A Trump Casino Implodes And MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Savors The Schadenfreude

Donald Trump’s long-shuttered Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, was imploded on Wednesday, and MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace couldn’t help but see it as symbolic.

The “Deadline: White House” host had just finished a discussion that included GOP operative and vocal Trump critic Tim Miller when she decided to share footage of the former Trump hotel crashing to the ground.

“Tim, I saved this for you. I feel a little … well, I don’t feel bad playing it,” Wallace snarkily said in a video curated by Mediaite.

“There it goes,” she said as the hotel fell. “Is Trump and all he ushered in — are we done, is it imploding?” she wondered.

“I’m just bathing in this for a second,” Miller bantered back.

“I never say stuff like this but, control room, can we play it again?” Wallace requested. “Is this a metaphor? Are we done?”

Trump opened the Plaza in 1984 and, for a time, it was the most successful casino in Atlantic City, according to The Associated Press. Its glory began to fade after the future president opened the nearby Trump Taj Mahal in 1990. Following a series of bankruptcy filings, he cut ties with the Plaza in 2009, according to The New York Times.

By the time it closed in 2014, the Plaza was the poorest-performing casino in Atlantic City.

Like Wallace, Jennifer Owen saw in the implosion a meaning beyond yet another building being destroyed for redevelopment. Owen, who bid $575 to watch the spectacle from a front-row seat, told the Times that it marked the “end of a not-so-great era.”

“It’s symbolic for sure,” she said. “Him. Everything ending.”

‘Lava’ lights up Yosemite Park: Stunning annual ‘firefall’ illusion caused by setting sun’s reflection makes waterfall on El Capitan look like molten rock

  • Amazing pictures show the annual ‘firefall’ phenomenon at California’s Yosemite National Park
  • For just a few days in February, the setting sun illuminates Horsetail Fall each evening for a matter of minutes, making it glow like a cascade of molten lava 
  • The event typically attracts thousands of visitors, but numbers had to be cut this year due to the pandemic 
  • Park rangers have set up travel restrictions and an online booking system amid COVID social distancing fears 
  • The waterfall flows down the granite face of the park’s famed rock formation, El Capitan
  • Horsetail Fall only flows in the winter or spring, when there is enough rain and snow

No, these stunning pictures from Yosemite National Park don’t show lava falling down the side of a cliff. 

The amazing spectacle is actually the park’s annual ‘firefall’ phenomenon, where the setting sun illuminates Horsetail Fall making it glow like a cascade of molten lava.

The optical illusion occurs for just a few days each February – if the conditions are right – and lasts for a matter of minutes in the evening.

The 2,000-foot waterfall plunges down the granite face of the park’s famed rock formation, El Capitan.

The firefall spectacle typically draws thousands of photographers and Instagrammers from around the world.

But this year, the National Park Service brought in entry restrictions and required people to book online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

There are also concerns that the thousands of photographers were damaging the nearby landscape.

The Horsetail Fall is a seasonal waterfall that flows in the winter and spring.

If the weather conditions are right, the setting sun illuminates the water flowing down the rocky face, making it look like fierce orange lava. 

Because the so-called ‘firefall’ needs a warm enough temperature to melt snow at the top as well as the sun to set at the right angle and clear skies, the effect is not visible every year.

The firefall also needs evenings with a clear sky, as even a slight haziness of cloudiness can diminish the effect.

Many visitors are disappointed when conditions are not exactly right for the phenomenon.

Yosemite National Park warns on its website: ‘This unique lighting effect happens only on evenings with a clear sky when the waterfall is flowing. Even some haze or minor cloudiness can greatly diminish or eliminate the effect.’

“When are you going to start covering Cuomo?” The Federalist reporter proceeded, repeating his initial question.

“We do,” Acosta replied before the reporter fired back, “No, I’m asking you a serious question.”

 “But, David, we do cover that. We have, too,” Acosta insisted.

Acosta responded to Turton’s video with a pointed joke.

Ted Cruz‘s colleagues mocked him over his ill-fated Cancun trip when he returned to work by posting memes in the Senate gym locker room which read ‘Bienvenido de Nuevo, Ted’.

Cruz and his family flew to Cancun from Houston during the worst of the Texas energy crisis after a winter storm last week.  

