The two also revealed their new official logo, which looks like it was designed at the last minute and only given a cursory review.

If Trump had really looked at it, wouldn’t he have noticed it’s a penis?
It's literally a T penetrating a P— Hunter Schwarz (@hunterschwarz) July 15, 2016
The Trump/Pence logo should be pixellated at the point where the T penetrates the P's hole pic.twitter.com/WxUedIB42A— Erin ☄️ Ryan (@morninggloria) July 15, 2016
oh my god to be on trump's ticket you have to let his initial graphically fuck your initial pic.twitter.com/wPNyh2coNM— Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) July 15, 2016
Maybe we’re all just children, obsessed with sex and looking for dick jokes wherever we can find them—but how hard would it have been not to overlap those two letters?
In the past few decades of successful presidential campaigns, no other pair of running mates has opted for implied typographical penetration. “Bush” never touched “Quayle,” nor did “Clinton” touch “Gore.” The second Bush? His name didn’t touch Dick—Cheney, that is—either.
Was the designer behind this logo just trying to troll Trump? You wouldn’t be alone in suspecting so.
Somewhere there's a designer who just pulled the most epic prank. And I want to shake his or her hand…— Mlle. Bébé Gottbach (@gottbach) July 15, 2016
On the other hand, maybe Trump sees the innuendo in the logo and loves it. Maybe he’s the kind of megalomaniac who, if he has to accept a running mate, must make it abundantly clear who is the top of the ticket. And who is the bottom.
