Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg tried to be funny after he was given a new nickname by President Donald Trump, but Mad magazine stepped in and stole the spotlight.

On Friday, Trump tested out a new nickname for Buttigieg: “Alfred E. Neuman.”

“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” Trump told Politico, referring to the iconic Mad magazine mascot.

Trump’s new nickname for Buttigieg might be an attack on his age — the South Bend, Indiana mayor is only 37 years old.

“We have a young man, Buttigieg,” Trump said. “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.”

Buttigieg attempted to fire back at Trump on Friday by poking fun at the nickname and attacking Trump’s age. “I’ll be honest. I had to Google that,” he said, referring to Alfred E. Neuman.

“I guess it’s just a generational thing. I didn’t get the reference,” Buttigieg added.

Buttigieg clearly didn’t learn from those plagued by a Trump-given nickname in the past — it never works out well when politicians try to fire back at Trump.

While Trump’s reference to Alfred E. Neuman was a bit dated, Buttigieg’s response only gave the president’s nickname even more coverage — which means the nickname will probably stick to Buttigieg until his campaign withers away.

And Trump didn’t even have to fire back at the Indiana mayor because Mad magazine beat him to it.

“Who’s Pete Buttigieg? Must be a generational thing,” the magazine tweeted.

That’s a really good burn by Mad, and it probably stings for the 2020 hopeful Democrat, who is significantly behind former Vice President Joe Biden, and Democratic Sens. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris in a recent poll.

Buttigieg’s low score in the polls isn’t surprising because there’s nothing special about him — he’s a stereotypical wacky leftist. His policy proposals include ridiculous ideas like abolishing the electoral college and packing the Supreme Court with new seats.

“Who’s Pete Buttigieg?” is the perfect summary of Buttigieg’s failing presidential campaign.

Now he’s probably regretting his response to Trump’s nickname — maybe he should leave the jokes to professionals.

    He is a “Mee Too” politician who is just trying to sound good to the left wingers. Say the right stuff, maybe they will like him. But Trump is right, let him sit in a seat across the likes of Putin and Xi of China and they will eat him for breakfast!

    Best one yet!
    Aw, had to look it up, then all offended…sad little man. Or is he the ‘wife’?
    It’s a pathetic parade of pinheads, pedo’s, pervs, pretenders and phonies in the massive crowd of ‘who the hell is this one?’ demoncraps on the run for president. Socialists, commies, crooks, cronies, climate change believers, gun grabbers, azz grabbers, muslims, gays….we got one for every flavor moonbat a leftist could possibly go for.
    It’s going to be an entertaining run to 2020, but as President Trump finishes his first term, these pathetic pretenders will be thinned down to a miserable misfit pair to try against the most accomplished president in the history of the USA. That’s when the real stuff is unleashed.
