It's hard for a sentence to get much better than 'John Oliver is trolling Mike Pence with a book about a gay rabbit'.
But try this for size: 'John Oliver is trolling Mike Pence with a book about a gay rabbit and a copy will soon be available at every public grammar school in Indiana'. Beautiful, mesmerising and 100 per cent factually accurate.
Bewildered? Confused? Not up-to-date with your gay rabbit news? Basically, the family of the Vice President Mike Pence inexplicably released a book about their pet rabbit called Marlon Bundo and John Oliver wrote his own version with one crucial difference: his rabbit is gay, a wonderfully loud reference to Pence's disturbing record on LGBT+ rights.
Now, Max Mutchnick, the Emmy-winning co-creator of Will & Grace, has purchased 1,121 copies of John Oliver's A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo and will donate one copy to every public grammar school in Indiana in a mighty push back against intolerance.
