A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo

A Pride-approved coffee table children's book

by

Vice President Mike Pence has a long track record of antagonism to LGBT rights. He also has a pet rabbit named Marlon Bundo, about which his daughter penned and wife illustrated a children's book, Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President. In response, the HBO comedy-news program Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presented the book A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, written by Jill Twiss and lovingly illustrated in watercolor by EG Keller, which describes Pence's pet as being in a same-sex relationship. The couple is viciously opposed by a stink bug that bears the VP's trademark snow-white, LEGO-man hairstyle. It's a lovely tale about a clash of contemporary mores and overcoming naysayers—an ideal children's book for a new generation and a Pride-approved addition to any coffee table.
