The Internet Responds to New Trump/Pence Logo

The Internet Responds to New Trump/Pence Logo

TP 2016!

With all the money, all the resources, and all the graphic design talent at their disposal, the Trump campaign, in conjunction with the RNC’s joint fundraising committee, decided to roll with TP2016. T.P. Which, given how the 2016 cycle has gone, I suppose is par for the course.

Shortly after Trump tweeted confirmation he’d selected Indiana’s Governor Pence as his running mate, the new logo graced a fundraising email and was slapped across the internet for all to see (and mock).

The logo is rather…suggestive. At least to many a politico and casual observer.

This former Congressman wonders:


What could’ve been…

And scene:

Personally, I hate it. It’s busy, awkward, cheap, and bit pervy. But, it’s perfect for the 2016 dumpster fire. So at least there’s that?

Typical T-rumpian “class”…

    For some reason I can’t reply to you below, so …. you really are stupid. You really, really, really are stupid. I don’t know the meaning of the term “straw man”? Not once did I mention support of Trump. I commented on the juvenile tendencies of posters here, like you. Try again.

      Ragspierre in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 4:51 pm

      I don’t know the meaning of the term “straw man”?
      No. You don’t. And apparently you don’t know the meaning of “stupid” or “really, really”, either.

      You’ve posted on LI enough for you to be a demonstrated T-rump sucker. Deny it, and you’ll be a demonstrated liar, too!

        Hanzo in reply to Ragspierre. | July 15, 2016 at 6:34 pm

        Hey douchebucket, you think someone is afraid of you? This is the internet, moron. What are you gonna’ do, report me? I do not give a damn, you idiot.

        Yes, straw man argument, if I have to explain it to you that only reinforces what I said about you before.

        No, dum dum, I’m not a Trump supporter. Will I vote for him, hell yes. What about you? I supported Cruz during the primaries, but I’m smart enough to know Hitlery must go.

        Oh golly, some retard named “Rags” is gonna’ try to prove I lied. What a pity.

        Here’s one for you, in the same vein your humor comes from, let’s call you “Rags” as an allusion to you being a pile of women’s used kotex, how’s that?

        You really make me laugh, you fancy yourself as an intellectual giant and everyone must scurry away in the wake of Rags’ (or “Used Kotex”, which do you prefer?) supposed superiority. Egoists, such as yourself, are a blight to any forum, especially this one.

          inspectorudy in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 7:10 pm

          Professor, please throw this vile thing off of LI. We don’t need his humor(?), intellect(?), filth!

        Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | July 15, 2016 at 6:54 pm

        Golly, honey! I didn’t mean to get you all wee-weed up!

        The straw-man fallacy has a meaning, and it can be defined by useing just three terms. None of which you comprehend.

        I predict you won’t be here long. Oh, and BTW, you aren’t even original in your ad hominem (that’s another logical fallacy you don’t comprehend.) I’ve been called WAY worse.


          Hanzo in reply to Ragspierre. | July 15, 2016 at 7:25 pm

          You got no one “wee-weed” up, cupcake, I think your tough guy pose is hilarious!

          Yes, the other mental midget absolutely attempted a straw man argument against me. Are you, sincerely, really.THAT. stupid?

          Oh, I’m most assured you’ve been called worse, resident trolls always are maligned, and properly so. Sorry I’m not the first to refer to you as “Used Kotex”, I was hoping that I was. I’m sure every time someone here calls you “Rags” that’s what they have in mind. I’ve been on here probably before you were, sweetie. Like since the beginning, before WordPress, I’d say around 2009, if William’s site has been on the internet that long, I’m not sure. Just because I don’t hang around the comment section doesn’t mean I’ve not perused William’s site for quite a while. The only “contribution” you add to this site is snide remarks, at best. But why waste my time on a troll/turd? Later, dude.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | July 15, 2016 at 7:49 pm

          Well, OK, then!

          Cite the three elements of a straw man fallacy and fit them to your (hilariously stupid) misapplication of the fallacy to the “other mental midget”.

