Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas casino magnate who was a powerful Republican donor and strong supporter of President Donald Trump, has died of complication from "a long illness," his wife announced Tuesday. He was 87.

 

"Sheldon was the love of my life. He was my partner in romance, philanthropy, political activism and enterprise. He was my soulmate," his wife, Miriam Adelson, wrote in a statement.

The company disclosed two years ago that Adelson had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He took a leave of absence recently to resume treatment, with the board of directors installing COO Robert Goldstein as acting chairman and acting CEO.

 

Bloomberg estimates Adelson's net worth was just over $33 billion at the time of his death, making him the 38th richest person in the world.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday mourned the passing of U.S. casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, one of Netanyahu’s staunchest American supporters, lauding his efforts to bolster ties between the U.S. and Israel that helped drive pro-Israel policy under the Trump administration.

 

With Adelson’s death, Netanyahu loses a key U.S. backer who for the last four years had the ear of the American president and worked tirelessly to push Israel’s priorities at the White House and in Congress. He also bids farewell to an important backroom player in Israeli politics who funded an influential free daily newspaper that served as an unofficial mouthpiece for Netanyahu.

I am so happy this guy is fucking dead. Horrible fucking fuck. War mongering, hyper crony capitalist POS. Seriously, this is a major win (though I'm sure his successor is likely just as bad). My emotions in three gifs:
