John Oliver's Book About Mike Pence's Gay Bunny Is a Hit

John Oliver's Book About Mike Pence's Gay Bunny Is a Hit

On the March 18 edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver delivered a segment that excoriated Vice President Mike Pence, with a particular concentration on policies he's supported that are widely seen as homophobic.

Proceeds from her family's sales-charting "Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President" (Regnery Kids) will be donated to Tracy's Kids, which helps young cancer patients through the use of art therapy. While Pence is mostly controlled these days, Oliver points out that the VP was "surprisingly animated" in his radio show in the 90s where he speaks with contempt about women in the military (remember he hates Mulan?). The stunt, one of many goofy pranks launched on the show, is already working: His book is now sitting at the top of Amazon's overall bestselling books list, which is updated hourly. Oliver admitted that there was one thing he still liked about Pence, which is his pet rabbit named Marlon Bundo, which the comedian said was "an objectively good name for a bunny". Pence's wife, Karen, drew the illustrations for the book as well.

"It turns out, in a complete coincidence, we also wrote a book about Mike Pence's rabbit that has also been published", Oliver said.

Oliver's book has Pence's bunny falling in love with a boy rabbit. But little Marlon Bundo isn't just a family pet: like Peter Rabbit and Bugs Bunny before him, Marlon-or BOTUS (Bunny of the United States)-is a national celebrity!

Australia engages with ASEAN to develop trade and investment
The ASEAN nations are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The prime minister says the Malaysian delegation was accorded the "highest honours" during the Asean summit in Sydney.

"Sweet, funny, and beautifully illustrated, this book is dedicated to every bunny who has ever felt different".

John Oliver took a week off from breaking down President Donald Trump's latest outrages by focusing his fire on Vice President Mike Pence and his ultra-conservative views.

On "Last Week Tonight", Oliver also played an animated teaser for his children's book. "Now, none of us can enjoy a book about your rabbit-or can we?" All the proceeds will go to two organizations, The Trevor Project, the charity which provides services to at-risk LGBT+ youth, and AIDS United.

I am proud to share this book with my children, and I hope the Stink Bug gets the message. An audiobook version is also available with the voices of Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garland, Jack MacBrayer, Ellie Kemper, RuPaul, and John Lithgow.
