Face it, the GOP is just better at marketing

Late Sunday night, the GOP unveiled their new logo and judging by the reaction from their base, it’s obvious that the GOP has another winner on their hands.

Designed with input from both Donald J. Trump and Donald Trump Jr. the new logo features a simple red, black, and white color palette. Using the traditional elephant logo to represent the Republican Party, both Donald’s stated that they believed it was time for the brand to be “a show of force, trampling over the Democrats.”

Inspired by the simple design style of the late 1930’s and early 1940’s, and Trump’s own German heritage, the Trump campaign has said that the GOP’s brand should reflect the party’s efforts to Make American Great Again. Donald Trump also indicated that the decision to make the elephants black was a conscious decision to court black voters saying “I’ve been the best President ever for the blacks which is why I made these elephants black, even though I normally wouldn’t.” Turning to Vice President, the President seemed to then make an off-hand remark intended to be a joke: “I still wouldn’t rent to them.”

Critics were quick to point out that the logo should probably feature red, white, and blue. When asked about this, Trump who was standing by a chopper on the White House lawn had this to say:

“Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Drumpf at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world — it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican they try — oh, do they do a number — that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune — you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged — but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me — it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are — nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? — but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners — now it used to be three, now it’s four — but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years — but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.”

Update: we’ve just learned that the GOP is being charged with plagiarizing this design. No word yet on who the original design was copied from. We’ll release more details as they become available.
