Turns out, it’s not only liberals digging John Oliver’s new children book making Mike Pence’s pet bunny Marlon Bundo gay and in love.

It all started with this week’s episode of Last Week Tonight. Oliver did a whole segment of Vice President Pence, including talking about fluffy Marlon Bundo.

Oliver’s monologue included a bit about the children’s book, Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of the Vice President. Penned by Pence’s daughter and illustrated by his wife, the story is a cute look at the rabbit.

It’s not the only one on the market, though.

Oliver and his team created their own illustrated children’s book, titled A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo. It makes Marlon Bundo gay and sees him fall in love with another rabbit. The audiobook version features the voices of Jim Parsons and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

It also happens to be outselling the Pence book. It now happens to be sold out most place, but Oliver and his team already announced a second run.

Partly thanks to Pence’s daughter

Charlotte Pence, the Veep’s daughter, happens to be one of those people buying Oliver’s version.

‘I have bought his book,’ she said. ‘He’s giving proceeds of the book to charity, and we’re also giving proceeds of our book to charity, so I really think that we can all get behind it.’

Proceeds from Oliver’s book goes to The Trevor Project and AIDS United. Meanwhile, the Pence family book donates to the art program Tracy’s Kids as well as A21, which fights human trafficking.

‘It doesn’t have to be divisive,’ Charlotte added. ‘I think that everybody can come together over Marlon. I also want to support those charities — I really mean that.’

As for criticism of her father, she said: ‘We live in a country where we have freedoms to speak out against our elected leaders. So whenever people protest, my dad always has this line, he says, “That’s what freedom looks like.” And it’s really true.’
