The Trump campaign seems to have gotten the thrust of the merciless Internet giggling that greeted the unveiling of its new logo on Friday.
The logo, rolled out shortly after presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump announced Indiana governor Mike Pence as his running mate, is comprised of Trump’s “T” ramming into Pence’s “P,” a softcore messaging malfunction that sent Internet commentators straight to stroking their keyboards.

But how are we going to explain the Trump-Pence logo to our kids? Won't someone please think of the children?— Celeste Ng (@pronounced_ing) July 15, 2016

Similarities between the Trump/Pence logo and the Aryan Nations logo, were not overlooked either.

It now appears that a new logo has been conceived. An updated logo featuring Trump’s name on top of (but not inside of) Pence’s appeared on Trump’s website on Saturday, and in a fundraising email from Pence.
