John Oliver Masterfully Skewers Mike Pence-and His Pet Rabbit

Marlon Bundo has been at official press conferences, has an Instagram account documenting his life with the vice president, and now stars in a new children's book written by the Pence family - and one by Oliver. Except in his book, Marlon Bundo is totally gay.
"It turns out, in a complete coincidence, we also wrote a book about Mike Pence's rabbit-that has also been published", Oliver said, introducing his book.
The parody's antagonist, Stink Bug, is an anti-gay marriage politician with a strong resemblance to Pence.
Oliver said, "I would love to say, 'Fine, it's a fun, sweet book about a rabbit, who gives a s***.' But unfortunately, one of the stops on that book tour is at Focus on the F***ing Family". The book came out a day before Pence's family released their own, "Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of the Vice President", on Monday, but Oliver's stands in stark contrast to the Pence book and his views.
The reviews on Amazon suggest the book is also succeeding as a campaign against Pence and his family.
Oliver's book features a tale of tolerance and aims to show kids that when their leaders make laws that seem unfair or do not represent them and their beliefs, they have the right to vote them out of office. But that's not the only book about Marlon Bundo to go on sale this week.
"There are few small differences between the two books. You'll notice right away that our rabbit has a bow tie, so there's that", Oliver said. Oliver told viewers they could immediately buy the book at Amazon, or at BetterBundoBook.com. But on this Very Special Day, Marlon's life is about to change forever... Now young readers can follow Marlon Bundo along as he hops after "Grampa" (Vice President Mike Pence) in this delightful story penned by Charlotte Pence and illustrated faithfully with watercolors from the "Second Lady" herself, Karen Pence.
"Meet Marlon Bundo, a lonely bunny who lives with his Grampa, Mike Pence-the Vice President of the United States", the product description reads.
Oliver said proceeds from his book will go toward AIDS United, a group dedicated to ending the AIDS epidemic in the US, and the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization that provides support to young members of the LGBT community.
