‘Let me just say this, I could have been more careful with the use of my words, and there are times that you need to reevaluate’

Gutiérrez Regrets Attacking Kelly’s Honor: ‘I Could Have Been More Careful With My Words’ (The Washington Free Beacon)

Democratic Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.) suggested Monday that he regrets his recent attacks against White House chief of staff John Kelly, saying he "could have been more careful" with his words.

CNN host Alisyn Camerota asked Gutiérrez whether he "regrets" calling Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, a "hypocrite who is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear."

Gutiérrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, lashed out at Kelly shortly after the Trump administration rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program earlier this month.
