“First we make our choices. Then our choices make us.”
— Anne Frank
Hearing that one-time GOP Presidential candidate, former Fed board possibility and Jefe de Pizza Herman Cain being hospitalized for COVID-19 didn’t surprise me much.
So, my immediate thought recalled the tweet Cain sent from from the cull’rd section of Trump’s June 20 Tulsa rally — maskless, socially reclaiming close quarters with others in the midst of the pandemic that America has yet to control …
None of those elements looked like they could drive a successful outcome and I barked at the photo: “His old shucky-ducky backside has no business inhaling Rona fumes in an arena … !”
So, the Shucky-Ducky Man’s people shared a dreary tweet yesterday about his COVID-19 diagnosis.
You can tell Cain’s social media people are amateurs for writing such despair-laden copy — y’know, especially given his previous defiance.
The team fixed the last tweet — since they couldn’t delete it given the hundreds of people who had already responded — by pulling off another amateur move: Quickly post a warrior-styled tweet about how Cain is facing the virus head-on.
Tulsa wasn’t the first time Cain didn’t take the current public health protocols seriously. A pandemic-doubting narrative doesn’t have an azz, but Cain seemed eager to find and kiss it anyway.
Like the time “the people” — and presumably Cain — were fed up with masks.
The time when he doubted the coronavirus would reach the United States.
Yeah, I’m triflin’. I embedded the video.
There was the fascinating piece he wrote that equated the shelter-in-place measures taken by state and local governments against coronavirus with test runs for socialism.
And that strange rant about COVID-19’s second wave, as if he didn’t know we still haven’t reached the intermission part of the first.
I hope he recovers. There’s only one human being on this earth who I’d be tempted to wish they have a slow dance with Rona, and I still never made that wish. Besides, Cain’s podcasts are entertaining.
Still, his followers — for the sake of living — should listen to folks with more health creds than the next-to-zero Cain has …
