Report: John Oliver Used Tax Loophole Created by Trump On $9.5M NYC Apartment

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver has emerged as one of the leading anti-Donald Trump personalities in the entire media landscape, with his biting critiques often shared, discussed, and debated in the mainstream press. But according to a Wednesday report in the Observer, the late-night funnyman used a tax loophole created in part by Trump in the 1970s to allegedly avoid paying a large tax bill on the $9.5 million New York City apartment he purchased in 2014, just weeks after deriding tax breaks for the wealthy during a segment on his HBO show.
