On Thursday Ben Shapiro responded to what he called the “ugly” reaction from some strongholds that were prominent to the death of Herman Cain by COVID-19.
“He was a 74-year-old survivor of Stage 4 colon cancer,” said host “Ben Shapiro Show,” and people are getting soaked on Cain on Twitter because, of course, he attended to President Trump’s demonstration in Tulsa less than two weeks before he was diagnosed with COVID 19. “
Cain did not wear a mask at the indoor event on June 20th. Eleven days later, Cain was hospitalized after testing positive for coronavirus.

“This is a thought for many on the left … because of course if someone whose policy you don̵7;t like dies from COVID, then you get stuck on them … that’s basically the way the world works. our garbage, “added Shapiro.
While saluting Cain erupted as word of his death began to spread early Thursday, others used the moment to attack Trump and his supporters. Stand Up Republic executive director Evan McMullin used the news to refer to Trump rallygoers as a “cult denial of Trump’s science.”
“Herman Cain was hospitalized for coronavirus two weeks after attending the Trump Tulsa rally without a face mask. It’s the first old casualty of Trump’s denial of science denial. The question is whether even this could raise others about the dangers of Trump and the virus, “McMullin wrote.
Ana Navarro-Cardenas, a CNN contributor said, “Covid doesn’t care about partisanship.”

Shapiro called the response “ugly things” and “very bad news” and claimed there was “no evidence” that Cain was first infected with the virus during the Tulsa rally.
“The kind of shipping on people after they die from COVID is pretty gross,” Shapiro told listeners.

“Here’s the reality,” he continued. “There are a lot of people dying of this who were wearing masks and have been paying attention and there are a lot of people in the media who have been quite, we can say, a knight about the activities that people have and shouldn’t engage in, until and including mass demonstrations, as long as they are for public purposes that so many of our elite love.
“So,” Shapiro concluded, “save some of the crocodile tears on behalf of people who aren’t really happy with Herman Cain’s policy.”
