Liberals Are Becoming Knee-Jerk Anti-Trumpists

• By Jeet Heer

With his party reeling from a wave of electoral defeats on Tuesday, Donald Trump stood before the South Korean National Assembly on Wednesday to tout his alleged victories as president. After a desultory Wikipedia-style description of the achievements of the South Korean miracle, the nation's remarkable economic recovery after the devastation of civil war, Trump said, "The United States is going through something of a miracle itself. Our stock market is at an all-time high. Unemployment is at a 17-year low. We are defeating ISIS. We are strengthening our judiciary, including a brilliant Supreme Court justice, and on and on and on."

It's unclear why South Koreans would care about the appointment of Neil Gorsuch, if they're even aware of it, but Trump then took his diplomatic tactlessness a step further by plugging for one of his properties: "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 Hyun Park, and eight of the top ten players were from Korea."
