The Jewish Twittersphere Saw That Trump-Pence Logo — and Said ‘Oy Vey’

Donald Trump’s campaign rolled out a new logo to promote his announcement that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will be running for vice president on the GOP ticket. Now, the Trump campaign is maybe wishing it had given it a second look.

While Trump’s pick drew little attention given that news media had been reporting Pence’s name for nearly 24 hours, the campaign’s newly minted logo certainly did.

Many were concerned about what the logo might portend for Pence.

Others, like Jewish Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., felt the new Trump logo was a perfect fit.

According to several reports, Trump regretted picking Pence as his vice president and was up until midnight Thursday making calls asking his aides whether he could change his mind.

However, some argue that the campaign’s new logo should put those stories to bed.

Still, others said they didn’t see anything sexual implied by the logo. But they agreed it was certainly explosive.

Seemingly in response to mass mockery from all corners of the Internet, the Trump campaign issued a new logo on Saturday that resolved the graphically-derived issue of the old logo.

The campaign did not acknowledge any issues with the original Trump-Pence logo, instead saying the design was just one of many.

“We have a number of logos. The final one won’t be unveiled until the convention,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller told CNN.

As the Trump campaign moves on and prepares for the Republican National Convention this week, many can’t help but feel nostalgic for the Trump logo that brought people such joy in the midst of a week filled with tragedy.