He was slammed for the decision and returned in disgrace but he has been unapologetic about it, blaming it on his daughters and claiming he was just being ‘a good dad’. 

This week, when he returned to Washington, he was trolled by other lawmakers who, according to NBC, printed memes from his trip and posted them in the Senate gym locker room.

The signs read ‘Bienvenido de Nuevo, Ted,’ which means ‘Welcome back’ in English. 

Cruz, on Friday, brushed off the trip again as he arrived in Orlando for CPAC. He took to the stage and shamelessly joked: ‘Orlando is awesome. It’s not as nice as Cancun!’ 

He went on to denounce cancel culture, saying: ‘This is the Rebel Alliance. 

‘Darth Vader and the emperor – and let’s be clear, they’re not your father – are terrified of the rebels that are here. And I’m telling ya, Gina Carano stands with us!’

‘We believe in individuality – different people have different views. We are the not the Borg,’ he said, referring to the villains in Star Trek.

‘I may have committed a cardinal sin mixing Star Wars and Star Trek.’ 

Cruz was trolled relentlessly with memes after abandoning his home state to go to Cancun with his friends and family while millions in the state were still without power and water.

It was an epic failure by ERCOT – the state’s energy distributor – which neither prepared enough reserve energy before the storm hit, nor did it upgrade power plants to be able to withstand the frigid temperatures. 

The combination resulted in them having to perform rolling blackouts across the state to try to preserve the electrical grid. 

Millions were without heat, power or water during the coldest temperatures for more than one hundred years. 

Governor Greg Abbott has ordered an investigation into ERCOT’s failings. 

Cruz claimed initially that his 10 and 12-year-old daughters asked to flee the cold temperatures.

How James and Julia Corden became the unlikely power couple of Hollywood

Shaw Academy


After first finding fame as Essex lad Smithy in British sitcom Gavin and Stacey, James Corden has seen a meteoric rise to Hollywood A-lister and now spends his days rubbing shoulders with the industry’s elite.

Chic Me - World

The actor, 42, who started his career as an actor in Hollyoaks, relocated from the UK to Los Angeles six-years-ago to anchor The Late Late Show and has since amassed a fortune of over £50 million thanks to high profile hosting gigs and roles in films like Into The Woods, Cats and Prom.  

And yesterday Corden pulled off the biggest coup of his career – stealing a march on Oprah Winfrey by airing a candid interview with his friend, Prince Harry, days before her own prime time interview is due to air. 

By his side on this ride to the upper echelons of celebrity is his wife Julia, 41, co-founder of interior design brand Charles & Co which counts the Clooneys and the Beckhams among its A-list clients – giving the couple even more connections.

The Cordens, who were guests at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, count Harry Styles and Dominic Cooper among their social circle, while James has had everyone from Sir Elton John to Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga on his show.

The couple also boast a home worthy of Hollywood superstars, living in a £7.3 million mansion in Brentwood, an upmarket LA suburb, with their three children. The property hast five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a pool, plus such typically Hollywood features as a wood-panelled library, cinema room and gym.

It also has its own spa and an office complete with high-tech film editing facilities. 

As well as keeping up with his hosting and acting roles, Corden recently added a major endorsement deal to his name. 

And at the start of the year, it was revealed James would join the likes of DJ Khaled and Robbie Williams in representing WW after becoming ’embarrassed’ about his body.

Not bad for a guy who started his career with a small roles in Hollyoaks and a Tango advert.

Here FEMAIL reveals how the unexpected pair have been catapulted into the centre of the celebrity world.

The Late Late Show: An A-list favourite

James Corden has played host to many A-lister guests on the Late Late Show. Famous faces who’ve appeared on his show include:

  • Tom Hanks
  • Lady Gaga
  • One Direction 
  • Britney Spears
  • Chris Martin
  • Stevie Wonder
  • Elton John 
  • Madonna
  • Julia Roberts
  • George Clooney
  • Christina Aguilera

The Gavin And Stacey star first cracked America when his stage show One Man Two Guvnors transferred to Broadway in 2012 after a successful stint in the West End. 

He was then catapulted to worldwide fame after he made his debut as the presenter of The Late, Late Show in 2015, taking over the role from Craig Ferguson.

With the immense popularity of segments like Carpool Karaoke, James has become one of America’s most beloved late night presenters.

