2020 Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said “I’ll be honest, I had to Google that, I guess it’s a generational thing” after President Trump referred to him as Alfred E. Neuman. The gap-toothed fictional Alfred E. Neuman graced the cover of MAD magazine starting in the 1950s, and Buttigieg was born in 1982. 

“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States.”

President Donald Trump

“I didn’t get the reference. It’s kind of funny I guess, but he’s also the president of the United States and I’m surprised he’s not spending more time trying to salvage this deal with China.”
