Ann Coulter lit House Speaker Paul Ryan’s hometown on fire in a blistering rebuke of Ryan here on Saturday in which she endorsed Republican businessman Paul Nehlen for Congress. “You got the Nehlen leaving at 2:06 and then the Trump leaving the station. After that happens, there’s not another train coming through.”

“You are so lucky to be living in this district because it’s like we’re standing in the Amtrak train station looking up and there’s only two trains leaving,” Coulter said in a speech just a few city blocks away from Ryan’s mansion here on Saturday. “You got the Nehlen leaving at 2:06 and then the Trump leaving the station. After that happens, there’s not another train coming through. This is it. This is your last chance to save America. Vote for the party of America for Americans and vote for Paul Nehlen.”
“I brought some notes so I could do an imitation of Donald Trump choking out his endorsement last night, reading from his paper,” Coulter said as she took the stage at Nehlen’s rally outside the amphitheater at the Rock County Courthouse. The amphitheater, which packed in about a hundred Nehlen backers to hear Coulter and others speak on Saturday, is downhill from Ryan’s mansion—a large home built by the Parker family of the Parker Pen Company, which was founded here in Janesville but has since moved overseas and no longer operates in this town.
“Paul Ryan said he never wanted to be Speaker of the House, so I’d like to help him achieve that dream,” Coulter said to a cheering crowd. “This year has been a very strange year—I remember when [Mitt] Romney [the failed 2012 GOP presidential nominee] picked Ryan [as his running mate] I was so happy, I was thinking back about it, now I remember I was only happy because he wasn’t [Sen. Marco] Rubio. This year has really shaken things out, you know, former friends are enemies and former enemies are friends.”
