That's right, the former Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City was destroyed earlier this morning at 9:00 AM sharp....and the entire thing was caught on video.

This footage is wild. Take a look below and if you want to jump ahead to the big boom, skip to the 4:00 minute mark.

My only major complaint is that I was not the one who got to press the button.

This became a bit of an event for Atlantic City this morning.

The public was allowed to attend the implosion by watching from Bader Field. There was a fee of $10 per car.

People could watch from outside their cars but they had to remain next to their car so social distancing measures could be kept in place.

But dang --- imagine being there to see this type of stunt  in person.
