More hubris justly rewarded: Herman Cain hospitalized 11 days after Trump rally (and his tweet)

    Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain hospitalized with Covid-19

    “Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump,” Cain tweeted. “PEOPLE ARE FED UP!”

    "Last month, Cain attended Trump’s much-hyped rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the kickoff event for the president’s reelection bid after the coronavirus pandemic forced him off the campaign trail for months.

    Critics, including local public health officials, had urged Trump to postpone the rally, warning that hosting a large gathering of people could spread the disease.

    Cain posted a photograph of himself at the June 20 rally sitting in close proximity to other attendees, none of whom appeared to be wearing masks, as many health officials currently advise."


    I wonder how his "Freedom" is doing while confined to a hospital? Why is he listening to so-called "experts" (Soros/Gates-funded liars) at the hospital who don't know anything other than fake news? He should just leave. Or maybe he's not fed up with the hospital yet? Or maybe he just doesn't care about freedom all that much and enjoys being confined? Hard to tell, he hasn't said anything yet...

    covid19 is by far some of the best evidence god exists, and that he loves irony.

    I hate to admit that I laughed. I know, I’m a terrible person.... I do hope he recovers to be yet another cautionary tale.

    This is actually pretty disturbing. I didn't really care about Cain's run for Prez a few years back but the man shouldn't have to suffer the kind of pain he's probably in right now. I mean, when you end up in the hospital it's pretty bad.

    I hope he avoids going on a ventilator. I recall hearing some dire statistic indicating how rare it is to come OFF the ventilator once one goes on it. We had a nephew years ago who contracted SARS and came really, really close to dying at age 20. This stuff is nothing to mess with.

    I know of 2 people (both indirectly, relatives of my friends), neither very old (i believe early 50's and mid 60's) that have been on ventilators and lived. I'm not sure how much permanent damage they've suffered, but one was on a ventilator for about 4 weeks - it was definitely looking pretty grim, but he pulled through. A third i know is still on a ventilator. He's also much younger (30s).

    And then he didn't wear one even though they were provided at the rally.

    I’m kind of divided. On one hand, I don’t want the man to get hurt or die. At the same time, it’s hard to muster sympathy for someone who put themselves at risk needlessly and suffered the consequences. Mess with fire long enough, you’ll get burned.

    God gave us science to explain how the microscopic world works to understand how diseases and viruses are transmitted. Before, God's people had laws to wash hands under running water and other ordinances related to hygeine, but now we have the knowledge and technology to see why His commands worked. God can change facts and outcomes, but we operate in a world where we are subject to natural laws. The bible supports quarantine. God's people aren't walking in wisdom or using common sense.

    I wouldn't have a problem with him just endangering himself, that's his choice and I would still feel a lot of compassion for him. But he needlessly endangered anyone he came in contact with afterward, including his over 70 yr. old wife and encouraged others to not wear one.

    I will say that after this happened to him Trump is trying to clean up Trump's mess by now saying that people Should wear masks.
    Nothing like closing the barn door after all the horses stampeded out.

    It's hard to talk when you have a breathing tube down your throat going into your lungs or you are placed in a medical coma while a machine oxygenates your blood.

    But you know... Make America Great Again.

    How about convalescent plasma.... but you know, that's in such short supply, and as much as I like Godfathers Pizza, I'm sure there are more worthy individuals who basically didn't decide to temp fate.

    This is also the same Republican Party that forced 1000's of voters in Wisconsin to line up for hours to cast ballots during the Primaries, and are determined to repeat that travesty again in the 2020 Elections to suppress the Democratic vote!

    Meanwhile the President who has made it his mission to make masks a political statement will cast his mail-in ballot, along many of the other Republicans living in Washington - without giving a send thought to the hypocrisy this represents to those that they would condemn to line up to vote during a pandemic!

    A recent study reveals that 33,000 lives could be saved if 94% of Americans wore masks outside the home - apparently that is a price that the President and and his supporters are more than willing to pay - rather than suffer the "indignity" of wearing one!

    Do you have a non-fake news commie socialist Hillary/Soros supporting globalist source? Something legitimate, mainstream and normal like Alex Jones, Breibart, or Rush Limbaugh?
