Charlotte Pence, daughter of Vice President Paul Pence , says she purchased the gay and lesbian parody of the girl book about the family bunny revealed on “ Last Week Tonight” upon Sunday by John Oliver .
“ I have purchased his book , ” she told The Hill. “ He’ s giving profits of the book to charity, plus we’ re also giving proceeds of our own book to charity, so I think that we can all get at the rear of it. ”
In the “ Last Week Tonight” edition, penned by show writer Jill Twiss and illustrated by FOR EXAMPLE Keller, Marlon Bundo is gay and lesbian and persecuted by a stinkbug having a strong resemblance to Mike Pence, who is notoriously hostile to LBGTQ issues.
Proceeds from the Pence family book will benefit Tracy’ s Kids , an art system for children with cancer, plus A21 , which arguements human trafficking. Sales from the “ Last Week Tonight” version may fund the Trevor Task , which supports LGBTQ youngsters, as well as the AIDS United charity.
“ I also want to support these charities, ” Charlotte Pence informed The Hill. “ I really imply that. ”
The “ A week ago Tonight” book shot to #1 on the Amazon children’ s publications bestsellers chart and as of earlier Wednesday, remains in that position in spite of being out of stock. The Amazon kindle version is #2 while the Pence family’ s book is at #3.
Pence said there was room with regard to both Bundo books.
“ It doesn’ t have to be divisive, ” she told The Slope. “ I think that everybody can come jointly over Marlon. ”
