I can't see how this doesn't lift up the stock market for years to come. (watch markets crash down on Monday)
The primary risk to that is inflation

Absolutely. But we don't have any real indication that inflation is creeping up since the last CPI reading was 0.3%. It does look like we have a broad asset price inflation but I don't think there will be a big correction when the economy is chugging along with low inflation until the Fed starts to pull back the money supply.

bond yields this week have been signaling the market's (and Fed's) expectations of higher inflationary risk than previously priced in.

I also don't believe in a rampant inflation scenario but even small changes in rates can impact stock valuations quite a bit

Can someone ELI5 how printing trillions of dollars and circulating them doesn’t lead to higher inflation and/or devaluation of the US dollar? I am not an expert in economics and genuinely don’t understand this concept.

It's easy, you just fold it in.

Cash hoarding in the banking system, savings rates going up, conservative balance sheet/capex from corporations, cautious or inexistent wage increases (because unemployment), cautious consumer spending (see unemployment and wages), deflationary pressure from the economic crisis.

Massive QE since 2008 has not left to noticeable inflation (a bit of pressure on the USD, yes).

Is that even a newsworthy headline?

There's a not-insignificant number of 30 year olds who own $720k condos without moving back in with their parents or hitting them up for a down payment.

Software Engineer in bay area buys modest condo, news at 10.

In the bay area it is. That probably is a studio or maybe a 1br.

We bought our first house at 23 after the housing crash. You would have thought lending requirements got more strict, but we per-qualified for a $400k mortgage when our household income was ~$50k (and only required 3% down), so I can't imagine it is too difficult to qualify for a mortgage to buy a $700k+ property.

I'm not saying the article isn't stupid (because it is), but decent amount of young folks could technically buy one (not saying it is a good idea). It does remind me of the articles my wife would regularly read "317 tricks to pay off your student loans faster" -- #8 borrow less. #47 pay more than the minimum.
