Donald Trump is looking at a plethora of lawsuits for everything from rape to pressuring Georgia officials to change votes to inciting a mob to violence at the nation’s Capitol Building. New York Attorney General Letitia James cannot wait to get her hands on him. A special event occurred Wednesday morning in Atlantic City, New Jersey that was a good visual for all that ex-president has brought down upon himself.
Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino closed in 2014 when Trump drove it into bankruptcy, as he did with his other casino, Trump Taj Mahal. Once a huge draw on the Boardwalk, Trump Plaza had started falling apart until it became a public danger, and “chunks of it had started to peel off,” according to NBC News.
At 9:08 a.m. the building was destroyed in a venomous cloud of dirt. Former events manager for the casino Bernie Dillion said that Trump’s hotel used to be a real draw for celebrities:
‘The way we put Trump Plaza and the city of Atlantic City on the map for the whole world was really incredible. Everyone from Hulk Hogan to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, it was the whole gamut of personalities. One night before a Tyson fight, I stopped dead in my tracks and looked about four rows in as the place was filling up, and there were two guys leaning in close and having a private conversation: Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty.’
‘It was like that a lot: You had Madonna and Sean Penn walking in, Barbra Streisand and Don Johnson, Muhammad Ali would be there, Oprah sitting with Donald ringside. It was a special time. I’m sorry to see it go.’
NBC News reporter Gary Grumbach caught the story with this tweet:
