The new book, "Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of the Vice President", written by Charlotte Pence, the vice president's daughter, and illustrated by Karen Pence, his wife, was released on Monday.

Comedian John Oliver has hit out at Mike Pence with a lovely pro-LGBT parody of a children's book about the Vice President's rabbit.

So Oliver published a children's book about Pence's gay bunny.

In Oliver's book, Marlon Bundo is gay and falls in love with a boy rabbit, created to troll Pence for his LGBT policies. All proceeds are going to the Trevor Project and AIDS United, which are great reasons to pick up a copy, in addition to the fact that it'll probably really annoy Pence.

Former Scottish National Party leader Salmond faced similar criticism when he became a presenter for RT a year ago . Such an idea would probably mean stopping FA president Prince William from attending the games.

On "Last Week Tonight", Oliver also played an animated teaser for his children's book. Note, the video has strong language and is uncensored. Oliver told viewers they could immediately buy the book at Amazon, or at BetterBundoBook.com. It was the Focus on the Family tour stop that raised Oliver's hackles, and inspired the book.

Among other late-night hosts, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel offered a short on-air spoof past year of the Pences' Marlon Bundo book.

It's fairly safe to say that the vast majority of Americans who find themselves in opposition to the Trump administration, whether it be on a factual, logical or philosophical basis, already understand how abhorrent Vice President Mike Pence's brand of social conservatism truly is.

John Oliver takes a hard look at Mike Pence, the man who would be president, you know, if something happened to Donald Trump. The book is described this way: "With its message of tolerance and advocacy, this charming children's book explores issues of same-sex marriage and democracy". "We are so grateful to be the beneficiary of books sold". MORE's unreleased book from the No. 1 spot on the Amazon best-sellers list. Except in his book, Marlon Bundo is totally gay. "Sweet, funny, and beautifully illustrated, this book is dedicated to every bunny who has ever felt different". An audiobook version is also available with the voices of Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garland, Jack MacBrayer, Ellie Kemper, RuPaul, and John Lithgow.
