This morning, the old Trump Plaza building on the Jersey Shore got blowed up real good!
Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small Sr said,
“This is the fitting end of Trump’s era.”
The implosion happened at 9.07 a.m. ET. People could be heard whooping, laughing, and letting off air horns to celebrate.
The original idea to auction off the rights to hit the button was abandoned over health and safety concerns.
Famous Trump-hater, Bette Midler said of the idea,
“Welp, there goes my daughter’s inheritance. Sorry, honey, Mommy’s got an itchy demo finger!”
Caesars Atlantic City had offered a Stay and View special for visitors who wanted to watch the demolition in luxury—complete with Champagne, late check-out, and a front-row seat.
Jennifer Owen, a former Atlantic City resident told the NY Times she bid $575 to secure a front-row seat at a V.I.P. breakfast in with a perfect view,
“It’s symbolic for sure… Him. Everything ending. It’s an end of a not-so-great era”
