John Oliver Topped Mike Pence on Amazon With His Gay Bunny Book

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver dedicated a large segment of his show on Sunday to attacking Vice President Mike Pence, but in doing so he attacked a book about Pence's bunny published Monday by Pence's 24-year-old daughter, Charlotte Rose. In the book, the family's pet rabbit travels around Washington, D.C., as "Grampa" Pence goes about his official duties.

The Pence book is being outsold by both the hardcover version of Oliver and Twiss's book, but also the audiobook version, which is voiced by Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garlin, Ellie Kemper, John Lithgow, Jack McBrayer, and RuPaul. I believe this is a win for everyone, since we get to take yet another stab at the Trump Administration...and all of the proceeds of the book are going to The Trevor Project as well as AIDS United Charity, which support LGBTQ youth. Among with many issues with Pence, Oliver highlighted the extreme homophobia of the politician.

I'm a regular watcher of ABC's The View and recently had to suffer through Charlotte Pence plugging the children's book.

"Please, 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. She posted a photo to her social media claiming she believes her Bundo looks great in a bow tie and complimented the charity donations.




Money made from Oliver's book will go toward AIDS United, a group dedicated to ending the AIDS epidemic in the USA, and the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization that provides support to young members of the LGBT community.

Sensing an opportunity, Oliver put two and two together.

Funds from the Pence's book will be donated to Tracy's Kids, which provides young cancer patients with art therapy.

But Charlotte Pence, appearing with her mom, Karen Pence, on Fox on Tuesday, seemed to be much more nonchalant about the looming rivalry.
