tweets from the dead

Um, Herman Cain died two weeks ago… so why is he bashing Kamala Harris on Twitter?

Well, this is awkward.

Herman Cain, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate who died of COVID-19 after attending Trump’s MAGA rally in Tulsa, has been super busy bashing Kamala Harris on social media two weeks after being laid to rest.

“How well prepared is Kamala Harris for the presidency?” Cain, or someone pretending to be him, posted on Facebook yesterday. “We take a look. We’re not impressed and you won’t be either.”

Then this morning, Cain’s Twitter page posted another attack on Harris, calling her “awful.”

“Harris has a ton of baggage and a political glass jaw,” the tweet read. “She’s awful. Tulsi has already demolished her once. Should she get the chance to do it again?”

Naturally, people have had a lot to say about Cain tweeting from the grave…


USA Today reports that the person responsible for trashing Harris on Cain’s behalf is his daughter, Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo, who explained on her dad’s website that “he wouldn’t have wanted that work to stop with his passing,” and adding that his voice is “needed now more than ever.”

Except that it’s not his voice.

Because he’s dead.
