Why Are Two Books About Mike Pence’s Bunny Scaling the Best-Seller Lists – And Why Is the Spoof One Winning?

Why Are Two Books About Mike Pence’s Bunny Scaling the Best-Seller Lists – And Why Is the Spoof One Winning?by

US Vice President Mike Pence’s family, behind all the political endeavor and public appearance, have been courting many an Instagram fan with regular updates on their pet bunny – Marlon Bundo – and, this week, it seems that he is the subject of not only his own official book on his life as part of the Vice Presidency, but that he is scaling Amazon’s book sales charts as part of a rebuttal book, authored by Jill Twiss on behalf of TV comedian and presenter John Oliver (with the bunny himself also getting a credit). The book is causing something of a stir – mainly because it depicts a gay romance between Bundo and another male bunny living nearby.

The one book – ‘Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President’ – is written by Charlotte Pence, the VP’s daughter, and is illustrated by his wife Karen. The rival book – ‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo’ – has been written and launched as a defiant response to Vice President Pence’s record of opposing the rights of homosexual and transgender people living in the US. Oliver announced the release of the book alongside Pence’s original intended work and, at the time of writing, Twiss’ take on an openly-gay Marlon Bundo appears to be winning over online shoppers more. It’s also – amusingly – outselling the memoirs of former FBI director James Comey, who was famously ousted by Donald Trump and whom testified in investigations regarding the supposed collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian agents.

Oliver and Twiss’ book has an audiobook version which has also beaten Comey’s memoirs to the punch, with a number of huge US TV stars having taken part in the recording. Featured actors included Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) as Marlon Bundo himself, alongside Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), John Lithgow (Third Rock From The Sun, Dexter) and RuPaul – and with the book offering all proceeds to LGBT charity The Trevor Project and AIDS United, Marlon Bundo’s owner Charlotte Pence has seen a good side to the rivalry.

“His (Oliver’s) book is contributing to charities that I think we can all get behind – we have two books giving to charities that are about bunnies, so I’m all for it really,” Ms Pence advised to Fox Business. Pence’s book, likewise, is donating to good causes – with a share of profits from sales going to anti human trafficking charity A21. Whether you buy one, or both – you’ll be helping good causes all the same!
