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