John Oliver’s HBO Show Releases New Book Portraying Pence Family Bunny as Gay

The HBO show “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” has written a spoof of the Pence family’s book about its pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, ridiculing the Pences by describing the rabbit as gay.

The Pence book, “A Day in the Life of the Vice President,” was written by Vice President Pence’s daughter Charlotte and illustrated by Second Lady Karen Pence. The Oliver-produced book, written by one of his show’s writers, was released Sunday and announced on his program Sunday night. It already appears to be #1 on Amazon in books and had somehow garnered more than 650 reviews by Monday morning, almost all of them five stars.

“It turns out, in a complete coincidence, we also wrote a book about Mike Pence’s rabbit that has also been published,” Oliver said on his show. “In fact, while his is out tomorrow, ours is released right now. Now, there are a few small differences between the two books . . . our Marlon Bundo is gay.”

From the description on Amazon:

HBO’s Emmy-winning Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents a picture book about a Very Special boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny.

Meet Marlon Bundo, a lonely bunny who lives with his Grampa, Mike Pence – the Vice President of the United States. But on this Very Special Day, Marlon’s life is about to change forever…

With its message of tolerance and advocacy, this charming children’s book explores issues of same-sex marriage and democracy. Sweet, funny, and beautifully illustrated, this book is dedicated to every bunny who has ever felt different.

100% of Last Week Tonight‘s proceeds will be donated to The Trevor Project and AIDS United.

And from the description of the Pence family’s book, which is also doing well at #15 on Amazon:

From the moment he hopped into the home of America’s “Second Family,” black-and-white bunny rabbit Marlon Bundo captured the hearts of Vice President Mike Pence, his wife Karen, and his children Michael, Charlotte, and Audrey. 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! With his appearances at official White House events, his rides on Air Force 2, and his popular Instagram account, Marlon Bundo has become a beloved member of the Trump-Pence administration.

So how does a bunny experience a day in the life of the Vice President? 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.

I imagine this will actually goose sales for the Pence book, which is published by Regnery, which also published my biography of Stephen Bannon. People already get John Oliver, but they might not know the Pences have produced a book about their rabbit. I didn’t, or if I did, I had forgotten.

Below is a 20-minute tirade about Pence delivered Sunday night by Oliver. The part about the rabbit book begins at about the 14:00 mark. Having John Oliver rant and rave about him will also help boost Pence’s profile and his reputation with the GOP base.

  1. What is wrong with these people. I get the humor with the book and that It also appeals to their base but the tirades all around are simply over the top. Interesting that the president has openly talked about going after the Chinese regarding movie piracy. That would help their industry immensely. I guess that would only be meaningful if who ever announced it was lock step with their views.

  2. Mike Pence is a pretty normal, mainstream Republican conservative, and there are maybe 150 million Americans who either fit or relate sympathetically to that profile. Go ahead, Leftists, and insult him. That tells us exactly what we need to know about you and your minority views. Let’s just see what really happens in 2020.

  3. A gay bunny. A homosexual rabbit?
    A LGBTxyz animal looking for another LGBTxyz to mate with?
    That’s what the Dems have fallen to – parody that demeans a decent family and their beloved pet for laughs.
    Without regard to the sensibilities of the Pence family,
    oh crap. what evil, degenerate people call themselves Democrats.

    • Actually, research has confirmed that homosexuality does exist within the animal kingdom. However, Oliver is an ass and his type of “humour” is pathetic and insulting.

  4. Ohh, the continuing quest by those on the Left; “pathetic” doesn’t even scratch the surface to describe their angst. And, to think that these people are functioning adults–

  5. This comment is completely not about the Pence family pet. It’s not even about Oliver’s imaginary LGBTQ rabbit. It’s more about the Oliver zeitgeist. Last night my wife suggested we see “A Wrinkle In Time”. I patiently explained that all references to Jesus and God and Christianity in the book had been removed from the movie. That made her sad, but then she did not any longer wish to see “A Wrinkle In Time”. Then she suggested that if Hollywood tried to remake “Gone With The Wind”, they wouldn’t even have slavery. Playing along with her, I suggested that Ashley and Rhett would be lovers. Thing is, neither of us are crazy. That’s what John Oliver and his culture of Hollywood do.

  6. Never waste a crisis. Never waste an event. Never waste a moment.

    I wonder how long before the Pence book was released this “satire” was planned and prepared?

    Oh, so delicious! Can you imagine the consternation if Pence’s bunny turned out to be gay? Gay bunny sex in the Second Family! They’d probably kill the rabbit and eat him – no, they’d never eat a GAY rabbit, might be catching ….

    And so for and so on in high Prog glee.

  7. It’s been a real eye-opener just how vicious, evil, and hateful the left are. How can you possibly spend so much energy on such nice people. Reminds me of the attack on Chip and Joanna Gaines, Fixer Upper (HGTV). The left has no logic, reason, evidence, proof behind their attacks. The only interest is winning and power. Since they stand for nothing but lies, they use every opportunity knowing that their base only reads headlines.

  8. Stormy Davis & Marlon Bundo: new trigger names associated with depravity from the twisted mentalities housed in media manikins & journalusts for the kiddies to banty about on the playground.
