President Donald Trump has delivered a new nickname for rising Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg: Alfred E. Neuman.
In an interview with Politico published Friday, the president compared Buttigieg, who is the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, to the famous MAD magazine character — as if to say, “What, me worry?
Asked specifically about South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Trump was dismissive.
“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” he said, comparing Buttigieg to the iconic boyish Mad Magazine cartoon character.
A spokeswoman for the Buttigieg declined to comment. Buttigieg said on Wednesday, “You can’t get too worried about the name-calling and the games he plays.”
Trump also commented on the performance of former vice president Joe Biden, whom he called “Sleepy Creepy Joe” in a tweet earlier that day.
“I look at it like my race,” Trump told Politico, referring to Biden’s sudden dominance of the Democratic Party field.

Biden currently leads in each of the three most consequential early primary states: Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.
But the primary is only just beginning, and on Friday, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom said that Biden would have to work hard to win his state, suggesting that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) had home turf advantage in the delegate-rich Golden State contest, which has been moved up from June to “Super Tuesday” in early March.
