If there’s one thing most Americans love, it’s the perennially insufferable Piers Morgan telling us how backward our country is. Usually, it’s about guns, but today, he branched out and condemned our health care system.
Despite his past professed support for universal health care, this morning, Donald Trump called out Democrats (like those in California) pushing for an NHS-style system of socialized medicine in the U.S.:
The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!

Musket took great offense to that:
Wrong, Mr President.
Our NHS is a wonderful, albeit imperfect, health system – and the envy of the world.
By comparison, the US healthcare system is a sick joke & the envy of no-one. https://t.co/Ew5GxclcMF

Last time we checked, the U.S. health care system wasn’t canceling 50,000 surgeries, running out of ambulances, and leaving prospective patients spilling into hallways. Basically the V.A. system on a much larger scale. No thanks.
Our system is certainly not perfect, either, but at least patients here have a fighting chance.
That's insane. Your healthcare system is the envy of maybe, Venezuela. Not us. https://t.co/bz4GpzD8G3

No one envies it because anyone smart enough to envy it already lives here. https://t.co/rzK5MOtGOZ

And speaking of living here, why does Piers spend any time in this country? What with all the guns shooting people and the terrible health care and all?
Then fuck off away from here. https://t.co/VraxtlFmRJ

We’d be glad to help him pack.
