John Oliver Expertly Trolls Mike Pence by Releasing Rival Children's Book About VP's Gay Pet Bunny, Marlon Bundo

All proceeds of "A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo" go toward charities that support the LGBT community to counteract vice president's anti-gay views.

John Oliver isn't a fan of Vice President Mike Pence's anti-LGBT views, but he doesn't mind the conservative politician's pet bunny, Marlon Bundo, so he has published a children's book centering on the political pet to raise money for the Trevor Project.

The HBO host announced the release of "A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo" (now available on Amazon) on Sunday's "Last Week Tonight," during a deep dive into Pence's history of denying his support for gay conversion therapy -- while openly praising and admiring the man behind Focus on the Family, an anti-LGBT organization that views homosexuality as a treatable illness. 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 story of a Very Special boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny," the description for the comedian's book reads. "Meet Marlon Bundo, a lonely bunny who lives with his Grampa -- the vice president of the United States. But on this Very Special Day, Marlon's life is about to change forever..."

"This is actually a book for children," Oliver stressed. "This isn't some adult book telling Mike Pence to go f-ck himself, although in buying it, that is exactly what you'd be doing."

The late-night host followed up his pitch with a preview of the audio version of the book, featuring the voices of TV stars Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garland, Ellie Kemper, John Lithgow, Jack McBrayer and RuPaul.
