      Very sorry to hear this. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago and we got to talk for a couple of minutes. Very nice man. RIP Herman.

        Ah...dammit.
        Herman Cain dies at 74 from coronavirus complications
        The press never disappoints: They're spinning that Cain died because he attended the last Trump rally.

        One of the good guys for sure. This is tough to hear. Prayers for all his family & friends.

        And prayers for the country--losing one of the good ones.

          Yep, that's the spin.

          However, he attended the rally on June 20th and was hospitalized 10 days later. Maybe one of our newly-minted expert virologists can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think you go from initial exposure to the virus to being laid up in the hospital in just 10 days, do you?

          GGG, I am not sure what the timeframe is on that but for chrissake can't they show a little discretion, the guy just died. F these spinmeister cockroaches, they have no respect.

            You're surprised by that?? Frankly I'm impressed that they merely worked a sentence about it into the article, and didn't make it the headline of the story. Uncharacteristic restraint. :rolleyes:

              Here's a better write up on Herman Cain from Western Journal, in contrast to the coprophagous Hill.com narrative.

                In 2006, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer with mets already found in his liver. But he died of corona. Sure.

                  Not surprised, but that doesn't prevent me from saying 'Fuchs em' when I see it.

                    I had the good fortune to hear Mr Cain speak in 2012, and then was afforded the opportunity to meet with him one on one for about 15v minutes- What a great guy, so well read and had a strong Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ

                      You need to send someone back over to "The Slum" and ask the 'experts' over there, because I PROMISE you---they will have the definitive answers. :rolleyes:

                      But be sure whoever you send over to get your answers, tell them from me & wrp....F'em.;)

                        Is she implying what I think she is?? This is dangerous. I hope she keeps her head on a swivel

                          I’m not a virologist, nor have I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. However, I haven’t heard anything like that happening in the military and I sit in multiple weekly briefings, including all DoD info. Typically, 12-14 days to pop positive or display early (not severe) symptoms. Take it for what it’s worth.

                            Right, it was my understanding that there's an incubation period of about 2 weeks before the first symptoms appear.

                            The incubation period is anywhere from 2 to 14 days so yes you could go from exposure to the virus to the hospital in just 10 days. But saying that it doesn’t mean that he contracted the virus at the Trump rally. There is no way to prove that.

                              I used to listen to him on the radio every day while making my rounds. Great man. RIP.
