Even after dying of COVID, Herman Cain’s Twitter says COVID isn’t so deadly

Herman Cain's Twitter account has been tweeting even in his death in support of President Donald Trump and against Trump's detractors.

The mysterious case of Herman Cain‘s Twitter took a weirder turn after the deceased politician’s account tweeted the link to a story about how the coronavirus is apparently not as deadly as feared.

Cain died at the age of 74 from complications of the coronavirus on July 30. While he was alive, he was a fierce critic of protocols intended to keep people safe and it would seem even in his death, the managers of his Twitter account are not relenting.

“It looks like the virus is not as deadly as the mainstream media first made it out to be,” tweeted @THEHermanCain on August 31 with a link to a story. But the tweet has since been deleted.

Cain’s family and staff are now managing the account they have renamed “The Cain Gang”. On August 11, his daughter, Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo said Cain “would have wanted us to do this. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

In the weeks following his death, Cain’s Twitter has been tweeting on issues with links to largely conservative-friendly sites as well as his own. The account has also remained supportive of President Donald Trump and derisive of Trump’s critics.

Cain was a Republican presidential nominee hopeful during the 2012 election cycle. He was a front-runner until his popularity waned due to accusations of sexual impropriety by a number of women.

He was a successful businessman who diverted into mainstream politics from around 2010. At the time of his death, Cain was the co-chair of the Black Voices for Trump for the 2020 election.
