This is a new low for CNN.
According to the Daily Caller, CNN analyst Joe Lockhart shocked Americans after he stated that Herman Cain had died “making a political statement” about masks.
“Numerous go without a mask to selfishly make a statement at the expense of their colleagues and families. What will it take to make them take it seriously?” CNN’s Cabrera asked.
“And that’s had the effect of, you know, we have Herman Cain who’s passed away, and that’s a tragedy for his family, but he was making a political statement by going to that Tulsa rally, not social distancing and not wearing a mask,” Lockhart said.
He added, “People will really remember the fact that Trump and a lot of the leading Republicans, not all, but a lot of them, really put maybe 30% to 40% of the country at risk, or even at more risk, to make a political point.” You can read the full article here.
