He's still birther scum, you understand, but who knew that the reason Donald Trump opposes Obamacare is because he really wants single payer?

It's true. On last night's Letterman show, Trump first moaned about all the wonderful infrastructure in other countries until Dave reminded him that Obama tried to get some of that infrastructure going here until Republicans stopped it.

Then he went into a riff on the Obamacare website, saying it didn't work (it does), and that Obamacare doesn't work (it does, too).

Out of that conversation came a surprise discussion of single payer health care in the UK and how wonderful it is, but it wasn't Letterman who brought that subject up. It was Trump.

All this time we thought Trump was a conservative who just wanted people to die, and it turns out he's a conservative who thinks single-payer health care is awesome.

Go figure.
