#LogoFail: Trump/Pence campaign scrubs “screw you” branding after one day of massive ridicule

Published

on

After a day of ridicule for a poorly designed Trump/Pence campaign logo that launched a thousand memes, the Trump campaign deleted the design from their official website overnight.

Following the Twitter announcement of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as businessman Donald Trump’s choice of a running mate should he still be given the GOP presidential nomination, the logo was unveiled online and immediately became the object of derision.

With some commenters noting the T&P styling and comparing it to dangling toilet paper coming off a roll, others pointed out the penetration of the Trump ‘T’ into the Pence ‘P’ had a disturbing sexual connotation that became the subject of much mirth.

Full Frontal host Samantha Bee’s crack staff almost immediately posted an animated GIF (see below), under the heading: “Breaking the Mattress of America.”

The revamped Trump website no longer features the logo — or even a picture of Pence — opting for a large photo of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump with his original campaign slogan “Make America great again.”

The awkwardly designed Trump/Pence logo is also nowhere to be found on the Republican National Committee’s website.

Published

on

Hong Kong witnessed another huge anti-government march on Sunday with seemingly no end in sight to the turmoil engulfing the finance hub, sparked by years of rising anger over Beijing's rule.

The city has been plunged into its worst crisis in recent history by weeks of marches and sporadic violent confrontations between police and pockets of hardcore protesters.

The initial protests were lit by a now-suspended bill that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.

But they have since evolved into a wider movement calling for democratic reforms, universal suffrage and a halt to sliding freedoms in the semi-autonomous territory.

Published

on

Several of the headlines emerging from the fallout of President Donald Trump’s recent racist behavior claim that fascism is coming to America. It’s perplexing to read them, because they seem to suggest that there is something new to the blatant and unapologetic racism and xenophobia of the Trump camp.  But there really is nothing new here.  No surprises whatsoever.  Just Trump and his team and his supporters doing exactly what they have been doing since before he announced his candidacy in June 2015.
