Vice President Mike Pence has a pet rabbit named Marlon Bundo.
No, this is not FAKE NEWS, or an alternative fact.
Its real, factual, information about the Vice President of the United States.
The rabbit made its first White House appearance on Tuesday, May 9, 2017.
Pences rabbit also has its own Instagram page (and its verified).
He hopped onto social media in late January.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Marlon Bundo has nearly 7,000 followers.
The bunny with the clever name even has as a personality in the Instagram captions.
For example, take a look at Bundos first post (below), which says Had a productive first day as #botus working hard to #makeamericagreatagain!
Yep, you guess it, that stands for Bunny of the United States.
Amazing. Truly innovative. Theyve revolutionized the hashtag. But dont tell the Donald, he might get jealous.
This bunny is apparently working his ass off.
Its not easy being a social media star.
Mike Pence has opposedgay marriage, but apparently hes OK with these two animals, who happen to be different species, getting romantic.
How tolerant of him.
It appears Pence leaves Marlon Bundo at home when traveling.
This bunny basically has its own action figure.
Well, most of the time, at least.
Heres Marlon Bundo on a plane.
It looks like Pence has at least two cats in addition to Marlon Bundo.
The cats, named Oreo and Pickle, do not appear to have their own Instagram accounts. Sad!
Marlon Bundo and Pencesapparent affection for animals in general makes the vice president feel slightly more human. The keyword here is slightly.
With that said, this also seems like a good time to remind everyone President Donald Trump has no pets. In fact, hes the first president in 150 years who doesnt have a pet, according to The Washington Post.
In other words, based on the presidents behavior, he arguably doesnt care much for animals.
Perhaps he should invite Marlon Bundo down to Mar-a-Lago some weekend. The little guy might grow on him.
