  1. Maybe masks aren’t such a bad idea.

      Moron! Cain was very ill. He DID NOT die from any coronavirus! Same lying, scare-tacic titles every day. Anybody who still believes in this fake c-virus pandemic has low intelligence. The media keeps lying every day to continue this c-virus medical industry/media billion dollar scam and keep you muzzled (masks) and caged (locked in your house). And wearing a (muzzle) mask shows even lower intelligence. Nobody is infected (cases) and nobody has died from any ridiculous, “massively contagious, deadlier than ever-before seen, worldwide instant human killer” covid19 virus. They had or have a cold or normal flu, if they really had anything. And they will keep lying, using scare-tactic images, and exaggerating every report as long as you keep believing them.

    • @adsotbraz Yeah!! And we can conquer all disease and illness by closing all medical facilities and executing all medical personnel!! Nobody has ever died of cancer, heart disease, diabetes complications, respiratory illness, pneumonia complications, stroke, and the list goes on. All these deaths are hoaxes. Cemeteries are fake news. The entire funeral industrial complex is a fraud. Everybody ever born is still alive. Death is a witch hunt!! FV(K yeah!!

    • @adsotbraz Dummy. So it was just a coincidence was it that he died a few weeks after getting Covid?
      Being dumb YET confident is no way to go through life, adsotbraz.
      Stop swallowing and then regurgitating all the fake news you read on the internet.

    • @Proper …Thousands of people have been to Trump rallies. Many of them, just like anywhere else in the world, have illnesses or serious conditions. Just basic statistics say that illnesses or deaths will occur from large statistical groups every week, month, and year. I’m certain that there are many other people who attended Trump rallies in the past 4 years that died shortly afterwards without being infected from a boogeyman virus at his rallies. That’s just basic statistics/probability (which can be studied at every university in America), basic logic, and common sense.
      …Learn some of this common sense and intelligence I’m putting into your head, Champ.

    • @C R … Let me ask you this my good man. When has the entire world ever been shut down, muzzled, and locked up for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or any of the other illnesses you mentioned? And we all know many people who have had those illnesses along with the normal flu. Answer that for me.

      @Shadow Croix … The country was sold to China, Mexico and Canada by Bill Clinton. Any crumbs that were left were sold to Iran by Barack Obama. The country was already gone before Trump took office.

  3. Denying science and being so stupid comes with this. How many people did he spread it to. Dont feel sorry he called for it but feel sorry for those he infected

    • Jules
      Those people have the same mindset good for all of them if they get it this country and the world will be better off!

    • @Bernard M. I totally agree, less people will follow their stupidly, and they will be examples to other fools ( may be not) as they’ve proved stupidity is their middle name

    • You’re right but I can’t help but to feel bad for his family though… After this I don’t blame nobody for the remarks.

  4. gave up his life for donald… what a waste

    Think of how many people took his stupid advice and contracted the virus. RIP.

    • Trump won’t even pay respect to him nor say anything about it. May be if he will it will be the press secretary. He will be thinking he died to ruin his re-election and also to make him feel bad

  6. Steep price to pay to “Own the Libs”

    • I feel so owned. 😎

    • Do show where Trump held a gun to Herman Cain and told him that he better not wear a mask or else? Yeah I didn’t think so lady, the man didn’t want to wear a mask that was on Cain himself…

  7. Last public picture of him alive was taken at the Tulsa Trump rally.

      *Record $135 billion a year for illegal immigration, average $8,075 each, $25,000 in NY*
      Sept 2017 https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/record-135-billion-a-year-for-illegal-immigration-average-8-075-each-25-000-in-ny

      *The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet.*

      And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.

      State and local governments are getting ravaged by the costs, at over $88 billion. The federal government, by comparison, is getting off easy at $45 billion in costs for illegals.

      *Obama’s regulations in 2016 to drain economy by $2 trillion*
      May 31, 2017 https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/may/31/obamas-regulations-in-2016-to-drain-economy-by-2-t/

      *The Obama administration issued a record number of new regulations on its way out the door in 2016, leaving an administrative state that saps the economy of nearly $2 trillion a year, according to a new report being released Wednesday.*

      The government itself spent $63 billion in 2016 to administer and enforce all of its own regulations, the Competitive Enterprise Institute said.
      With Republicans in Washington looking for reasons to streamline Washington and roll back President Barack Obama’s accomplishments, the new report is likely to be ammunition.

      “The federal government’s reach extends far beyond its taxes, deficits, and borrowing. Federal environmental, safety and health, and economic regulations affect the economy by hundreds of billions — even trillions — of dollars annually,” Clyde Wayne Crews Jr. wrote in the CEI’s 2017 “Ten Thousand Commandments” report on federal regulations.

      He counted 3,853 federal rules that were finalized in 2016 — the most for any year since 2005.

      All told, during his time in office, Mr. Obama issued 685 “major” rules — generally defined as having an economic impact of at least $100 million — compared to 505 during President George W. Bush’s tenure, the CEI report said.

      The page count for the Federal Register, which publishes regulations, topped 95,000 new pages in 2016, setting a record, the report said.

      The Department of the Treasury led the way among executive branch agencies by accounting for 469 rules among agency priorities, followed by the Interior, Transportation and Commerce departments and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Financial regulations and federal land use issues in the western part of the U.S. were two big battles during the Obama administration.

      President Trump already has made regulatory reform a key part of his agenda. He ordered the dismantling of Mr. Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which was a push to regulate carbon emissions in the nation’s power plants, and teamed up with Congress to repeal about a dozen last-minute Obama-era regulations.

      But the CEI report said Congress should also bear more responsibility for the “hidden tax” of regulatory costs, which it said gets passed on to consumers to the tune of $15,000 per household.

