FLASH POLL: Should Adam Schiff RESIGN?
CNN political commentator Keith Boykin suggested earlier today that the brush fire which threatened the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library was divine retribution for the 40th president’s supposed sins.
For those who think God punishes sinners with natural disasters. https://t.co/KnoCfaE6dM

Boykin previously served President Bill Clinton as a White House aide.
The conflagration got within hundreds of yards of the library, which contains millions of historic documents besides being the resting place of President Reagan and his wife, Nancy.
WND’s Joe Kovacs reports:
Boykin’s comment was immediately pounced on by talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.
“So Reagan’s a sinner obviously,” Limbaugh said on his national broadcast Wednesday. “Why? He’s a conservative. He sinned against the left-wing state by opposing it.”
A mandatory evacuation was ordered by the Ventura County Fire Department for the region that included the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, which was closed for the day Wednesday.
Reagan Library Executive Director John Heubusch told FOX11 the blaze was “circling the library” and that fire crews are “fighting it as best they can.”
Eventually, round-the-clock helicopters swooped in, battling 60-miles-per-hour winds to unleash a torrent of water so great it created its own rainbow and saved the library.
