Democrat Congressman Luis Gutierrez has again challenged White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Previously the Congressman said the gold star recipient and retired four-star general was a “disgrace to the uniform.”
Now, Gutierrez has demeaned Kelly to doing a politician’s work and says he is “not a general.”
Per Fox Insider:
Gutierrez said Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, is “a politician, OK, not a general.”
Gutierrez challenged Trump’s chief of staff’s military status because Kelly no longer wears a military uniform:
“What could be more mean and more vicious than to say ‘you’ve got six months to pack up…and leave the United States’?” Gutierrez asked of Kelly.
Kelly eventually confronted Gutierrez’s previous remark that Kelly was a “disgrace” to the military:

Gutierrez previously called Kelly a “disgrace to the uniform” and a “hypocrite” for siding with “white supremacists enabling the president’s actions” on DACA.
Kelly responded, saying “empty barrels make the most noise.”
“[Congressmen] have the luxury of saying what they want as they do nothing and have almost no responsibility,” Kelly, who served for decades and lost a son in Afghanistan, said.
