REPORT: Dingell dictates op-ed before death: ‘My last words for America’
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Just hours before he passed away Thursday, former Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) dictated to his wife reflections on the state of the U.S. for an op-ed published in the Washington Post Friday.
Dingell was the longest serving congressman in American history whose death has prompted an outpouring of support from both sides of the political aisle.
The article goes on to state the following:
Dingell used his some of his final thoughts to critique President Trump, albeit without naming him directly.
“In our modern political age, the presidential bully pulpit seems dedicated to sowing division and denigrating, often in the most irrelevant and infantile personal terms, the political opposition,” the op-ed reads.
This is so very touching. Imagine spending literally your last moments on Earth, bidding farewell to the country you served and love.
Thank you, @RepDebDingell for sharing him with the rest of us.🇺🇸 https://t.co/yLli4x9XsI

One of the last pieces, if not the last piece, that John Dingell wrote: “I Served in Congress Longer Than Anyone. Here’s How to Fix It: Abolish the Senate and publicly fund elections.” https://t.co/Ck2uD2Ob68
