Fox News' Tucker Carlson once again verbally attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday night, belittling the lawmaker's terrifying description of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot as "narcissism on parade."

Earlier this week, Ocasio-Cortez detailed the fear she felt when supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6, revealing that at one point she thought she would be killed.

But Carlson - who has previously called Ocasio-Cortez a "moron" and the "Kim Kardashian of Congress" and who frequently twists her comments - mocked her for "yammering on about the only subject she cares about: herself."

"Wallowing around in 'lake me' like it's interesting to anyone but her," the prime-time personality said. "Narcissism on parade, the perfect symbol of a culture dying from self-involvement."

"People will believe this crap. Some already do. Anyone who was physically present at the Capitol that day knows it's ridiculous. There were no rioters in Sandy Cortez's hallway," he continued, using his favored derogatory nickname for Ocasio-Cortez. "Trump voters weren't trying to kill her, neither were other U.S. senators."

Carlson then tried to paint the violence by pro-Trump supporters, which left five people dead, as mostly being "an intraparty struggle" aimed at GOP leaders who were "likely in graver danger" than Democrats.

Ocasio-Cortez earlier on Wednesday debunked claims made by right-wing trolls and echoed by Carlson to his millions of viewers that she was not in the U.S. Capitol during the riot.

It was "the latest manipulative take on the right," she tweeted:
