It takes a special kind of individual (and not the good kind either) to openly and publicly ridicule someone who has passed away.
What kind of a sick, demented and frankly cowardly person would mock the dead? Well, The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur is that kind of person.
On Thursday, businessman and former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain passed away. The 74-year-old’s passing came after he was recently hospitalized with COVID-19.
Cain refused to wear a mask and apparently, nine days after attending President Trump’s June rally in Oklahoma, came down with the virus. Now, did he catch the virus at the rally? We don’t know but the fact remains that the man passed away.
Cain is gone and his family and friends are grieving and hurting. He was a husband and a father. But despite the fact that someone has passed away, apparently for some, using their death to try and score political points is perfectly acceptable.
Is it too hard to ask to put the politics aside at times and try and be an actual human being? For some, the answer to that question is a resounding yes.
