GOP Senate candidate attacks John Oliver as 'out of touch' over gay rabbit book

A Republican lawmaker from Vice President Pence’s home state is hitting HBO host John Oliver over the “Last Week Tonight” host’s release of a children’s book spoofing one about the Pence family rabbit.

Rep. Luke MesserAllen (Luke) Lucas MesserK Street giants scoop up coveted ex-lawmakers Yoder, Messer land on K Street House GOP to force members to give up leadership positions if running for higher office MORE (R-Ind.) wrote in a post that it was “sad to see” the HBO host “belittle Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard PencePence posts, deletes photo of Trump campaign staff without face masks, not social distancing Pence threatens to deploy military if Pennsylvania governor doesn’t quell looting Pence on Floyd: ‘No tolerance for racism’ in US MORE’s faith and mock a children’s book the Pence family wrote together.”

Oliver’s book, “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo,” features the Pence family rabbit, Marlon Bundo, meeting a fellow male rabbit before being told (to their dismay) by a stink bug that boys must marry girls.

“There are a few small differences between the two books. You’ll notice right away that our rabbit has a bow tie, so there’s that,” Oliver said on his show Sunday, after criticizing Pence sharply on LGBT issues. “Also, our story is about Marlon Bundo falling in love with another boy rabbit, because our Marlon Bundo is gay.”

“More proof of how out of step media elites are with most Americans,” he wrote on Facebook.

Pence, a conservative Christian, is a top target of the LGBT community. Last month, he was called out by the first two openly gay U.S. Olympians.
