The media’s sloppy, globby love affair with Pett Buttigieg is enough to make some people want to vomit…
With the 2020 campaign already underway, President Trump is rolling out his hilarious nicknames for Democrats just as he did for his GOP foes the last time around.
The ability to come up with exactly the right name was one of Trump’s most potent weapons as ‘Lil Marco, low energy Jeb and lyin Ted can attest to and the POTUS has recently directed his fire at the media’s love object, Pete Buttigieg.
The mayor of smallish college town South Bend, Indiana has been catapulted into the upper tier of candidates primarily because he is openly gay and the identity-obsessed press sees him as one of their own.
Trump has largely stayed silent on “Mayor Pete” until this week when at a MAGA rally in the Florida Panhandle, he mocked the idea that the inexperienced lightweight “Boot-edge-edge” would be up to the task in taking on top U.S. global adversary China and suggested that the leaders would eat the youngster alive.
Predictably, the media moved quickly to protect Buttigieg who now has to deal with being on Trump’s radar.

Then on Friday, the leader of the free world dunked on Mayor Pete who now his very own nickname: MAD Magazine character Alfred E. Neuman. The moniker was bestowed on the upstart Dem during a Trump interview with Politico.
Trump mocked Pete Buttigieg by comparing him to the MAD Magazine mascot: "Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States."

President Donald Trump dismissed Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Friday in a single sentence.
“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” the president told POLITICO in a 15-minute telephone interview, when asked what he thought of the South Bend, Ind., mayor. Neuman’s freckled, gap-toothed face and oversized ears have for decades graced the cover of the humor magazine Mad.
Buttigieg, the first openly gay major presidential candidate, has rocketed up the ranks of Democrats hoping to defeat Trump in 2020 and has basked in glowing press coverage and magazine cover stories in recent weeks.
Asked about Trump’s put-down by POLITICO in San Francisco on Friday, the 37-year-old Buttigieg professed ignorance about the comic book character, whose fame peaked more than 20 years ago, while making a veiled reference to the 72-year-old Trump’s seniority.
“I’ll be honest. I had to Google that,” he said. “I guess it’s just a generational thing.
Mayor Pete was quick on the draw with his pithy response but his quip about “a generational thing” is ageism as well as yet another perfect example of how the politically correct, social justice avengers on the left are the biggest hypocrites in America today.
Buttigieg’s disdain for his elders could also open up yet another fissure with Democrats now that the entire establishment has aligned behind former Vice President Joe Biden who is no spring chicken at the spry age of 76 is four years older than Trump although a year younger then runner up Bernie Sanders.
Unfortunately for Mayor Pete, this one is going to stick to him like glue and now that Trump sees how it has already rubbed him the wrong way, he will keep sticking in the needle that may even puncture the media’s Buttigieg bubble.
