Donald Trump unveiled his vice presidential pick on Friday. He had claimed that he would postpone the announcement due to the tragedy that took place in France on Thursday night, but for whatever reason, he skipped the normal fanfare and tweeted out the announcement of Indiana governor Mike Pence as his running mate just before 11 am.
Along with the name of his VP, he also revealed a new campaign logo to the world.
Twitter was quick to respond to his new logo with all the brutal mockery we have come to expect from the social media platform. Never one to disappoint, the result was absolutely hilarious.
Many people picked up on the whole “TP” and toilet paper thing. Of course, you can’t think about “TP” without thinking about Beavis and the Great Cornholio.

Question from #TrumpPence new logo: is the TP campaign single-ply, double-ply, triple-ply extra-padded with racism?

Others on Twitter noticed the way the “T” and the “P” intersected in the new logo.

Some users noticed the similarity of Trump’s new logo to an old logo used by fellow liberal blog Think Progress.

We aren’t sure who came up with the design for this masterpiece, but Trump might want to go with somebody else when it comes time to design his next logo. Regardless, the resulting comments on Twitter were definitely the best part of Trump’s VP announcement.
