Howard Cain tweeted out yesterday:





Cain died of Covid-19 complications in July. His account is being run by family and social media managers.

Cue Alanis singing "Ironic"... and the arrogance of them not realizing how insane this is...

Life is an underlying condition.

Obesity is one of the underlying conditions that makes you susceptible to covid. There are a whole lot of Americans with a BMI over 30 — 42.4% which is about 140 million people and if you add to that the cancers, HBP, heart disease, diabetes, etc of all who have a BMI under 30, well, let’s just say what’s left is definitely the smallest wedge of the pie. Yeah, it’s real comforting to hear these tweets from someone who died of covid.

Is that really Herman Cain’s account or someone with a similarly named account trolling?

The little brother of a friend of mine was one of the early Covid victims. He was in his late 50’s and a hearty guy, but a little heavy, so he had adult onset diabetes, as do about a quarter of older people. Other than that, he was fine, as far as I know. I don’t think he was on insulin. He and his wife enjoyed showing dogs - he told my friend, his big brother he thought he actually picked up the virus at a dog show.

He was okay at first, then had trouble breathing...eventually in ICU, but was improving, but then developed blood clots in his legs (before they knew Covid patients were prone to this) and died of a pulmonary embolus.

Per this latest right-wing meme, he doesn’t count as a Covid death - he doesn’t matter.

I’ll tell you, he mattered. He mattered to his wife, who went on the local news (again, early on) and said, you may think it can’t happen to you, but it can.

How many people actually died of AIDS?

You die of "complications due to AIDS" not AIDS itself.

This is like saying no one ever died of AIDS.

SARS-CoV-2 has several long term affects. People may recover but end up with life long disabilities (heart, lung, kidney).

It's his account. His wife or kids or somebody is posting to it. They claim it's okay because they say the things he would want to say.

So next they will post, “That COVID19 was tough but it doesn’t bother me anymore.”

I have a friend who is pharmacist in Arizona. He said many of his customers who recovered from Covid suddenly were type 1 diabetics after recovery.

No, but Lincoln's account is warning that it's too soon to open the theatres.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

“At the time, the account still bore Cain’s name and photograph. It looked as if the man himself had tweeted. He began trending, with outrage appearing alongside the many “Weekend at Bernie’s” jokes.
“Come on @Twitter @jack!” tweeted journalist Lois Romano, referring to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. “You’re ok with dead people attacking others?”

The account soon changed its name to the Cain Gang and changed its bio to “Official Twitter for Team Cain. Formerly run by Herman Cain, now supervised by his team and family. The mission continues.”
