Epithet Or Epitaph: Pete Buttigieg Edition

The man who vowed to “Make America Great Again” has picked out an epithet for the openly homosexual South Bend mayor who is running for president in 2020.

Pete Buttigieg said the following at a recent campaign rally:
During a rally in Panama City, Florida on Wednesday the President scoffed at the notion that Buttigieg could hold his own in high-stakes international negotiations saying, "We have a young man, Buttigieg. Boot-edge-edge. They say ‘edge-edge,’” over-enunciating the mayor’s name, “He's got a great chance, doesn’t he? He’ll be great representing us against President Xi of China. That’ll be great. I want to be in that room. I wanna watch that one."
The President believes if you can encapsulate someone in a phrase or a nickname, you can own them,” a person who knows the President said in a recent interview. “Low Energy Jeb, Little Marco, that kind of thing really diminishes people and puts you in control of them and that’s what Trump is a genius for doing.”

Our betters on the Left became upset after learning the President told Politico, “Alfred E. Neuman cannot become President of the United States.” 
What kind of monster hasn’t heard of Mad Magazine?  Are you telling me Mayor Pete somehow missed one of the major cultural landmarks of the last 50 years?

Alfred E. Neuman first appeared on the magazine’s cover in 1954. The magazine, founded by editor Harvey Kurtzman and publisher William Gaines, debuted as a comic book in 1952, then switched to magazine format three years later. Mad is still published on a bimonthly basis.

No wonder editorial cartoonist Gary Varvel did a caricature of the idiot kid on April 21, 2019.
