Donald Trump thinks Mayor Pete Buttigieg ("Buddha-jedge" or "boot-edge-edge") looks like Alfred E. Neuman of Mad Magazine's "What, Me Worry?" fame.

Buttigieg, in his blandly Midwestern way, cheerfully responded to Trump's attempted insult by replying, "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." I think we'll be seeing a lot more such verbal judo from Buttigieg. Personally, though, I think Trump should have gone for a more recent, more culturally relevant reference:
