His rent isn’t that damn high!

Jimmy McMillan, the candidate running for governor under the Rent Is Too Damn High Party banner, who stole the show in Monday’s debate, hasn’t had a rent increase in at least five years in his one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment.

The rent at his Flatbush abode has been frozen at a very reasonable $800 since 2005. That’s a better deal than rent control.

“The rents should go up but they haven’t. People don’t have that kind of money,” said Viola Hampton, building manager at the three-unit Nostrand Avenue walkup where McMillan has lived for nearly 20 years.
