Herman Cain’s Twitter account is still tweeting, more than two weeks after the former Republican presidential candidate died from coronavirus.

Cain died at 74 years old on July 30 after being hospitalized with coronavirus. His official Twitter account, now with the name “The Cain Gang,” has since regularly tweeted or retweeted criticism against Democrats, particularly against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his pick for vice president, Kamala Harris.

For instance, on Thursday, Cain’s Twitter tweeted “Harris has a ton of baggage and a political glass jaw. She’s awful.”

 

That same day, it tweeted that The Cain Gang “consists of different writers who have their own opinions. We all lean right, but we’re also individuals. Each piece reflects the opinions of that writer. That’s how Herman wanted it to work.”

Cain’s daughter, Melanie Cain Gallo, wrote in a post on his website on Tuesday that Cain “believed in using his voice to teach, enlighten and give hope. It’s one of the ways he used this web site every day, and he wouldn’t have wanted that work to stop with his passing.”

“We’ve decided here at Cain HQ that we will go on using this platform to share the information and ideas he believed in,” Gallo wrote. “He often talked about the site going on once he was ready to step away from it. We had hoped he could enjoy reading it in his retirement, but he made it clear he wanted it to go on.”

Cain tested positive for coronavirus 11 days after attending President Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma in June without wearing a mask. Two days after testing positive, he tweeted that “People are fed up” with masks and praised Trump’s decision not to require them at an Independence Day event at Mount Rushmore. The tweet has since been deleted.
