The former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has stuck a fork in Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s career.

His “political career is over but for a miracle because he has so disrespected the will of the people,” said Palin.

“As the leader of the GOP, the convention, certainly he is to remain neutral, and for him to have already come out and say who he will not support was not a wise decision of his,” Palin told CNN during an interview.

“I think Paul Ryan is soon to be ‘Cantored,’ as in Eric Cantor,” Palin said in reference to the former Republican House majority leader who was ousted in an upset.

Palin also spoke out about Ryan’s future as a politician saying “if the GOP were to win now, that wouldn’t bode well for his chances in 2020, and that’s what he’s shooting for.”

Palin said that she will be supporting Paul Ryan’s primary rival, Paul Nehlen, and “will do whatever [she] can” to help him.

While Ryan has yet to back Trump, he hasn’t ruled it out completely. He told CNN, “I’m just not ready to do that at this point.”

“Most everybody has endorsed me other than Paul Ryan. I don’t know what went wrong there,” Trump said at a a recent rally.

Trump’s been vocal about the lack of support from Ryan, even posting a series of tweets about it on his Twitter account.
