Herman Caine, the former GOP presidential candidate who now co-chairs Black Voices for Trump, has been hospitalized in Atlanta for COVID-19. This happens after he posted a photo of himself (below) at the Tulsa rally in which he (and everybody else) ignored CDC social-distancing guidelines.
“Mr. Cain did not require a respirator, and he is awake and alert,” according to the statement released Thursday. “We honestly have no idea where he contracted it. I realize people will speculate about the Tulsa rally, but Herman did a lot of traveling the past week, including to Arizona where cases are spiking. I don’t think there’s any way to trace (what) caused him to be infected. We’ll never know.”
No, we may never know, as there seems to be no contact tracing for the virus. What a shame. But what can you do?
Earlier this week, Cain tweeted about Trump’s upcoming Independence Day celebration at Mount Rushmore, saying there would no social distancing or masks required…. like that was a GOOD thing.
“Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump. PEOPLE ARE FED UP!” Cain wrote.