          That should be no step for a great mind like yours, so long experienced in interwebbing…

          Hanzo in reply to Ragspierre. | July 18, 2016 at 11:46 am

          Fairly easy rags, he tried to refute what I said by alluding I was a Trump supporter by saying Trump was/is my favorite person in the world, or words to that effect. I never said anything of the sort, therefore – A straw man is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent’s argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not advanced by that opponent. Capisce? Sorry for making you look stupid, once again.

          Hanzo in reply to Ragspierre. | July 18, 2016 at 11:49 am

          Also, rags, if you look at the upvotes vs downvotes, the overwhelmingly majority support me, so perhaps my rant was well received.

        heyjoojoo in reply to Ragspierre. | July 16, 2016 at 2:05 am

        Why do you choose to insult Trump supporters? What’s that got to do with anything? Make an argument. stick to the argument. But no need to try and denigrate Trump supporters.

Yes, T is giving it to P but don’t forget TP is used to wipe your nether regions too. Carry on.

Well, at least they are talking about his campaign.

You know, free publicity being good, and all that.

(BTW, there is no way they didn’t know this would be the reaction.)

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | July 15, 2016 at 12:59 pm

I hope that when rotten and barry get that logo tattooed their forehead they will share the pic with us.

I don’t think it is a great logo, but as for the comments, I think they need to get their minds out of the gutter. Or their intellect beyond 7th grade. Maybe they need to quit watching internet pornography. In any event, I would be embarrassed.


I see the Trump campaign has “rolled” out its new logo.

DieJustAsHappy | July 15, 2016 at 1:09 pm

There are around 6800 languages. Team Trump just might want to check that their TP symbol isn’t in any script. It’s possible that there could be unintended consequences.

Trump/Pence – 10 minutes of Photoshopping and they have the Entire Country talking about them.

Good Grief!

typical low class stuff from KK.

The neverending hunt for signs of perversion reminds me of the popularity of the Malleus Maleficarum, a surprise publishing hit of anno D. 1487.

Some people chase after witches. Some chase after Pokémon GO. And some search for trivialities, real or imaginary, to justify their whining about Trump.

Far be it from me to criticize another man’s hobbies … just so long as I’m not expected to take them seriously.

    Do a thought exercise. Substitute ‘Trump’ for ‘Clinton’ in your comment. Then submit your resume to ThinkProgress.

Nick Corasaniti ‏@NYTnickc 2h2 hours ago

Again this is not Trump campaign. This is the joint fundraising committee with the RNC. Logo is from JFC. So is email. Trump camp still nada

Wow…minds meet gutter. Time to step back from the inanity of nitpicking.

Common Sense | July 15, 2016 at 1:31 pm

Still the stupid # nevertrump people……..

Figures. If it was a democrat candidate with that kind of logo, it would be “brilliant” and “nuanced”. And personally, I don’t care about anyone’s logo. I’m still voting against Hillary in November.

Trumpians can’t even take a joke. As insufferable as Lena complaining about sushi in a college cafeteria. Y’all need to just learn to laugh more in between changing your tin foil hats and keyboard gloves. Remember. It comes though keyboards now.

    Hanzo in reply to Kondor77. | July 15, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    “It comes though keyboards now.”, as does juvenile attitude.

      Kondor77 in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 2:18 pm

      Haha, it’s a joke. Be an adult and learn to take one. We can’t all be paragons of virtue 24/7 like Mr. Trump.

        Hanzo in reply to Kondor77. | July 15, 2016 at 2:26 pm

        Yes, be an adult, at least act like one.

          Kondor77 in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 2:33 pm

          This guy! You’re the gift that keeps on giving. Do you do parties? Will you come dressed in full puritan garb?

        Hanzo in reply to Kondor77. | July 15, 2016 at 3:04 pm

        This guy! Do you do parties? Will you come in a body condom, as a total dick? Haha! Get it?

        Grow up.

          Kondor77 in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 3:27 pm

          Mom! He’s using dirty ‘juvenile’ words on the computer again!

