Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and his partner Marlon Reis read their children, Caspian Julius and Cora Barucha, “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” for a family storytime streamed live on Facebook on Thursday.
Polis, who is running for Colorado governor in the Democratic primary set for June 26, streamed the live reading from his children’s bedroom. The book, written by Jill Twiss, is a parody of Charlotte Pence’s new children’s book, “Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President.” In Twiss’ version, Vice President Mike Pence’s pet bunny Marlon Bundo falls in love with a boy bunny.
“‘Different is not bad. Different is special.’ Tonight before bedtime Marlon and I are reading A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo to our son and daughter. Tune in with us and please share this inclusive message far and wide,” Polis captioned the stream.
Polis has served in Congress since 2009.
