Marlon Bundo – A Fairytale about Mike Pence’s Gay Rabbit

By

Today (and I totally was unaware until my husband told me this morning haha I’m so not that person that takes stock of dates) is Sandy and my 2 year wedding anniversary!

Wow. It seems so short in the grand scheme of things when I know we have many years ahead of us. So much has happened and only more will continue to happen as we unite our powers in breaking the rules in the pursuit of doing good and leading by example. Check our IG’s if you want my goo goo ga ga details, but for now I wanted to bring up Marlon Bundo.

Marlon Bundo is the pet rabbit of the vice-president and his lady (did Trump ever get a dog?). Waking up (not to the snow, but) to “Children’s Book About Mike Pence’s Gay Bunny Jumps to No. 1” on The NY Times, after watching the hilarious clip below on Last Night with John Oliver made my day:

I suggest watching the whole piece, but if you’re short on time and curious as to who Marlon Bundo, the vice presidential pet, is skip ahead to 14:12. You’ll thank me afterwards.

And here he is on the Ellen show sharing this little wonder, which is simply, simply written, but such a chuckle.

It ended with “the Ellen audience was treated to free copies of the book after Ellen DeGeneres tasked Oliver with handing out as many as he could in 60 seconds. Each copy Oliver delivered garnered a $100 donation to one of the charities (from the Ellen Show) the books is benefiting, the Trevor Project (proceeds are also going to AIDS United), and while Oliver was able to earn $3,900 on his own, DeGeneres announced that HBO was rounding up his total to $10,000.” – Rolling Stone.

It’s currently sold out, but my husband and I ordered a copy for our nephew in New Orleans just the same. Proceeds from the project benefits a charity, the Trevor Project that was “founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24” so you really can’t go wrong in choosing to purchase this for a friend or family member, or maybe your non-censorship local library or school!
