American politician and businessman, Herman Cain, passed away July 30th. 

However, his passing did not stop his official Twitter account from tweeting an attack on the Democratic Party’s top national position candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on Wednesday. 

“Just in case you thought Biden’s candidacy was going to be anything other than completely nuts,” the post said. 

“Team Trump has released a new video,” it added. 

Along with the post is a link to an article and a video on Harris and Biden’s Democratic debate. 

Cain’s political tweet on Wednesday is the first since his death. 

The account was mainly posting about memorials and articles remembering the former politician.

Cain, during the last days of his life, had been very vocal about supporting US President Donald Trump in his bid for reelection. 

He was also a candidate in the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. 

He died at the age of 74 after testing positive for COVID-19.

There has been speculation of Cain contracting the virus at the Trump’s Tulsa Rally in June.

People’s Reaction

After the tweet was made public, people are quick to point out how unethical the act is. 

People also questioned the post for being shared even after the politician’s death. 

Some Twitter users resorted to reporting the account. 

One user asked twitter to “disable” it or “strip it of its verification” status because its owner is deceased. 

Randy Rainbow, a comedian and actor, quipped on Cain’s “good WiFi” in the afterlife. 

The Mission Continues

The account changed its Twitter name, from Herman Cain to The Cain Gang, after people’s criticism of using Cain’s name for political gains.

According to its new Twitter description, Cain’s daughter and family are supervising his account now. 

It also says, “the mission continues.”

A post leading to a letter by Cain’s daughter was pinned at the top of his official Twitter account. 

In the letter, Cain’s daughter, Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo, explained “The Cain Gang’s” continuous mission to share “information and ideas,” Cain believed in. 

According to her, Cain wanted his “work to continue.”
