After White House chief of staff John Kelly made a series of divisive remarks about immigrants, a former Naval officer and current intelligence analyst slammed the four-star general.

"They don’t integrate well," Kelly said of undocumented immigrants, deriding their education levels and claiming they "don’t have skills."

Malcolm Nance, an MSNBC military analyst, tweeted Kelly's comments were "disgraceful" and that the chief of staff "embraces openly racist & bigoted ideals."

"He would have been kicked out of [the U.S. Marine Corps] for comments fractionally close to this," the onetime senior chief petty officer wrote.