And thanks to his success on The Late, Late Show, James has landed a number of roles in Hollywood films like Into The Woods and The Prom, and he has also hosted the Tony Awards.  

He has since reportedly more than doubled his wealth to a whopping £50m after moving to Hollywood.

Following his move to LA,  James has become one of the partners at film production company Fulwell 73 and seen his assets swell. 

He was previously estimated as being worth around £22m, however in the latest accounts from his company the business’ assets are declared as £140m.  

The star also has earnings from his film and TV roles, with him thought to earn $7m for The Late Late Show, as well as millions of dollars tied up in his properties.

From decorating the homes of celebrities to hosting them on a chatshow, Julia and James have settled into the centre of life in Los Angeles. 

Since relocating to the States, Corden has drawn other high-profile pals into his circle, including U2 frontman Bono and actor Sean Penn. Mary Poppins actress Emily Blunt and her American husband John Krasinski – one of Hollywood’s most popular power couples – are regular guests at his home.

… AND THE TRAPPINGS OF AN LA LIFE 

When he was still a jobbing actor, known mainly for his role in the Alan Bennett play The History Boys, Corden shared a flat above a London doughnut shop with Dominic Cooper (now star of hit TV show Preacher).

Corden joked that there was no furniture and only one piece of cutlery, a spatula, and that the fridge contained only ‘half a vitamin water and a Lindt chocolate bunny’.

Today, he shares a £7.3 million mansion in Brentwood, an upmarket LA suburb, with Julia and their three children.

There are five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a pool, plus such typically Hollywood features as a wood-panelled library, cinema room and gym.

It also has its own spa and an office complete with high-tech film editing facilities.

While he stays in LA, Corden rents out the family’s £3 million London home in leafy Belsize Park for about £15,000 a month.

His neighbours in Brentwood –just a 20-minute drive from the CBS studios where his chat show is filmed – include Gwyneth Paltrow, Cindy Crawford, Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg.

‘The children are happy and healthy and love their circle of friends,’ says the source. ‘James is a devoted dad and spends a lot of time with the kids. His weekends are sacrosanct.

‘James knows none of this success would mean anything without Julia’s love and support. His family means everything to him.’

Out on the town, Corden favours the luxurious Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, where phone calls and photos are banned. Jennifer Aniston held her 50th birthday party there in February. Corden’s tipple? Don Julio 1492 tequila at £120 a bottle.

‘The best parties are at his house,’ says the source. ‘He’ll hire a team of private chefs and you never know who will be there, from the heads of TV networks to stars like Emily Blunt.’

There is, too, an unlikely friendship with Anna Wintour, the formidable British editor of American Vogue. They met after Anna saw Corden in the Broadway version of the play One Man, Two Guvnors in 2011 and sent him a card telling him she was his biggest fan. ‘Through her, he has met everyone,’ says the source.

James’ Carpool Karaoke has seen the funny-man bantering with megastars like Madonna, Britney Spears and Adele. 

Meanwhile stars among their closest circle include One Direction star Harry Styles, with Corden recently lending him his Palm Springs home while the musician was shooting his part in Wilde’s new movie.

His relationship with Mamma Mia star Dominic Cooper dates back to 2004 when they were rooming together and starring in The History Boys, a British campus comedy.  

Speaking of their days sharing a flat in London on James’ chat show, The Late Late Show, Dominic reminisced on how they would often sleep in the same bed due to the lack of furniture.

He said: ‘We were never there at the same time much, were we? But when we were, there was absolutely no furniture. 

We had a bed, one bed. We only had one piece of cutlery which was a spatula.

‘I remember one depressing evening, he caught me, he came home and I was eating baked beans with the spatula.’

James added: ‘We rented it furnished. It had no furniture in it and we never thought to complain.’

It was Dominic who introduced James to now wife Julia, who was an old school friend of his. 

He told People: ‘I said, ‘Hi, Jules. You might be the most beautiful woman in the world.’ She said, ‘Well, thank you very much. That sounds like something you say a lot.’ 

‘And I said, ‘I’ve never said it before in my life.’ That was it. That was it, really. I was in. And by an absolute miracle, so was she.’

Later, the two slinked off to a corner to plan the rest of their lives, with James revealing: ‘I remember saying to her, ‘Well, what about on Friday we could do nothing together? You could come over and we could just do nothing.

