America’s Troll-in-Chief, President Donald Trump, King of the Nicknames, has a new one for presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg: Alfred E. Newman, the iconic mascot and face of Mad Magazine and Mad TV, whose classic motto was: “What, me worry?”
See the comparison below!
Mad Magazine also found it hilarious and jumped on the bandwagon of mocking South Bend Mayor Pete.
During an interview with Politico, Trump was asked what he thought of Buttigieg, and jokingly said, “Alfred E. Newman cannot become president of the United States.”
When Buttigieg heard about it, he said, “I’ll be honest. I had to Google that. I guess it’s just a generational thing. I didn’t get the reference. It’s kind of funny, I guess.”
That’s when Mad Magazine jumped into the fray with some shade of their own, tweeting, “Who’s Pete Buttigieg? Must be a generational thing.”
OK, Trump referring to Mayor Pete as “Alfred E. Neuman” is genuinely hilarious pic.twitter.com/IlEdD7OizT
