Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) gave former Fox News host Megyn Kelly a badly-needed history lesson after she tried to minimize the seriousness of the Capitol riots which took place on January 6 and left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer.

HuffPost reports that Lieu and Kelly have been engaged in a heated debate on Twitter regarding the Capitol insurrection:

“Kelly, who recently signed a deal with SiriusXM to host a daily talk show, faced sharp criticism earlier this week for insisting the deadly riot ‘wasn’t an insurrection’ and that it was the media that had made it out to be ‘so much worse than it actually was.'”

Lieu also tagged Kelly in a tweet he sent to Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) who has also engaged in revisionist history by calling the Jan. 6 riots a “normal tourist visit.”

Rather than respond with facts, Kelly took the low road, resorting to insults rather than providing facts:

Lieu, however, remained classy, and he thanked Kelly, which made her look even more immature and foolish:

Megyn Kelly is trying to pretend she’s still relevant. But since she can’t manage to keep a gig, it’s clear that Congressman Lieu has more job security than she does. He’s also a hell of a lot better person.
