The Trump campaign couldn't get something as easy as a logo right.
After launching the Trump/Pence design, which invited oceans of ridicule over it, the campaign scrubbed it, and they're probably working on another disaster even as I write this.
What a mess.
Is there no coordination or even thoughtful review of what comes out of the Trump campaign? Didn't someone with political savvy see what a train wreck of a logo it was before they sent it out for the country to see and mock?
From Raw Story:
"After a day of ridicule for a poorly designed Trump/Pence campaign logo that launched a thousand memes, the Trump campaign disappeared 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."
The reviews are in on Trump's announcement of Pence as his Veep, and they're awful.
Jason Easley of PoliticusUSA:
The reviews are in on Donald Trump’s announcement of Mike Pence as his VP, and they vary from calling Trump’s performance insane to pointing out that the Republican nominee demonstrated why he is not fit to be president.
Ezra Klein at Vox pulled no punches:
"Donald Trump’s introduction of Mike Pence was shocking. Forget the political mainstream. What happened today sat outside the mainstream for normal human behavior….What started as farce continued as farce. Trump emerged without Pence. He spoke, alone, at a podium adorned with Trump’s name, but not Pence’s. And then Trump proceeded to talk about himself for 28 minutes. There is no other way to say this than to say it: it was the single most bizarre, impulsive, narcissistic performance I have ever seen from a major politician."
Katy Tur of MSNBC:
"...Trump spent a good portion of the time talking about, frankly, himself, relitigating the primaries, talking about all the deals he’s made…..also want to say that Donald Trump spent 29 minutes before he — talking about himself mostly — before he went to Governor Pence. If you’re going to compare this to past VP introductions, Mitt Romney spent 8 minutes and 30 seconds before getting to Paul Ryan."
