The late night shows are waging war on President Trump and his administration.
These “comedians” consider it an enormous talent to make predictable anti-Trump jokes.
But one late night host just made the wrong move.
Mike Pence’s daughter, Charlotte, recently released a children’s book titled, “Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of the Vice President,” showcasing her father’s day in the White House from their pet rabbit’s point of view.
Pence’s wife Karen did the artwork,with all proceeds going towards A21, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending human trafficking.
Noble cause, don’t you think?
But John Oliver of HBO’s Last Week Tonight crossed the line this past Sunday when he announced the release of his parody to the book.
In Oliver’s rendition, “Marlon Bundo” meets another boy bunny and they fall in love and get married.
It’s clear it’s supposed to be considered a brilliant jab at Mike Pence’s views on same-sex marriage.
The New York Post reports:
“Mike Pence just can’t get out of second place.
The vice president’s family on Monday released a children’s book about their real-life pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo — but it’s already being outsold by a gay rights parody version published by “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver.
Oliver’s “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” — which casts the rabbit as a “very special boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny” and documents his fight against a Pence-esque stinkbug who opposes gay marriage — rocketed to the top of Amazon’s charts after the British funnyman announced it on his show Sunday night.
“Buy it for your children, buy it for any child you know, or just buy it because you know it would annoy Mike Pence,” Oliver said on his show, which focused on Pence’s history of opposing gay rights.
“Marlon Bundo’s Day in the life of the Vice President,” written by Pence’s wife, Karen, and their daughter Charlotte, was ranked 11th on Amazon’s book charts Monday. The Marlin Bundo in this version does not fall in love with another boy bunny — rather, the story follows “Bundo along as he hops after ‘Grampa’ (Vice President Mike Pence),” according to the blurb.
Oliver said he’s donating all proceeds of his book to LGBT advocacy group the Trevor Project and health non-profit AIDS United.”
The fact that John Oliver’s book is outperforming the Pences’ book only proves how easily entertained the liberals must be.
Meanwhile, whileOliver was announcing his book’s release, Pence was actually doing something quite honorable.
