Sorry Ben. Truth hurts. Don't be a snowflake.

If Herman stayed home, social distanced, and wore a mask - he wouldn't be dead today.

Following Trump and the GOP's instructions is what killed him.

^^^ you’re an idiot

GOP Chairman Richard Steele said...

"Look, Herman Cain was a buddy of mine. I appreciated every moment I got to spend with him and my heart goes out to him and his family for this loss.”

“The reality of it is for those who don’t think this is serious, that those who think this is some made-up China virus that was imported into the country,” said Steele.

“You know, live in that bubble and you will die in that bubble. And that’s all that can be said.”

“Folks, we cannot, we cannot stop you from being stupid. We put the information out there. We’ve tried to educate and inform. We’ve got the best and brightest scientists in the country that have been summarily dismissed by this administration and particularly this president.”

Steele couldn’t “help your stupidity at this point, that’s your risk, it won’t be mine. So, my heart goes out to the fallen who’ve not listened. But at the same time, for those who are, take care. Wear the damn mask.”

Herman Cain died because he was a moron. He belied the Rona was a hoax and tweeted about it. He stupidly failed to wear a mask and publicly mocked those who did. He deserved to get it and die. I hope Louie Gomert follows suit. Being a willfully stupid Trumpkin kills.

People ignored the great plague of London too. Acted like it wasnt there. They died of course. Take the virus seriously, even take the flu seriously. One girl went to a coronavirus "party" and then died of it. Thats needless. Think of the virus in a different way - think of it as invisible poison that spreads on surfaces - you touch it and your sick or maybe will die. Viruses are not a living organism as they cannot reproduce. Its more of a protein chemical.
