HBO's John Oliver Says GOP 'Absolutely Blew It' on Corporate Tax Reform

HBO's John Oliver Says GOP 'Absolutely Blew It' on Corporate Tax Reform

The premium-TV talk show purchased additional killer (or "pointless", in Oliver's words) Crowe memorabilia from the actor's divorce auction - and the HBO host wants to donate it all to the last remaining Blockbuster Video store in Anchorage, Alaska. Three of them are in Alaska, where data streaming is still relatively expensive and has limited the dominance of Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. He wasn't sure how to get hold of Oliver or the show to say yes. Numerous items up for sale raised eyebrows, particular the leather jockstrap that he wore in "Cinderella Man", the Ron Howard-helmed movie about a boxer in the 1930s.

Salmonella traced in farm, over 200 million eggs recalled

"So, on Tuesday, as you scrape together your taxes and like Cardi B, wonder what Uncle Sam is doing with your motherf--ing money, rest assured that Donald Trump's tax reform continues to let companies engage in sophisticated tax avoidance schemes", Oliver said. The jockstrap used in the boxing film was reportedly worth a range from $500 to $600, according to broker Sotheby's who would be holding Crowe's auction. The leather jockstrap Crowe wore Cinderella Man, a pair of shorts and robe from the same movie, a hood Crowe wore in Robin Hood, and a vest he wore in Les Misérables.

Oliver addressed "the manager of the only remaining Blockbuster in Anchorage", saying, "Just call us in the next 48 hours, and we will send it to you".
