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.

    Sad he used his last breaths of hatred to discredit President Trump. I wasn’t moved by his disembarkment op-ed, sorry.

      I agree. I don’t care who he is , his description is everything the Democrats have done . Sorry for the families loss. But to use his last words like this is just sad!
