Hollywood still hasn’t solved its sexual predator problem, but dammit, they’ll fight the scourge of Mike Pence if it kills them!
The Pence family is releasing a children’s book, “Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President,” about their pet rabbit. And so, last night on “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver announced that he’s releasing a new book in response to the Pence’s story. Only in Oliver’s book, Marlon Bundo is gay. Because of course.

“Selling more books than Pence will probably *really* piss him off,” John Oliver said of his gay children's book featuring the VP's pet bunny, Marlon Bundo https://t.co/kDtiRZzftd

Wow. This is, like, so witty and clever!
“It turns out, in a complete coincidence, we also wrote a book about Mike Pence’s rabbit that is also being published. In fact, while his is out tomorrow, ours is being released right now,” Oliver announced on his HBO program.
“Now, there are a few small differences between the two books,” said Oliver. “You’ll notice right away that our rabbit has a bow tie, so there’s that. Also, our story is about Marlon Bundo falling in love with another boy rabbit, because our Marlon Bundo is gay—just like the real Marlon Bundo.”
Yes, Oliver’s team crafted a gay love story for children featuring Pence’s pet rabbit in order to get under the VP’s skin, given the politician’s history of promoting anti-LGBT policies.
Call us crazy, but it seems like Pence is the one getting under people’s skin. And all he has to do is exist.

Who are the haters here? Not Mike Pence. Pence’s views on homosexuality are in line with his faith, but last time we checked, he still believed in the value of human life. That’s more than most of these self-righteous celebrities can say.
Meanwhile, something tells us that Pence will be just fine.
Why would that piss off Pence exactly?

I just don’t think all this stuff pisses off Pence the way the left likes to think it does.

Take a bow, John Oliver and friends:
I missed the fact that the Pence rabbit book that John Oliver determined was worth trolling wasn't even a Mike Pence joint. It was written by his 24-year-old daughter, for kids, and the proceeds go to an art therapy and anti-slavery org. https://t.co/Cgl1e2TQVM
