For his latest episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver tackled the surprising (and disturbing) amount of power homeowners associations have over their communities. However, in introducing his HOA deep dive, Oliver recognized that this story would alienate some of his audience: people under 35.
“If you are under 35, honestly, this story isn’t for you,” he said. “It’ll never be for you. You will never own a home. Sorry! That is the deal you made when you decided to be born after 1988.”