      For example, rather than vote to create new job training programs — and accept the consequences of adding to the federal deficit — lawmakers can instead pass a law requiring major companies to provide job training under rules they delegate to the Labor Department, Mr. Crews wrote.

      “The latter option would add little to federal spending but would still let Congress take credit for the program,” he wrote. “By regulating instead of spending, government can expand almost indefinitely without explicitly taxing anybody one extra penny.”

      The growth of the so-called “administrative state” has become a major issue in conservative legal circles, with some scholars saying it’s time to push the federal courts to roll back regulatory power and force it back into the hands of Congress.

      Newly installed Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuch drew praise from some conservative circles with his opinion in a case last year in which he said it may be time for the high court to show less deference to regulatory agencies’ decisions.

      On Capitol Hill, Republicans are pushing another solution: fewer regulations all around.

      In January the House passed the REINS Act, which would require Congress to vote on major rules before they can take effect. That legislation hasn’t gone anywhere in the Senate.

      Congress has, however, used the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn a dozen last-minute Obama-era regulations. Previously the tool had been used just once to overturn a Clinton-era rule.

      Democrats have tried to throw up roadblocks to Republicans’ deregulation efforts, saying many rules are intended to protect consumers, notably in the area of financial oversight.

      Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said earlier this month that the recent uses of the CRA were more about helping special interests than rolling back burdensome regulations.

      “They are giveaways to big oil, big gas, big coal, big mining and wealthy special interests,” he said.

      The total federal regulatory cost was $1.963 trillion in 2016, which marked an increase of about $100 billion since 2012, according to Mr. Crews’ analysis.
      Mr. Trump can also order reviews within his own administration, hoping to knock out rules that tie the economy’s hands.

      But White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said it’s not always easy to unwind long-embedded regulations.

      “As we’ve been through the process, what we’ve learned is, it’s not that hard to slow down an agency on creating new regs,” Mr. Mulvaney recently told the Senate Budget Committee. “But when you ask an agency, a bureaucratic agency that is designed to create regs, to start to deregulate themselves … it’s a muscle that they have not used for a long time, if ever.”

      Still, Mr. Obama’s penchant for using regulations as an end run around Congress means some of them are easier to undo now, said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity.

      “Right now we’re seeing enormous progress rolling back the extreme environmental regulations of the Obama years precisely because our side was successful in stopping the extreme environmental legislation during the eight years of Obama,” said Mr. Phillips, whose group lobbies for lower taxes and fewer regulations.

    • @C 12 Where did you get your MD trump University

  11. He sure did “own the Libs” with his mask-less visit to Trump’s little petri-dish party…

    • Despite the warnings, he drank the kool-aid and it killed him. His legacy is now a cautionary tale but the GOP doesn’t believe in caution.

    • @bronxbearbud Fair point, well taken. My comment wasn’t meant to express joy. It’s more like a sort of exhausted befuddlement with the state of things and with the behaviour of some people who should know better.

      @Pink and Black Girl and what entitles you to tell me how I mustreact to and engage the world, especially after you insult me like mr. Trump with some confusing but clearly ridiculing query regarding whether or not I worship witches. If you don’t agree with my point please demonstrate why with reference to that point. I would not tolerate or accept or admire the way Trump evades similar intellectual and moral responsibility regarding his own judgments, why should I accept such treatment from you? Who died and made you Donald Trump

    Of course Fox News turned off the comments on their video about it.

  13. This should be a lesson to the Brothers who want to sell out to the GOP. They don’t care about your lives, or your community, or making things better for Blacks. Cain wanted to be a Blockheaded Brother and sell out to the GOP. and it cost him his life.

  14. i knew at least one person would end up dying as a result of that dumb tulsa rally. and here we are.

      @Logan McLean Trump’s terrible federal response to COVID-19 has led to over 140,000 deaths(the most in the world), the country is facing the worst recession in nearly 100 years and Trump has no plan or vision for a second term….When he was asked what he wanted from a second term, all he did was verbally attack Democrats and whine that nobody likes him 🤦……As I mentioned b4, incumbent Presidents never get re-elected during recessions and most of America is fed up with Trump’s incompetence.

      Well, according to a poll that was correct in 2016, he’s at 49%. If they had it right in 2016, why would I guess they’re wrong in 2020. Plus with the covid situation, majority of Americans blame China, not trump. You guys get mad when he says his power is “total”, yet you blame him 100% for all deaths when it’s the governors who make the calls. Are you gonna blame trump for the 6500 nursing home deaths in New York because cuomo signed a order to put covid patients in nursing homes?? Makes 0 sense

    Foxnews comment section about Herman Cain is shut off wonder why

  18. I’m wondering if they still think it’s a “hoax”.

    • Scott: There are many Americans who still think the virus is a hoax. Older Americans who won’t wear a mask.

    • It is too bad that he was not wearing a mask, otherwise, they would say his mask killed him. Now they have to come up with a new version, like Hillary or Obama, or maybe the illegal immigrants or the worst-case scenario – the aliens.

    • @J A You’d be surprised at what these Trumpanzees can come up with.

  19. Fox disabled they comments. Sad when a narrative cracks.

      Alex Walker 🤣 according to 2019-2020 flu numbers, we’ve had between 39,000,000-56,000,000 flu cases with between 24,000-62,000 deaths. That’s between a 0.06 – 0.11% death rate. The death rate for covid is currently 3.39% (154,000 confirmed deaths of 4,530,000 cases). If your argument is that we aren’t aware of all of the covid cases, well the same could be said for the flu. That’s the thing about science, it isn’t wrong

    • You all misunderstand me. I’m not comparing it to the flu. I’m just saying that the argument will be that old people die from the flu all the time. This death wont change those minds because he was in his mid 70s