“And then maybe we could do nothing on Saturday, and we could do nothing on the Sunday. And if our evenings are enough of nothing, then maybe this would become something.”

‘And she said, ‘That sounds like a fun idea.’” 

James proposed on holiday in the Maldives in 2008, while Julia was expecting their eldest son Max.

They married in September 2012 at Babington House, with a spectacular guest list including Lara Stone, comedian Michael McIntyre, and Snow Patrol lead singer Gary Lightbody.

The couple also have two daughters, Charlotte, six, and Carey, three.

James and Prince Harry have been friends for years, telling People: ‘The friendship mostly started with being out and about the same places in London.’

The chat show host and his wife Julia attended the royal wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018. 

The funnyman joined a whole galaxy of stars including George and Amal Clooney as well as David and Victoria Beckham. 

At the time, he described the nuptials, revealing: ‘It was so lovely. I’ve known Prince Harry about seven years now and it was wonderful.

‘It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I’ve ever been to. It was gorgeous, it was a whole affair, it was happy, it was joyous, it was uplifting.’ 

James made a showstopping entrance to the palace afterparty as it was claimed he arrived at Prince Harry and Meghan‘s wedding reception dressed up as King Henry VIII.

At the time, People Magazine reported the presenter arrived last to the reception, clad in the monarch’s signature Tudor costume, saying he ‘didn’t know what to wear’. 

He said: ‘Harry asked me to do some kind of performance…it was fun, it was a really special day.’  

Meanwhile the presenter also stole the march on Oprah by airing his antics with Prince Harry days before the prime-time interview that enraged Buckingham Palace. 

In a wide-ranging chat mostly carried out on an open-top bus, the Duke of Sussex – or ‘Haz,’ as Corden calls him – reveals he went from ‘zero to sixty’ with Meghan and how the pressures of living in London were ‘destroying my mental health.’ 

HIS WIFE’S CELEBRITY INTERIORS COMPANY

While James has a successful acting and presenting career, his wife Julia runs a hugely successful and popular interior design company.

With a background in TV production, talent management and PR, she founded Charles & Co in 2016 with Vicky Charles, who was the design director for Soho House having worked for the group for 20 years.   

The pair were introduced by Soho House CEO Nick Jones and set up the business while Julia was taking time off to have her children.

She handles the business side of Charles & Co, recently telling The Telegraph her role is ‘to allow Vicky to be as creative as possible.’

High-profile clients include the Beckhams, the Clooneys, Emma Stone, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. 

Builds for the pair usually include a ‘social, club-like spaces’ within their homes, including bars, wine cellars, playrooms and even libraries. 

Meanwhile others might value a recording studio, with Julia revealing: ‘Being able to record a little voiceover without having to leave your house can make a huge difference, especially if you live outside the city.’

Earlier this year, James was unveiled as the new ambassador for WW, previously known as Weight Watchers, after becoming ’embarrassed’ over his body. 

During a chat with Oprah Winfrey on WW’s Facebook page he revealed he ‘hates’ doing exercise but his wife Julia plans circuits for them to do. 

James revealed in the New Year that he has signed up to the health and fitness programme to help shift the conversation around wellness.

He said: ‘I want to change the way that I live. I want to be better for my children and for my family. I don’t want to wake up tired, or feel embarrassed when I’m chasing my son on the soccer field and out of breath after three minutes.’

James joins fellow stars DJ Khaled and Robbie Williams in representing the brand and using the platform to get in shape and change their lives.

The TV star, who first burst onto TV screens in scripted series Fat Friends in 2000, said: ‘The weight is not the issue, it’s the wellness of it I am ready to tackle. I’m going to take this year and work towards getting healthy… 

James has been candid about his weight struggles in the past and back in 2017 he shed six stone in weight and found major success in Hollywood, however he has also admitted the one food that he can’t stop eating is bread.

Speaking about the last time he was ‘off bread’ for dietary reasons, James recalled an incident while he was out at dinner saying: ”[I have] a sort of battle with food…

‘Then they delivered this basket of warm, fresh bread and we’re like, “It’s happening, we’re doing it. Who are we trying to kid?” ‘It’s our nemesis, it’s out to destroy us!’
