Ellen's Audience Goes Wild for John Oliver's Gay Bunny Book

In response to Pence's book, John Oliver mocked the story on "Last Week Tonight" and released his own book, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo. (She is not the poet and educator Charlotte Pence, by the way.) She has described herself as "more of a moderate or an independent", in contrast to her conservative father and President Trump.

Oliver spent the segment mocking Pence, but he did say one thing he liked about the Vice President - "I kind of like his rabbit".

Oliver's book, A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, centers on Vice President Mike Pence's family pet and was released at the same time as Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President, a picture book written by Pence's daughter, Charlotte, and illustrated by his wife, Karen.

Oliver's book--a love story between Marlon Bundo and Wesley--is reportedly outselling Pence's.

The rabbit, Marlon Bundo, is the subject of both the Pences' and Oliver's book.

Google is looking to generate revenue from product searches
Shopping Actions is an effort by Google and retailers to counteract the popularity of Amazon. Over the past two years, mobile searches asking where to buy products soared by 85 percent.

Dedicated to "every bunny who has ever felt different", the audiobook version is voiced by LGBT+ actors Jim Parsons and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. It's basically a satirical send-up of Pence's book, starring Bundo. but, of course, the Veep's bunny is not out.

Proceeds of Mr Pence's book will be donated to art therapy programme Tracy's Kids and A21, a non-profit organisation fighting human trafficking. "TWO bunny books for charity", the caption of the post said.

"He [Pence] clearly, to put it in the nicest possible terms, is not a friend of the LGBTQ community", Oliver said before celebrating the book's top Amazon spot. For those thinking this will start a war of words, the Marlon Bundo Instagram account is apparently on board with all of this. "You can buy the second printing, so it'll take a few weeks".

But part of the inspiration for the children's book hits closer to home, Oliver revealed to DeGeneres.
