Ben Shapiro reacted on Thursday to what he called an “ugly” reaction of some prominent experts to the death of Herman Cain from the film COVID-19.
“He was a 74-year-old grade 4 colon cancer survivor,” said the Ben Shapiro Show host, “and people on Cain are dunking on Twitter because he apparently attended President Trump’s meeting in Tulsa for less than two weeks. before he is diagnosed with COVID 19. “
Cain did not have a mask at the internal event on June 20. Eleven days later, Cain was hospitalized after a positive coronavirus test.

“This is the reason for many for the left … because if someone whose policy you don̵7;t like dies of COVID, then you get wet on them … that’s basically the way our garbage world works,” Shapiro added. .
While tribute to Cain was poured as his word of death began to spread in early Thursday, others used the moment to attack Trump and his supporters. Stand Up Republic CEO Evan McMullin used reports to label Trump rallygoers as a “Trump denying science.”
“Herman Cain was hospitalized for coronaviruses two weeks after taking part in Tulsa’s Trump role without a face mask.” He is the first senior victim of Trump’s cult denial of science. The question is whether it can wake up others about the dangers of Trump and the virus, “wrote McMullin.
CNN contributor Ana Navarro-Cardenas said: “Covid doesn’t care about membership.”

Shapiro called the response “ugly things” and “very, very bad news,” arguing that there was no “evidence” that Cain had been infected with the virus for the first time at a meeting in Tulsa.
“The kind of dunkding on people after they died of COVID is pretty brutal,” Shapiro told the audience.

“Here’s the reality,” he continued. “There are a lot of people who are dying, wearing masks and being careful. There are many people in the media who have been, say, cavaliers about activities that people should and should not be involved in, except for mass rallies, including if they are intended for public purposes, which have so many of our elites.
“So,” Shapiro concluded, “I will save some crocodile tears on behalf of people who are not really happy with Herman Cain’s policy.”
