Debbie Dingell is jingling about 'the Trump Choir' and 'how the country goes'


December 18, 2019, 5:36 PM

Update, 8:35 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20:

Shortly after Rep. Debbie Dingell shared her political Jingle, as impeachment proceedings continued in Washington, Trump suggested to a crowd in Grand Rapids that the congresswoman's late husband, Rep. John Dingell, may be in hell.

Original post, 6:17 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19: 

Rep. Debbie Dingell extends a "Dingell Jingle" holiday tradition her late husband John started. The Dearborn congresswoman picked it up in 2015 after winning the seat he held 60 years.

She posts the latest stanzas of topical humor and political pokes Wednesday, hours before she'll vote for the president's impeachment. 

Here's the full text from her U.S. House page, set to the tune of "A Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)."

2019 Holiday Jingle

Democrats feeling the President’s ire
Impeachment causing too many woes
Republicans all members of the Trump Choir
The House is reflecting how the country goes

Everybody knows 400 passed House bills and how it goes
The Senate should be doing it right
But confirmations are all aglow
And they just seem to want a good fight

Everybody also knows Medicare-negotiated drugs
Help to bring down prescription costs
Next Generation fighting climate change
To protect the planet for tomorrow

They know the election is on its way
It's loaded lots of surprises and conflicts along the way
And every candidate is gonna say "I'm the one who can take back the White House"

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways —
We are all Americans too
