You can admire Cain for being a self made millionaire, but not much else.

Multiple sexual harassment claims , some of which he settled prove he was a predator.

The reason trump is silent on his death is because he caught the virus at trump’s rally.

The irony.......

I wonder how many more died from attending the moron's rally...

Let this be yet ANOTHER warning of what selfishness and stupidity can lead to. Notice, that the vast majority of politicians who have been infected are Republicans. This is no coincidence. There comes a point where you don't feel any sympathy.

Sadly he wasnt educated enough to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

Multiple sexual harassment claims ,

Well, he was male, rich and became nominally famous in national politics. Anymore it seems if they don't have claims now, they have claims yet to come.

some of which he settled prove he was a predator.

I think you have no idea how even a false claim can disrupt your life, career and reputation. Paying a liar to shut up can really be an attractive option. Of those that fight, few come out as good as Johnny Depp.

Now I am not saying Cain is innocent or even forgivable because I know so little about him. I am just saying none of what was said is nearly enough to bring up against a man who just died.

It is not clear how Cain contracted COVID-19.

I’d say it’s pretty well cut and dried.

The claims predate his entry into politics.

Paying a liar to shut up can really be an attractive option.

Not for someone who is innocent, he has settled 2 of these claims secretly.

Now I am not saying Cain is innocent or even forgivable because I know so little about him.

Then you should not be defending someone you know nothing about!!

Republican senators openly told trump they would vote against him if he given a position in the trump administration, you can imagine how rotten one has to be for republicans to oppose you.

Never want to see someone die of this deadly disease...

But he supported a President that tweeted wearing a mask was "Anti-American", ridiculed his own CDC's safety precautions, and held rallies and events with no social distancing or mandatory mask wear....

Given he likely caught the virus at Trump's Tulsa rally, he gave his life for his Sainted Leader....

Just like the members of Jim Jones cult did in Guyana in 1978...

Like on cigarette packages, there should be a banner above the entrance to Trump's campaign rallies which reads: Warning! Trump Rallies May Be Dangerous To One's Health.

It is not clear how Cain contracted COVID-19.

But, oh, the speculation.