          You should be the new keynote speaker at the convention. Really rile up the base against ‘The vile degeneracy of internet commenters who mock my favorite person in the world’s campaign logo – or “WAAAHH” for short.

        Hanzo in reply to Kondor77. | July 15, 2016 at 3:38 pm

        Is that all you’ve got, seriously? Strawman bs? You have nothing, save provocation. Zero sentience.
        Thanks for making my point and proving my point, perfesser.
        Gets kinda’ weird around here when the jr. high kids are out for summer break.

          Kondor77 in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 3:44 pm

          I’m just glad that when they programmed you they really didn’t forget to include a humor chip, old and outdated as it may be. I was getting worried you lived your entire life going around with your fist help up mumbling under your breath “those damn kids…”.

          Ragspierre in reply to Hanzo. | July 15, 2016 at 3:58 pm

          Wow. ANOTHER T-rump sucker who uses terms like “straw man” without the least comprehension of what that fallacy is.

          You should look it up before you embarrass the other T-rump suckers further.

        Hanzo in reply to Kondor77. | July 15, 2016 at 4:38 pm

        I see, you’re a typical Bernie Bro. I realized this when you commented above, to a different poster. You told him he should replace ‘Trump’ with ‘Clinton’ and go to Think Progress. Projection much? How you could come up with a retarded assertion such as that reveals your tortured, twisted view of “logic”, as well as your juvenile provocations. Like I said, thanks for making and proving my point. Press on, Bernie bro, like, it’s such a rush, amirite?

        As for your epithets and slurs …. pffftt. Go back to Think Progress, bruh.

    Common Sense in reply to Kondor77. | July 15, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    And the anti-trump idiots need to grow up!

    heyjoojoo in reply to Kondor77. | July 16, 2016 at 2:09 am

    Probably because many from the GOPe have actually been full on insulting and denigrating of those who support Trump. Telling them to lighten up is ridiculous. And does say a lot about you.

I thought Terrance & Phillip migrated south.

T is doing to P what he is doing to all you GOPe types.

Two negative stories about Trump in a row about the same topic?
1What’s the matter KK have you dirtied your diaper because the Black Knights failed in their last minute bid to usurp Trump last night?

Degenerates will always see degeneracy where it’s not.

Given the crap this country has gone through for the past 8 years, we need some TP.

Democrats to America: Vote for the lady who let our ambassador die and kept a secret email server because some people on the internet made snarky remarks about the other guy’s logo.

America: Yeah- we totally did that in 2012 because of a story about Mitt Romney’s dog on the top of his station wagon.

Good grief.

I’m referring to the ‘outrage’. The one who hears the dog whistle…, etc.

Now back to sort of important stuff.

The Friendly Grizzly | July 15, 2016 at 3:29 pm

It’s nothing to write home designwise, but it sure beats the “D” toilet seat logo for the Democratic party.

UK Transplant | July 15, 2016 at 3:30 pm

Is this Kindergarten? Gheez

I’m surprised at all the filthy minds here.

Don & Mike would have been better.
Alas… whaddya gonna do.
It is a detail.

RadModerate | July 16, 2016 at 7:41 am

Trump supporters should be angrier about the logo than the almost-too-obvious-to-state jokes about it. It is an insulting joke of a logo. Professional communications including logo design is meant to avoid unintentional messages. This is such a blatantly poor choice it was either done on purpose (to gain all this worthless chatter or as a joke on the candidates that made the final cut) or was aggressively supported by someone with too much power and too little judgment. Unfortunately, or perhaps appropriately, any of those three scenarios seems fitting for this campaign and is a great representation of what Trump appears to offer our country.

    UK Transplant in reply to RadModerate. | July 16, 2016 at 10:37 am

    As a Trump supporter, I am neither angry at the logo nor the jokes. I just see the logo as a temporary sign until they become entitled to use the Presidential seal.

Kemberlee — the post suggests to me that you may have a vile and dirty mind. Do you use the term tea bagger also ?

They should have just paid more to have the logo designed. They only paid trumppence for it, musta had it made in the UK.
