If it was e-minor wouldn't you have to raise that D to make it a major fifth?

All of the notes used in that progression are acceptable in the key of E minor, but the progression is CLEARLY not in E minor.

He was making a stupid jokes that served no purpose and ultimately caused confusion. He should probably delete said joke.

i THOUGHT that in minor keys you have to look at the minors fifth (in the case of e it would be b) and then take THAT key's third and raise it a half step (so for b that would be d) so that you can have a major five chord. im thinking in terms of triads if im throwing anybody off here. anyway, am i totally off-base with this?

It is common to have a major V chord in a minor key, but the chord does not actually fit in the scale. It is simply done because it sounds good.
