In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Herman Cain hospitalized with coronavirus after attending Trump Tulsa rally

It’s not clear where he caught it. But what is clear to me is that holding an indoor rally without social distancing amid the coronavirus was a bad idea. And it ought to stop.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Herman Cain tested positive for the coronavirus and was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending President Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Cain, a 74-year-old former pizza business CEO and presidential candidate, was diagnosed with the virus on Monday, and his symptoms necessitated hospitalization by Wednesday, according to a statement he put out on social media. He spent the night in an Atlanta-area hospital and on Thursday was “resting comfortably” while “awake and alert.”

The Newsmax television contributor did not need a respirator, the statement noted.

“There is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus, but we do know he is a fighter who has beaten Stage 4 cancer. With God’s help, we are confident he will make a quick and complete recovery,” it read.

Cain was in attendance at Trump’s rally in Tulsa on June 20. He shared a photo of himself surrounded by other people, none of whom were social distancing or wearing masks.

  1. Funny that no one strenuously objected to thousands of people driving into urban areas, milling around and mingling for hours, breathing heavily while BurnLootMurdering.

    I hope to protect the President and citizens, the big rallies stop or they be held with social distancing and easy to access opportunities to view them online. The count of people who watch is as important as those who are able to attend.

  2. Sorry. Keith, but I haven’t fallen into the left’s trap of the deadliness of the Chinese virus. Masks when in large crowds, yes; social distancing, no.

    The chance of surviving the virus in my county is 99.997%. Chance of getting it is .05%.

  3. Counting ‘everything’ as Covid, placing sick people in nursing homes, and not looking at the total numbers, not buying any of it.

    Masks and social distancing were to flatten the curve — healthy people should be out and about and fully functioning in society. Unhealthy people should be at home (or for those that are not aged – for some/many – eating right etc etc etc and become healthy.) Eight years ago I stopped eating on a schedule, thought before I ate — you really are not likely to die if you go more than 4 hours without eating — happens every night — Anyway – dropped 30 pounds in about a month without a single trip to the gym or anything.

    The point is that healthy people have to shoulder the burden here and it is asking a lot of us — so when some of these people go on disability at a young age, I will likely be working and paying into the system at 67 or whatever the age is that I can retire — and then as you are going around in the supermarket (don’t get me going on the processed crap I see in your basket of your motorized cart) I have to be harassed by you for not wearing a mask?!?!?!?

    It’s a flu like virus…happens all the time. Most people survive. Some unhealthy people don’t and most healthy people do.

    Remember – most Covid deaths are in the aged category anyway.

    The whole thing we are living seems like a sick version of the childhood story of the Emperor Has No Clothes — and we are all just stupidly playing along
