmed Thursday morning.

His death comes three days after his team posted a tweet announcing that he was “still in the hospital being treated with oxygen for his lungs” and that otherwise “doctors say his organs and systems are strong.”

It’s still unclear where Cain, a former Godfather’s Pizza CEO who reportedly survived stage 4 colon cancer, caught the virus from.

“Ten days before, Cain had attended a rally for President Donald Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But it is not known for sure where Cain, chair of Black Voices for Trump, was infected. He had been on a whirlwind travel schedule in June, stopping in multiple cities,” Newsmax noted.

Within literal seconds of the news of his death emerging, so did the unquenchable hatred from the left-wing side of the political aisle.

Recall all the love that was offered to far-left CNN host Chris Cuomo from conservatives of all stripes, including Cain, after he announced his coronavirus diagnosis in March.

Unfortunately, though not surprisingly given the radicalization of the modern left, liberal Democrats had very little love to share with Cain.

Instead, they rushed to politicize the matter, with one Democrat candidate claiming without evidence that Cain’s “dead because of that stupid Oklahoma rally.”

It’s always #OrangeManBad, of course …


Other liberal Democrats kept it even less classy, believe it or not.

Look (*Language warning):

The left’s finest, ladies and gentlemen …

For actual tributes to Cain, you can look to his website, where editor-in-chief Dan Calabrese has penned a poignant piece.

“I want you to understand just what our world has lost today. There aren’t many people like Herman Cain, and it behooves us to truly cherish the ones we’re given. His wife Gloria – his children Melanie and Vincent – and his grandchildren . . . they need our love, our support and our prayers. Nothing I talked about above meant as much to him as these wonderful people did, and because he loved them so much, we will continue to feel his impact on the world through them,” the piece reads.

You can also look to the moving words of his former aide, Ellen Carmichael.


R.I.P., Mr. Cain.
