Want to blow up a Trump casino?

Atlantic City is giving people the chance to bid on imploding President Trump’s former casino in February. The Trump Plaza casino has been empty and deteriorating for the last six years.

Mr. Trump opened the casino in 1984, but it was closed in 2014 and fell into a state of disrepair. Bodnar’s Auction, the auction house collecting bids for the planned implosion, labeled the experience to push the button and demolish the building as a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”

All of proceeds from the auction will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City. The city’s mayor hopes it can raise more than $1 million with the stunt…”I think it’s extremely important that we do something worthwhile,” Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small Sr. said.

Wonder how much higher the bids would go if we could get Trump to reprise the Cagney role at the end of White Heat?
