Is it just a bad logo or a logo that makes you think bad thoughts?

It is a logo I thought was somewhat amateurish, but now think is intentionally hilarious. And honestly, I kind of expect that playfulness is what Trump was going for -- it's a ready-made meme.

Unknown said...

It looks like someone wants to make sure Pence is trumped.

John said...

Bad thoughts.

MisterBuddwing said...

Well, we got a fair amount of mileage out of mocking Hillary Clinton's "H" logo - goose, gander.

rhhardin said...

Great, a fuck logo with the acronym toilet paper.

TP your house.

rhhardin said...

You know, the abbreviated decibels dB to prevent engineering student doodling.

This is going to be doggy style in no time.

Saint Croix said...

I think Pence is fucked!

I expect Donnie to use the phrase, "My number two" a lot.

The juvenile left will love it.

Not That There's Anything Wrong With a bad logo.

It makes me think about Trump's short, stubby fingers being embraced in Mike Pence's hearty handclasp. Nothing more than that. Believe me, there's nothing more than that and if you think otherwise, you are a disgusting person. A bad, disgusting person. Very bad. Because this logo is going to be Great for this campaign. It is going to Make this Campaign Great Again. Believe me, it is going to be so great again, you are all going to say, "But Mr. Trump, we can't take any more Greatness! Your Greatness is already huge!

Trust me on this. This is what I understand many Great people are saying about all of this.

Is this a signal to the gays?

Not as bad this.

Interesting to read Newt's secret opinions about Donald Trump.

Chuck said...

Funny stuff. Within, like minutes. When doddering John Dingell is making fun of your campaign, you know that you are fu-- well, let's just say that something is happening with your T and your P.

TP ~ toilet paper

Apologies to toilet paper!

Chuck said...

Dan Quayle got off to a better start than this.

Indeed, I always liked Quayle and he was a bigger rising star in Indiana than Mike Pence ever was. Quayle never did one wrong thing, and if there had been a conservative media back in those days I think Quayle's public life would have had a better outcome.

These seem like unforced errors on the part of the Trump campaign staff. If there is a Trump campaign staff.

"How do we make the transition from, you know, language for fourth graders to real policy, I don't know."

Wow, good one Gingrich.

glenn said...

Dear Lefties.

The Donald is jerking your chain again. And you fell for it again.

Henry1944 said...

"At one point, Gingrich suggested he was shocked to hear of a highly educated supporter of Trump's. "I had a very sophisticated medical doctor in Des Moines write me two days ago and say he sent a thousand dollar check to Trump. And I wrote back and said what are you doing?""

Another good one by Gingrich.

tim maguire said...

If i didn't know better, i'd think the stars on the flag spelled TJ, not TP. And I can't see Trump Pence without thinking Tuppence.

But it's a bad combination, I'm not surprised they're stretching to make it not bad.

eric said...

Gingrich, like the Donald, has a great sense of humor. I'd have been happy with Newt. Those two would have had some great laughs on the campaign trail.

Oh well, opportunity lost.

CStanley said...

Are you dyslexic, tim maguire?

Michael said...

Great logo. Winning logo. Anything that pisses off progs or make them even a tiny bit smugger is what we are after. Trump has this down to an art form. Progs love art and artists and are brimming with good taste. This will make them howl with smuggisity. Love the logo.

readering said...

Go to google images. All the good TP's were taken.

Chuck said...

Even more TrumpPence logo hilarity:

These jokes are writing themselves at this point.

Quaestor said...

Bad logo.

tim in vermont said...

It's a bad logo, but I am not sure it rises to felonious conduct, so advantage Trump.

Phil 3:14 said...

BOHICA Mike.

Clyde said...

At least Hillary was smart enough not to put a slit on the end of her "I'm With Her" arrow on her logo.

tim in vermont said...

BTW, isn't my avatar a great logo? Not authoritarian in any way, not reminiscent of anything?

Buehler?...

Buehler....?



John said...

Thrust and Penetrate

David said...

They are going to TP the entire country.

It really is a shitty logo, even with out the TP joke.

tim in vermont said...

Once again, our two champions of the right and the left fail us.

The New Yorker's take on Hillary's logo

So yeah Chuck, the Trump logo is the butt of jokes, so was Hillary's and so Hillary's remains.

Cacimbo Cacimbo said...

I look at
TRUMP
PENCE
and think
TRUMP
FENCE.

I find the TP/flag logo to be ugly - aside from any sexual connotations.

The Cracker Unknown said...

You're assuming it was unintentional? That there's no one in Trump's campaign who would have questioned it if it was unintentional? I'm guessing Trump wants the logo to be talked about. In any terms you like, so long as you do talk about it.

John said...

Another case of " He meant to do that".

Hillary is, by necessity, a Nowhere Woman. Trump is very much Right Here. For better or worse remains to be seen.

Who'd have thought Trump Pence making America Great Again would start with flag desecration.

One stripe for each of the seven states in the original Confederated States of America.

... And because he figured things worked out so well with the Star of David, might as well go with the edgy concept...

Sometimes a logo is just a logo.

Freeman Hunt said...

He's hearkening by to the bygone days of Team America: World Police.

Joe said...

Logo sucks, but I don't vote based on logos.

Wayne said...

We need some TP to wipe out all the $h!t in DC

Saint Croix said...

good ones from Twitter...

"You want to come over and Trump logo?"

That's Hillary's, right?

stlcdr said...

The letters look very much like a University logo. Pretty bland. The TP connotation obviously doesn't help.

However, I'm wondering about the mockery of logos, particularly in a presidential campaign. It seems like all except Obama abandoned the logo once the need for such was gone.

"Are you going to vote for someone with a bad logo? You looser."

Distractions.

CJ said...

Honestly it's good bait to catch dishonest reporters and anger more Trump voters. Plus it gives Trump an excuse to be charmingly crass if he ever gets into trouble in an interview.

"My specific plan to deal with Putin? Well, I mean, look - the people that say I can't deal with Putin are the same people that say my logo looks like a [gestures]. You know. These people are children! They're children! Come on."


mockturtle said...

It's not as bad as 'The Woman Card'.

Bonkti said...

TP, the right tool for cleaning up the mess.

We are going to need a lot of TP.

Mark said...

It appears that he has dumped the logo already.

Even the Donald realizes its a lower .... in hindsight.
