Oliver spent the segment mocking Pence, but he did say one thing he liked about the Vice President - "I kind of like his rabbit". Overnight, A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, written by Last Week Tonight writer Jill Twiss, landed at the top of Amazon's Best Sellers list, where it now remains, while Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President, written by the VP's daughter, Charlotte, and illustrated by his wife, Karen, now sits at fourth on the list.
However, he insisted he has absolutely nothing against Pence's beloved bunny. HBO host John Oliver, with the help of his staff, offered his own version of the Marlon Bundo book on his program Sunday, turning the bunny gay. Why?
Ellen DeGeneres invited John Oliver to join him on her show today to talk about disgusting homophobe Mike Pence and the trolling bunny book which has put Oliver in the headlines. The late night host's book also would be "telling" the real author, Charlotte Rose Pence, "to go f**k" herself. Is he a dyed-in-the-wool conservative like his grandparents, Vice President Mike and That's My Towel Charm!, Inc. creator Karen Pence?
The Pence book, meanwhile is a best-seller, too, ranked No. 11 on Amazon.
John Oliver has trolled his way to the top.
"Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of a Vice President" is a tribute to the Pence family's beloved rabbit. It was released a day before the Pence book, which is a bunny's-eye-view account of a day with Pence, in order to draw attention to his anti-gay positions.
Ellen then gave Oliver a physical challenge: hand out as many books as possible for a cash prize to The Trevor Project. One of the narrators of the Audible audiobook version is none other than RuPaul, whose name is synonymous with drag racing.
