Entertainer and activist Rosie O’Donnell said Randy “Iron Stache” Bryce will represent Wisconsin soon after House Speaker Paul Ryan retires “in hell.”

The Badger State will soon have a 53-year-old union ironworker from the Democratic Party in Mr. Ryan’s House seat if Ms. O’Donnell’s political instincts ring true. The former talk show host, who now sells artwork lampooning President Trump in her spare time, made the prediction during a stroll along the streets of New York.

“He’s going to go straight to hell. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200,” she told entertainment website TMZ. “The ‘Iron Stashe’ is coming in to take his seat.”

Ms. O’Donnell previously called Mr. Ryan a “fake altar boy” who would go “straight to hell” in a social media rant over Christmas.

Paul Ryan — don’t talk about Jesus after what u just did to our nation — u will go straight to hell,” she wrote. “U screwed up fake altar boy. #JUDASmuch.”

Mr. Bryce, a military veteran, will run in a district that Mr. Ryan never secured by fewer than 55 points.

“We pushed him out,” Mr. Bryce said Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reported. “The repeal part is done now and we have to work just as hard now with the replace part.”

Kevin Seifert, Mr. Ryan’s campaign leader, called the Democrat’s claim “laughable” while citing the Republican’s high favorability in his district, the Tribune reported.
