The orange one meets orange sunshine

Trump is now evidently trying to reframe himself as the peace candidate. As in the Sunset Strip, patchouli oil and madras bedspreads variety. This is from Facebook.

The new retro look, complete with hippie balloon, Wes Wilson wannabee lettering (and a modified Cooper font on the second), along with a quasi Peter Max psychedelic background motif.

Graphically appealing in a Josie and the Pussycats kind of way but I personally am not buying it.

Guaranteed bad trip.

This post really piqued my interest, so I did a little research. This work is also represented in the Osmonds, Jackson 5, and yes, even The Brady Kids cartoons. Trump's political pivot makes me want to bag the hassle of voting, stay home, and eat a bowl of Fruit Loops in my PJ's come election day. Oddly, this could be a very savvy attempt at voter suppression.
