John Oliver Masterfully Skewers Mike Pence—and His Pet Rabbit

The "Last Week Tonight" host was in rare form on Sunday.

As the noose continues to tighten on Donald Trump, John Oliver looked forward a bit with a deep profile of Mike Pence.

Not only is Mike Pence is the only person Trump can’t fire, he’s an extremist who opposes women in the military, supports gay conversion therapy and supported a law that would legalize discrimination against gay people.

Despite being a Christian, Pence is just as dishonest as Trump—when Pence was confronted about Trump’s bald-faced lying about winning the popular vote, Pence called it “refreshing.”

Omarosa Manigault, who spent time with both in the White House, says people would miss trump if Pence ended up in office.

“We’d be begging for Trump back if Mike Pence became president,” she said. “He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things that are… I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t say that.'”

Monday is a big day for Pence, as his wife and daughter become published authors with the release of a children’s book about his pet bunny.

Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President tells the story of the life the vice president as he battles to take away people’s constitutional rights.

By coincidence, a second Marlon Bundo book will be coming out tomorrow, courtesy of John Oliver. It’s called a A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, and stars a gay bunny who battles an evil stinkbug to secure his right to marry. You can buy that here, with proceeds supporting two charities.
