Over the weekend, comedian John Oliver announced that he would be publishing A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, a book about Mike Pence’s pet bunny in which the bunny is gay, to compete with Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President, a book written by the Pences about their pet bunny.
Ellen had Oliver on her show to promote the book.
Ellen pointed out that Oliver’s book is beating Pence’s book on Amazon. Oliver said that they’re already out of books because he didn’t think so many people would buy it – but more copies are already being printed.
He said that one of the reasons he worked on the book is because he wanted something to read to his son that “paints the world in the light that you want it to be rather than the way it’s currently being painted.”
