[COMMENTARY] Herman Cain’s Twitter Account Gets Ratioed For Mask Tweet

After Herman Cain died at the end of July from the coronavirus, many people wondered if that would change the minds of the more skeptical members of the Cult of Trump, who vehemently oppose mask regulations and stay home orders. Cain famously attended Trump’s Tulsa rally and did not wear a mask. Three weeks later, the rally was deemed a superspreader event after several outbreaks were recorded around the state. Several of Trump’s staffers were forced to quarantine as a result of attending the event. However, Herman Cain was hospitalized soon after returning from Tulsa, and while he had recovered from cancer, the coronavirus was listed as his official cause of death.

Soon after his passing, his Twitter account was taken over by a group who call themselves “The Cain Gang“, which is comprised of various members of his former staff. They made the dubious announcement via Twitter.

Apparently, Twitter-savvy wasn’t a requirement to work for Herman Cain. On Friday, The Cain Gang tweeted a link to an article regarding a man being removed from a library for refusing to wear a mask. “It’s time for the obsessive mask-wearing to wear off” the tweet read.

Twitter was quick to remind the Cain Gang about why they’re tweeting on behalf of Herman Cain these days.


The Cain Gang have gotten themselves into Twitter hot water before, tweeting an attack on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris barely two weeks after Cain’s death. Inexplicably, the account has also tweeted misinformation about the very disease that killed Cain.

And just in case The Cain Gang decides to delete the obtuse tweet, here’s the screenshot, because the internet is forever and the receipts are legion.
