On Wednesday, February 17, the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City was demolished due to extensive "disrepair."
Explosives were detonated within the building at 9:00 AM and the controlled implosion took roughly 20 seconds to complete.
Clips of the moment subsequently went viral, thanks in no small part to the unpopularity of the building's namesake, former President Donald Trump.

The failure of yet another Trump endeavor was cause for celebration among many online, but one of the most memorable bits of shade came from former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Clinton won the popular vote in 2016 by about 3 million votes, she was defeated in the electoral college vote to Trumo.
However her reputation among the general population remains far stronger than his following his term in office.

In the eyes of Trump's harshest critics, the moment gleefully symbolized the former President's fall from power.

Unfortunately for him, Donald Trump has been permanently banned from Twitter and so was unable to respond to Clinton's emoji.
