    A crumbling facade, parts of it completely missing – you can’t make this stuff up.

  2. An eyesore with a crumbling facade? Thought she was talking about Donald for a moment.

  3. Wow, trump finally makes an indirect contribution to a Childrens Charity that the kids will actually get.

    • @Kathy Mcneil I know. He is not a good person. He is a sick man.

    • People try to actually read articles and keep up for once. Here’s a an article of truth

      President Donald Trump’s namesake charitable foundation agreed to cease operations in late 2018 as part of an agreement with New York’s attorney general, who alleged that the nonprofit organization was improperly leveraged to further Trump’s business and political interests. A November court order resolved the lawsuit, and Trump ultimately paid a total of $2 million in damages to eight charities, which also received equal portions of the foundation’s remaining $1.8 million.

      But it is not the case, as viral social media posts claim, that the Trump family was “disallowed from operating ANY charity” in New York “because they stole from a kids cancer charity.” That distorts the facts on a number of fronts, including by conflating two separate matters.

      First of all, it’s wrong to say the family was “disallowed” from operating a charity in the state. There was no such stipulation in the settlement with the attorney general.

      While the attorney general’s lawsuit initially asked the court to bar Trump and his grown children who sat on the foundation’s board from serving as any charity’s “officer, director, trustee or equivalent position” for a period of time, the settlement reached did not do that.

      Instead, the agreement imposes a number of requirements that the president must meet if he “decides to serve as an officer or director of a pre-existing charitable organization” — or “form a new charitable organization and serve as an officer or director thereof” — in New York. For example, if Trump were to start a new organization, he would need to “provide Annual Reports to the Attorney General for 5 years.”

      It also required Trump’s children — Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump — to participate in “mandatory training” relating to charitable organizations, which the three have already undergone.

      There also was no part of the state’s lawsuit that dealt with allegations that the Trump Foundation “stole from a kids cancer charity,” as the posts claim.

      That detail appears to stem from a 2017 Forbes story that alleged Eric Trump’s separate nonprofit organization, the Eric Trump Foundation, engaged in self-dealing and misled donors.

    • @Leah Norris I also grew up in New Jersey and moved to Maine when I was 20, also best move I ever made. lol.

    • *The BuiLding is a NICE BuiLding, BuiLt by the Greatest Genius, who EVER LIVED!!!!*
      *Why Waste it!!! Why NOT use it for something???* <= For TRUTH

    It’s the epitome of Trump, a giant con whose facade is crumbling

    • @WILSON! why have you left UK, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Canada and pretty much of the developed Western world? You are clearly very ignorant.

    • @WILSON! BTW, You lose all credibility when you foment that tired old chestnut about masters and control through a pandemic..I’ve had the pleasure of debunking several conspiracies this year on that very subject.
      So which one are you..? Georgia Guidestones…? Agenda 21…? Chinese communist Plandemic..? Jesus lives/Zionist blackmail..? Cult of Mars..? Extra Terrestrial Earth Conservation…? E.T. Herd thinning…?
      Go ahead and publish your manifesto..if it’s new or unique, I may take the time to debunk it at my leisure…

    • @WILSON! 40+ years of documented cheating and stealing shows that trump is a con. He’s only branding, no substance. Cripes guy, he called covid a hoax, then caught it himself. All on live tv. I’m guessing you like Obama, as you’re using him to defend trump.

    • @WILSON! You sound like a soft spoiled American child. You must be if you misunderstand the word comfort. Comfort as in you can pay your bills, you have a roof over your head, you can feed yourself. Don’t proclaim to know anything about this world, like some kind of informed person, you can’t even understand the English language, which I presume is your native language. But you are so soft, you can’t comprehend what the word comfort means, instead you go to extremes with free stuff and Venezuela. Do you really expect us to believe you have a clue as to what happened to Venezuela, other than “socialism bad”, when you can’t even understand the word comfort?

  5. i’m sure manhattanites’d
    love to do the same to
    their “tower”.

  6. This hotel is a metaphor of America after what Trump has done

    Please put him in prison, where he belongs!

  8. That crumbling casino looked like a cheap veneer covering up an enormous turd. Oh right, everything Trump is that.

  9. In Vancouver, thousands stood and cheered as they tore down his sign at his failed hotel there….

  10. How fitting! His name going up in flames just after he goes down in flames!

  11. This must be killing trump knowing that his failure is actually going to help kids.

    • @Draftkings Jackpot what’s the story?

    • If he could get his hands on it…he would. And $20 million for chandeliers…I doubt it. Yuge* ugly glass is more like it

    • @The Connoisseur dude, left just can’t meme. You made a career out of it? Blimey!

    • @Mark NDo some research, fact check and think twice before you rush to kiss it’s ‘ bigly S’ and make yourself a fool in the public forum.
      ● ” Tried to be cautious of panicking people ” and yet that thing living in the WH and it’s die hard fans yelling and blaming that China and WHO delayed to notify the world of the Covid? As if China do not have to be cautious of panicking 1.4 Billion Chinese when such virus NEVER HAPPEN IN HUMAN SPECIES. Pot calling kettle black. LOL

      ●Biden did accuse Trump of “xenophobia” in an Iowa campaign speech the same day that the administration announced the travel restrictions — Jan. 31 — but his campaign said his remarks were not related, and that he made similar comments before the restrictions were imposed
      ●Often referring to the order as a “ban” on travel. However, the order was NOT a “ban” at all. The order exempted citizens, permanent residents and most family members. The only people who were restricted from coming into the country from China were foreign nationals who had visited China in the last 14 days.

      45 nations implemented travel restrictions on China before the U.S. did. After Trump issued the order on China, his administration did not institute further travel restrictions until February 27. Experts later concluded a large source of the outbreak in the U.S. may have been from travelers based in Europe, not Asia.
      40,000. That’s how many people flew from China to the United States in the two months after Trump implemented the travel restrictions on China, according to the New York Times.

  12. These two trying so hard to not just crack a giant grin. Oh the irony of blowing up the orange clown’s casino, making him a loser yet again.

      Justice for ernie serrano

    • That’s just pure hate. Best if you try and limit that emotion from your life. Just plain negative. Trump ain’t gonna feel it anyways.

    • @Mark N why don’t you tell that to Trump and all of his cult followers? And then go tell that to the 100+ seditious house republicans and every single congressman and congresswoman that kisses the feet of the Trump family?

  13. His charity stiffed the Boys and Girls Clubs, so it’s fitting they are finally getting some money in his name.

  14. Keep your mayor safe, Atlantic City. He’s a good egg. This is an excellent idea. It raises money and is great for local morale.

  15. They need to fly one of those huge, inflatable Diaper Don balloons over the roof. Inflate it with hydrogen 👶🔥

  16. “A crumbling facade”, the symbolism and metaphor are ironic.

  17. A Crumbling Facade
    Yep, and his casino is falling apart, too.

  18. I’m just glad the money will go to The Boys’ and Girls’ Club and not into a fake trump fundraiser.

  19. That’s going to be one lucky SOB to put that garbage name off that casino!!

  20. If I had the money, I’d pay to have Biden press that button.
