Twitter users pounced on the blue T-for-Trump penetrating a blue P-for-Pence against the red and white bars of an American flag.
The ticket also uses Trump's name, written in capital letters, on top of Pence's name in smaller type. The social media platform exploded with mockery.

Even former congressman John Dingell couldn't keep silent about the sexually suggestive image.
One user humorously proposed that the logo should be given an "NC-17" rating and have the interlocking letters blurred to save unprepared innocent eyes.
"I am pleased to announce that I have chosen Governor Mike Pence as my Vice Presidential running mate. Together we will Make America Great Again!" Trump wrote in an RNC fundraising committee email.
Many Twitter users suggested that, in this context, the phrase "running mate" points to a sexual allusion and wondered whether this form of 'sacrifice' on the part of Pence is required to ‘Make America Great Again.'
We all knew that any politician who became Trump's running mate would be screwed for life, but this is a bit blunt.pic.twitter.com/xg0LYB8uuf— (((Yair Rosenberg))) (@Yair_Rosenberg) July 15, 2016

Recently the real-estate-speculator-turned-politician was accused of anti-Semitism for tweeting an image featuring Hillary Clinton alongside a six-pointed star against a pile of cash. Trump's brand designers, alongside the candidate, have been regularly ridiculed.
