It’s close to Easter time, and that means the Easter bunny will soon be stopping off at your house to drop off a basket of goodies.
But it looks like one bunny is going to give someone a headache this Easter season.
Former FBI Director James Comey is looking to bank on his firing by President Trump last year, and is releasing a tell-all book – “A Higher Loyalty” – that is rumored to contain damning details about Trump’s presidency.
The Washington DC-New York City news nexus is thrilled about the book, as they think it’ll contain ammunition to finally tank the Trump presidency. CNN’s Brian Stelter, a rabid liberal partisan, wrote enthusiastically about the book, touting it’s best-seller ranking on Amazon.com. From his obsequious write-up:
With an assist from President Trump, James Comey’s book is surging on the best sellers list. The book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” won’t be released until April 17. But on Sunday it was No.1 on Amazon’s constantly updated list of best sellers. The ranking reflects a sudden spike in pre-orders. On Saturday morning, it was No. 15. What caused the spike in the former FBI director’s book sales? Well it seems to be related to the president’s rhetoric.
At the time of Stelter’s writing, Comey’s book may have been at #1, but it’s already been surpassed by something unexpected: Comey’s tell-all memoir just got beat by a children’s book. And not just any children’s book, but one written about a pet of the Second Family!
Marlon Bundo is a bunny rabbit owned by the Pence family that has garnered quite the social media presence in the past few months. Already, his Instagram account has 18k followers.

“[#MarlonBundo’s] popularity sparked the idea for the mother-daughter book project. Because the role of the vice president isn’t well known, they hoped the book would be educational, as well as fun.” https://t.co/RqjyiQzFlF pic.twitter.com/S31xp9bjCs— Regnery Publishing (@Regnery) March 16, 2018
Bundo’s owner, Charlotte Pence, just wrote a book about the bunny’s life that skyrocketed to the top of the Amazon charts. Aimed at young readers and children, “Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President” gives a vivid portrayal of the life of a rabbit inside the office of the Vice President.
Bundo’s story is already such a big success that it has topped Comey’s book as Amazon’s #1 best-seller at the time of writing:
How’s that for an Easter surprise!
