Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents: A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo

A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo was conceptualised as a loose parody of Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President, a children's book written by Mike Pence's daughter Charlotte Pence and illustrated by his wife Karen Pence.

On March 18, 2018, the publication of both books was used as a comedy piece on Last Week Tonight to raise awareness of Mike Pence's stated anti-LGBT attitudes. John Oliver stated that Pence's pet rabbit was the one thing he liked about Pence, and that because of this, he had taken issue with the real-life Marlon Bundo having to make a stop at the anti-LGBT organisation Focus on the Family during an upcoming promotional book tour with the Pences. With the Pences' book scheduled to appear on March 19, John Oliver announced the publication of a "better Bundo book" at that very moment (so preceding the Pences' book).

A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is an actual children's story about marriage equality and democracy, rather than a straight-up parody of the Pences' book. It nevertheless contains some stabs at Mike Pence, with the Marlon Bundo character claiming that Pence "isn't very fun" and a stink bug character sporting a white hairdo looking like Pence's.

I bought this and it's wonderful - I paid more too but totally worth it
