President Trump found a spot-on nickname for liberal South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg — Alfred E. Neuman from Mad Magazine.
Trump introduced the label in an interview with Politico magazine.
The Daily Mail reported:
After Sleepy Joe, Crazy Bernie, Pocahontas, Little Marco, Lying Ted and Low energy Jeb, there’s a new nickname in President Trump’s arsenal, directed at South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
‘Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,’ Trump told Politico when asked if he sees Buttigieg as a serious threat to his 2020 re-election.
Alfred E. Neuman is the boyish cartoon character on the cover of the humor magazine Mad.
Later today Mayor Buttigieg did his best to hit back at Trump with an ageist joke.

Later today Mad Magazine got their own last laugh, posting, “Who’s Pete Buttigieg? Must be a generational thing.”
Who’s Pete Buttigieg? Must be a generational thing.

And then MAD Magazine changed their Twitter profile to bash Mayor Pete.
