On Friday afternoon shortly after Donald Trump unceremoniously announced his vice presidential pick Mike Pence via Twitter, the campaign issued a new official logo, an interlocked T and P, forming what appears to be an American flag.
Besides the obvious Polo Ralph Lauren similarities the logo bears, some people took issue with the way the letter “T” and “P” were placed in the image.
In particular, as illustrated by this GIF, the two letters in the logo appeared to be *ahem* somewhat sexual.

The Trump/Pence logo has the P being what can only be described as “schlonged” by the T. Great work, guys.

Then there were others who preferred the potty humor aspect of the whole thing, playing on the “TP” as in “toilet paper.” Ring of Fire’s own Farron Cousins got in on the fun and sent out this little quip:
TP – We’re the Shit, Literally! #TrumpPenceCampaignSlogans

Finally, there were those with a darker take who saw something much more nefarious in the particular melding of the letters.

No matter how you dice it, the new Trump/Pence logo is not doing well in the social media world at all, which makes us excited because nothing happens to Trump in the social media world that he doesn’t respond to, and we’re not sure how he can explain his way out of this one.
This couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy!
