John Oliver Calls Out greedy Landlords In record On Skyrocketing Rents - HuffPost

John Oliver on Sunday mentioned that housing is now "the factor a sixteen-12 months-historic TikTok millionaire can have the funds for and you can't." (Watch the video below.)

On "remaining Week Tonight" the host took goal at skyrocketing rents and some of the greedy attitudes at the back of them.

He noted that the regular monthly employ turned into at an all-time high and that there wasn't a single county in the nation the place a minimum wage employee can have enough money to employ a "modest 2-bed room home."

Landlords who blamed "market expense" for elevating rents didn't get a move from Oliver.

He showed a clip of Dave Ramsey, a private finance character, assuring a guilt-ridden landlord that elevating hire to the market cost "doesn't make me a nasty Christian."

"I didn't displace the grownup out of that residence in the event that they can no longer have enough money it. The marketplace did," Ramsey pointed out on "The Ramsey exhibit."

"Of route kicking a person out of your apartment doesn't make you a nasty Christian," Oliver talked about. "It's in the Beatitudes: 'Blessed are the terrible in spirit. For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Fucked are the negative in cash. For theirs is the kingdom of landlords. Wazzaaaaaaa!!'"

Then there was footage of Bob Nicolls of Monarch funding and administration neighborhood gushing over the "remarkable chance" to "press rents." "where are americans gonna go? they could't go anyplace," he reasoned.

Oliver accused the firm of treating individuals like paninis. See what he intended:
