Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson sparred with Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz Thursday after the senator labeled the Jan. 6 Capitol riot a “violent terrorist attack” on the Senate floor.

Carlson confronted Cruz over his remarks made at a Senate Rules Committee hearing with U.S. Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger on the eve of the Capitol riot’s one-year anniversary. The Texas senator called the Jan. 6, 2021, incident “a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol” and honored law enforcement officials’ “incredible courage.”

“You never use words carelessly and yet you called this a terror attack when by no definition was it a terror attack. That’s a lie. You told that lie on purpose and I’m wondering why you did,” Carlson said.

“The way I phrased things yesterday, it was sloppy and it was frankly dumb—” Cruz said.
