On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, John Oliver spent 20 minutes talking about Vice President Mike Pence, the one White House official President Trump can't fire. FOTF has a history of sponsoring gay conversion therapy programs disguised with names like "Love Won Out" and as recently as a year ago Pence appeared before the organization to praise it. "This isn't some adult book telling Mike Pence to go fuck himself", he said. 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.

The book "A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo,"created by the team at "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver", was published one day before the release of its inspiration - a picture book called "Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President", written by the VP's daughter Charlotte and his wife Karen".

Last night John Oliver reminded his viewers that Mike Pence is an bad, smug, supercilious, bigoted piece of shit-an very bad, smug, supercilious, bigoted piece of shit with a children's book coming out today.

Meet Marlon Bundo, a lonely bunny who lives with his Grampa, Mike Pence - the Vice President of the United States. Well, Oliver promised to say one thing he likes about Pence at the beginning and it's the start of a wonderful stunt that only Last Week Tonight can pull off. Pence's constitutional immunity from being sacked is actually worrisome, "because he's synonymous with some extreme positions", especially on abortion and gay rights, Oliver said.

"There are a few small differences between the two books". You'll notice right away that our rabbit has a bow tie. His "Marlon Bundo" audiobook (Partially Important Productions) features narration from such celebrity voices as Jim Parsons, John Lithgow, RuPaul, Ellie Kemper and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. "This is a real book for children", Oliver said.

In comparison, the pre-release of the Pence family's book has 23 one-star reviews, many of which tell would-be customers to buy the parody instead. "This is a sweet story about Marlon Bundo falling in love". All proceeds are going to the Trevor Project and AIDS United, which are great reasons to pick up a copy, in addition to the fact that it'll probably really annoy Pence.
