He is even including a stop at the organization's headquarters in Colorado during the book tour for a new children's book based on the family's pet bunny, Marlon Bundo.

The segment also highlighted Pence's support for the SPLC designated hate group Focus on the Family, whose website has numerous anti-LGBT articles including "When a Loved One Says, "I'm Gay": The Stages of Grief". (The other BOTUS book, written by Charlotte Pence, the vice president's daughter, and second lady Karen Pence, was at No. 15 as of Monday morning). All proceeds go to the LGBT organizations the Trevor Project, which "provides crisis and suicide-prevention services for LGBT youths", and AIDS United.

Oliver said that the book is already on sale on Amazon, or BetterBundoBook.com. The story is a fictional account of a day in the life of the Pence family pet, a rabbit named Marlon Bundo. "This isn't some adult book telling Mike pence to go f**k himself, although in buying it, that's exactly what you would be doing. And isn't that the dream, at the end of the day?"

Middle East, Asian demand driving USA arms exports surge
U.S. arms exports jumped 25 percent in the 2013-2017 period compared with the previous five years, the SIPRI study showed. With the Middle East accounting for 49 percent of total USA arms exports, Saudi Arabia was by far its biggest customer.

"Marlon Bundo is the most likeable thing about an otherwise unlikeable man", Oliver said during the segment. "Just like the real Marlon Bundo". "Saying you don't support conversion therapy and then calling Dobson your "mentor" is like saying you're a 'staunch vegetarian and a law-abiding citizen, and by the way, please meet my lifelong friend and mentor the Hamburlgar, '" he quipped.

In Oliver's version - the audio book of which features an impressive roster of voice overs, from Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ellie Kemper, RuPaul, and John Lithgow - Pence's rabbit is gay. 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".
