Guess Who Just Blamed Trump For Herman Cain’s Death? Yes, This Really Happened

(Right Country) – Aaaaand Herman Cain’s death has been politicized.

That was fast.

On Thursday, Cain, conservative firebrand and businessman, passed away at the age of 74 after battling the coronavirus.

As Newsmax reported in their obituary:

He was admitted on July 1, two days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

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.

It wasn’t long before someone saw fit to try to politicize Cain’s tragic passing.

Like, less than a few hours after the news broke.

It came from Evan McMullin, the former CIA operative and 2016 presidential candidate, who pinned Cain’s passing on the “science denial Trump cult.”

Right, it totally wasn’t due to a novel virus that does pose an acute risk to those over 65.

As Breitbart News explains:

McMullin is a key figure in the “Never Trump” movement, a small faction of establishment Republicans who continued to oppose Donald Trump’s candidacy after he won the Republican nomination in 2016. McMullin ran an unsuccessful third-party campaign in the 2016 general election.

After Trump won the presidency, McMullin pushed the Russia collusion conspiracy theory, and defended intelligence agents who were leaking information about Trump to the media.

“I’ll tell you what their concerns are,” McMullin told CNN. “There concerns are that Donald Trump presents a threat to the country because of his — what they see as his relationship with Vladimir Putin and the relationship of his team to other Russian intelligence officers.”

They also note that Cain, like Trump, sought the presidency as a businessman and political outsider.

However, his campaign was derailed by allegations of sexual harassment from over a decade prior.

  1. Breitbart news has gone left, and their reporting is now one sided.
    Herman Cain had underlying condictions, and getting the virus 10 days after a Trump rally is not the reason he is dead.
    It’s time for reporters to report the news, not modify to their political beliefs.
    An honorable man has died, don’t politicize the reason. Honor him as you did Jon Lewis.

  2. I am so disgusted that a good man like Mr Cain can not pass and his greatness be acknowledged and given the praise he deserved…instead….his death is made into a cheap political accusation against our President. SHAME SHAME SHAME !!! GOD Bless Mr Cain and May He RIP !!!! Prayers for his family and friends !!!

  3. McMullen sounds like he has a very bad case of sour grapes. That and he sounds like an idiot. So President Trump has a relationship with the Russians. As the saying goes “ keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer” you have to know your enemies to anticipate their actions.

  4. Herman Cain was a great man. He achieved a lot in his lifetime and overcame many obstacles. RIP and prayers for his family and friends.

    • Gail – agreed – any bets he won’t even get 5% of as much lionization/attention as johnlewis did. IOW he will be mostly ignored since he wasn’t the flamboyant character that other guy was.

  5. The Democrats are without a doubt the stupidest people on earth. I bet if they looked hard enough they could find evidence that Trump ordered the killing of Abraham Lincoln. Why not they blame everything else on him.

  6. The reason he won’t get the respect he deserves because he is a Republican that supported Trump! The fake News will not give him the accolades due him! He was an intelligent man (American) that worked his way to the top!

  7. Who rattled your cage??? You showed how stupid you were in your attempt to defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 primary. Just take your meds for that STAGE 4 TDS and go back to sleep.

  8. Herman Cain a true Patriot, a great loss to all black people who need a voice of sanity against the constant “Democrap” piffle that only “Democraps” know what’s best for them.

  9. Evan McMullen is an ignorant, pathetic, dolt! Shame on him for dishonest, disrespectful, smears on Herman Cain, a great American Patriot! Herman, we love you! RIP!

  10. Herman Cain was a role model for many who displayed many qualities that we can all emulate. He wasn’t a part of any alleged “toxic culture” but he stood head and shoulders above the others as an icon who fought for justice, fairness and balance for everyone. We should all remember Mr. Cain with love and gratitude for a man who marched a straight path following his own beliefs. We should remember his many accomplishments by not politicizing his passing which is the tactic of self-serving men who lack grace and manners.
