Atlantic City is not going to ever be Las Vegas, and the casino Donald Trump once called the city’s finest building (and possibly the nation’s) is no more.


The Donald has left town and cut ties to its casinos. And the Plaza, like many Atlantic City casinos, has seen better days.

A downward spiral that saw it ranked last among the city’s casinos ended Tuesday morning as about a half-dozen gamblers who stayed to the end got up from the lone blackjack table in operation or from a few slot machines and walked out beneath the dozens of glittery chandeliers for the last time.[su_csky_ad]

    Casinos closing? Must be that great Obama economy we’ve been hearing about

    • William September 16th, 2014 at 11:01 am

      The economy has surpassed the so called Reagan growth years. This Casino is closing because of the (as usual) failed policies of a conservative *snicker* “Job creator”

      • Red Eye Robot September 16th, 2014 at 3:35 pm

        So it’s your theory, economic growth is so massive that businesses that prosper in times of massive economic growth are going out of business? Got it!

        • William September 16th, 2014 at 4:16 pm

          It’s not a theory Corkey. Self centered ego-maniacs like Trump will run a business into the ground no matter what the economic climate. Romney (remember*giggle* Mitt Romney?), would take over a company, suck the assets out of it, run it into receivership, flush the workers pension plans and call it Capitalism.
          Your observation is just as fictitious as that of your imaginary Humvees with the belt fed machine guns at the Bundy ranch.

          • R.J. Carter September 16th, 2014 at 4:23 pm

            Romney saved far more jobs than were closed down, and those that were closed down were given a longer life span than they would have had without his company’s intervention.

            1. The total “jobs gap” numbers needed to return the U.S. economy to pre-recession (Dec. 2007) levels accounts for 8 million of those jobs alone.

            2. An additional 3.2 million jobs would have been needed over those 50 months just to keep up with population growth.

            3. A large percentage of these jobs are in the low paying service sector, with little job security and meager benefits.

      If you want a clue, here you go….in the northeast, we have an oversaturation of the market in casino’s, they have been popping up all over the last 30 years, therefore the older casino’s are left behind while people gravitate towards the newer, more modern casino’s, your welcome.

      • Red Eye Robot September 16th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

        RJ said it was because NJ’s credit rating was downgraded, Fancypants says it’s because Job creators are sitting on their money

        • Suzanne McFly September 16th, 2014 at 3:40 pm

          Good, ask them about the downgrades and lack of job creation, why are you replying to me about what others post? Is that your rebuttal? I hope you have nothing to do with law or education.

    • R J September 16th, 2014 at 2:14 pm

      Or it could be those right policies that have helped to downgrade N.J credit rating. Or maybe it’s because they are using a 1980’s business model in 2014.

      • Red Eye Robot September 16th, 2014 at 3:26 pm

        Breaking News: Casino’s make money from their home states credit rating, Not from gamblers…So says RJ

    • fancypants September 16th, 2014 at 2:33 pm

      more proof that our job creators want to sit on their cash and watch the casinos survive on penny slot machines

      • Red Eye Robot September 16th, 2014 at 3:24 pm

        If they were making cash, they wouldn’t be closing

        • fancypants September 17th, 2014 at 6:43 pm

          yea it takes too long to turn a profit with copper.

    • arc99 September 16th, 2014 at 3:41 pm

      so let’s see now, when a state like North Dakota or Texas is doing well over the past 5 years, it is DESPITE the policies of the President.

      but when a state like Kansas or New Jersey is not doing well during the same time frame , it is BECAUSE of the policies of the President.

      I tell ya, if hypocrites had a hall of fame, Obama-haters would constitute 99.9% of the nominees.

    A name change might have helped.

    • M D Reese September 16th, 2014 at 12:27 pm

      His is mighty proud of his little name, isn’t he?

  4. mrbigstuff September 16th, 2014 at 10:56 am

    8000 jobs lost,Casino grosses 37million dollars this year,Should have spent less time on Obamas Birth Certificate and more time in running in name only Casino.

  5. Denise September 16th, 2014 at 11:29 am

    now we know why he spent so much time attacking the president. his rotten entrepreneurship strikes again! I hope he ends up on food stamps and homeless!

  6. rg9rts September 16th, 2014 at 11:52 am

    The pie is only so big…..AC will have to reinvent itself like Vegas did.

    • M D Reese September 16th, 2014 at 12:26 pm

      I’m sure Governor Christie is busy working on it…

      • rg9rts September 16th, 2014 at 12:30 pm

        Sports betting…..the answer isn’t gambling but you can’t tell them that

  7. juicyfruityyy September 16th, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    He needs to just cut his loses, take his head rug, and disappear.

  8. fancypants September 16th, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    I guess this means the Donald is all washed up in new jersey ?
    but the super glue worked…. AMAZING

    Couldn’t have happened to a better jerk!
