Well, that was fast! Just one day after the poorly thought out Trump-Pence logo was unveiled, it completely vanished from Trump’s campaign website and the RNC’s website overnight.
We think they should have carried that logo to term rather than aborting it.
The logo became the laughingstock of the internet immediately after its release due to the naughty ‘T’ doing something sexual to the helpless ‘P’ hole in the logo. Others were also quick to deride the logo for the ‘TP’ which is the abbreviation for toilet paper, saying it was awfully fitting.

Logo making is a sensitive business. Jeb! received ceaseless derision when he rolled out his campaign logo that featured his name with an exclamation point. And Hillary Clinton was harped on because the red arrow in her logo points to the right rather than to the left. But Trump’s logo takes the cake this election season as the absolute worst. What were they thinking!? Especially since the RNC’s agenda comes out hard against LGBT rights and pornography.
Trump is so thin-skinned there was no way that logo would stand for very long.
When the logo was first pulled from Trump’s website, it went back to just a picture of Trump with his “Make America Great Again” logo. Now, the website features a picture of Trump and Pence sans logo. Even if their graphic designer fixes the logo so it no longer looks like the T is banging the P, the abbreviation of the two names will remain TP and will launch 1,000 asswipe jokes over the rest of the election. All hail the election Gods!
No Democrat could have imagined a better pairing for Donald Trump’s awful campaign. After all the shit he’s put us through, we deserve some TP.
And Trump’s rollout of Pence as his VP was every bit as awkward as that logo. The announcement stutter-stepped as news of Pence being picked was leaked to the press. Then insiders came out and told the press that Trump tried to get out of nominating Pence. Then the announcement was postponed due to the attacks in Nice, France. Then the logo rolled out and was endlessly mocked, and finally in a bizarre speech, Trump couldn’t stop talking about himself, his primary victory, and could barely stay on the topic of Pence. When Pence finally was introduced as the Veep, Trump walked off stage leaving Pence all alone, rather than standing behind him like most nominees do.
If this is how he handles something as simple as a VP rollout, imagine when it comes down to making quick, crucial decisions that have an effect on our country’s future.
