Mad Magazine vs Mayor Butt-edge-edge

My post yesterday ” What, Us Worry ? “, had fun with some of the 2020 democratic candidates for POTUS , and the great nicknames President Trump comes up with for them.

His latest was for Pete Buttigieg, the youthful, queer mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Trump compared him to Mad Magazine’s icon Alfred E. Neuman , stating :

“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” 

Attempting to be nonplussed, Buttigieg tried to shrug it off :

Mad Magazine, not to be slighted by a light-in-the-loafers upstart who is nearly 1/2 the age of their decades old publication, shot back with this zinger :

Who’s Pete Buttigieg? Must be a generational thing.— MAD Magazine (@MADmagazine) May 11, 2019

What, Me Worry ?

Hey, when you have Alfred E Neuman in your corner, maybe it’s not such a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World afterall !

    Moved this from another Thread I put it on earlier…

    Fits better here, eh?

    There is a lot of bantering amongst The Lefties about a potential “Dream Team” to wrest away The White House from Trump in the 2020 Election…I had an epiphany of sorts earlier whilst looking at a photo of Bernie waving his arms around, and pert near foaming at the mouth. He is a dead ringer for “Doc Brown”, played by Christopher Lloyd in Back To The Future. I also had a vision of sorts—A Dream Ticket of “B&B”, Bernie and Buttplug!

    Got a nice ring to it, “B&B”, no? Them two on the ticket could be made into a movie: “Lame and Lamer”, and that title only because “Dumb and Dumber” is taken…

    I have a hat pin of Alfred that MAD gave away years ago for subscriptions…I wear it proudly on my railroad cap..

      Well ya better be careful wearing that pin now Amboy.
      Ya might get attacked by friends of Jussie Smollett looking for revenge !

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I do not think Alfred E. Newman was married to a man.

    bwahaha too funny…for once both sides are using humor instead of attacking

    Dear Nox and Friends, you’d think, that Pete would change the spelling of the first four letters of his last name.
