Fox News host Geraldo Rivera compared Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) to flat-earthers for insisting that the 2020 presidential election may have been stolen from former President Donald Trump.

In a tweet on Sunday, Rivera lashed out at the two Republican senators.

"Election Deniers-who really believe 2020 was stolen-are lost causes," he wrote on Twitter. "I feel sorry for them, but they’ve decided the world is flat."

"Much worse: those who know better but support the Big Lie anyway," he added. "Like TedCruz and Josh Hawley. Everything they say should jam the bulls--t filter."
