The news coming out of Atlantic City is that Trump rolled a seven before the profits came in
Trump Plaza to shut its doors in September, crapping out before a major profit win
Trump Plaza is not the first casino to close as Atlantic City as a Mecca never met the test
Wonder if the failure will Trump’s expanding ego slow down or arrest?
Was it the Trump haircut that looked like he was always in a full breeze?
Or his constant harping on Obama’s failure to deal forcefully with the Chinese?
The gods of Lady Luck that loves Macau looked at Trump Plaza and said “You’re fired.”
In September Trump Plaza most likely will join two other casinos just retired
A thousand jobs to be lost but at least two months notice in advance
The need for profits always trumps even in the games of chance.
Never understood how Atlantic City thought with Macau or Las Vegas it could compete
Why would the Chinese fly another four hours for a Pai Gow or Sic Bo gambling seat?
At least Trump will not lose much of his wealth
He has already divested down to ten percent only in stealth
But his name prominently still remains
A stark reminder that nothing is assured in the profit seeking game.
