Herman Cain account tweets COVID-19 ‘not as deadly’ as media says following his death
The social media account of Herman Cain shares information about COVID-19 not being deadly, although he passed from the virus.
After Herman Cain died of COVID-19, his Twitter account continues to share media disregarding the fatal consequences of the novel coronavirus.
In a now-deleted tweet, the account shared an article on Monday with the caption “It looks like the virus is not as deadly as the mainstream media first made it out to be.” The report at hand from The Western Journal explores new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suggesting a majority of COVID-19 patients died of an underlying condition.
According to the account’s bio section, the page is now supervised by family and team of the former GOP presidential candidate. Although he died on July 31 of the coronavirus, this is not the only posthumous tweet about the pandemic.
A blog, published on Cain’s official website was tweeted out, suggesting a “second wave” of coronavirus has not peaked.
The account currently stands at over 500,000 followers. Beyond sharing links to COVID-19 reports, the page regulary tweets political bias from his verified platform.
theGrio reported his daughter Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo expressed her father’s desire to continue spreading his thoughts and beliefs through social media, even after his death, after a tweet critical about Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris garnered attention.
“He would have wanted this platform to continue giving people reasons to feel that hope as we continue to tell you what you need to know about what’s going on in the country,” she wrote.
Shortly before testing positive for COVID-19, the The Godfather’s Pizza CEO attended a rally for President Donald Trump, and was photographed not wearing a mask.
