Trump really loves talking about his businesses. In fact, he never passes up an opportunity to talk them up, brag about how great they are and encourage people to visit them. And he also love to golf at Trump properties, with at least 73 visits so far, as tracked by the Trump Golf Counter website.

So what did the Grifter in Chief do while giving a speech to the South Korea Assembly on Tuesday night? He talked all about his Bedminster Golf Course:

He started off somewhat meekly, cracking a joke:

"In fact, and you know what I'm going to say."

Yes, we know...and we are all so embarrassed....

"...,the Women's U.S. open was held this year at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and it just happened to be won by a great Korean golfer, Sung Hung Park and eight of the top ten players were from Korea and the top four golfers, one, two, three, four, the top four were from Korea. congratulations. [ applause ]

Congratulations. and that's something. that is really something."

Fantastic. Nothing like turning a moment of unity and diplomacy isn't a late night infomercial for a golf course in New Jersey.

And our national shame continues.

Can you help us out?
