God doesn't have very good aim
I would not have thought it possible in light of recent events, but Republicans continue to plumb new depths of ignorance and stupidity. An Ohio Republican party chairman has opined that the Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history, was "God’s punishment to liberal California". If that's true, then God needs to update his database: the Camp fire is in California's first congressional district, which is overwhelmingly Republican. Its congressman is a Republican, elected by a 12-point margin. It voted for Donald Trump by an overwhelming 20 point margin. You would be hard pressed to find a more conservative district outside of the deep south.
