If he'd exhibited a scintilla of contrition, maybe I would too......

Instead, until literally hours before his death and indeed throughout his hospitalization, his social media team was tweeting nonsense about the coronavirus.

How many people listened to him and got themselves sick? We'll never know, there are a sea of people just like him protecting Donny's madness at literally all costs. And of course it's the dead people's "individual choice" whether to listen, but figures like Cain wield tremendous influence over people's thoughts and he used that influence to further widespread death. To further it on behalf of--and indeed via his death, in total servility to--the outright fascist who brought America to this lowest of states via these same conspiracy theories, bad faith manipulations of fact, and outright falsehoods.

It's sad another man died. It's sadder that tens of thousands have died alone, scared, without their adult children nearby. Or without their parents, siblings, spouses/SOs. Overwhelmingly as a result of the failures of a man, politics, and means of public engagement Cain championed until his death.
