President Trump Has Another Hilarious Nickname For 2020 Dem Pete Buttigieg

President Donald Trump is back to giving out nicknames for his political rivals, and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is his next target.
Trump said that Buttigieg looked like “Howdy Doody,” the famous puppet character from a classic TV show in the 1950s.
Trump acknowledged that few people understood what he was talking about when he previously referred to Buttigieg as Alfred E. Newman, because they were not “aficionados” of Mad Magazine.
“Nobody knows because you’re all too young, nobody knows who Alfred E. Newman is, it’s Mad Magazine,” he said. “They all said, No. Howdy Doody.”
It appeared that Trump still favored his Mad Magazine reference to Buttigieg.
“See nobody knows who Alfred E. Newman is, only the real aficionados, they’re the ones, and they love it,” he said. But that’s only 15 percent of the crowd. Right? Am I right? Better than Howdy Doody…”
"Mayor Pete looks like Howdy Doody," Trump said.
Trump said that the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor failed his city, which was “going to hell.”
“I don’t get the whole thing,” he said. “But he’s not a bad debater, I will say, he’s probably the best up there.”
Trump blasting the 2020 Democratic candidate comes a week after Buttigieg's own brother-in-law, Paster Ryan Glezman, blasted him.
During an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glezman slammed Buttigieg for attacking Christians for supporting Trump.
Glezman said, “Yeah, in the height of intellectual dishonesty for Pete to make claims that there’s no compatibility with being a Christian and voting for Trump. Pete, in fact, is the one who is pushing agendas and rhetoric that is against, clearly against Scripture.”
On abortion, Glezman said, “I’m just in a state of lament when you hear that we have someone running for commander in chief who can’t make a moral decision on whether to keep a child after it’s already been born or to have it killed. What kind of moral suggestions is he going to be given if he can’t come to an understanding of that? It’s just, it’s alarming.”
He added, “Just everything that Pete is pushing is, it’s anti-God. I’m just going to be honest with you. Nothing lines up with Scripture for him to make cases like to say that you cannot be a Christian and vote for Trump. He’s the one that is openly contradicting God’s word over and over.”
Buttigieg has invoked God or referenced the Bible a few times when going after President Trump and Republicans.
During an interview last year on NBC’s “Today,” Buttigieg said he “can’t imagine” that God would be in the political party that elected Trump.
MSNBC host Craig Melvin said, “You also spend a fair amount of time talking about your faith.”
Buttigieg said, “Yes.”
Melvin asked, “Why?”
Buttigieg said, “It’s important to me.”
He added, “I think it’s also important that we stop seeing religion used as a kind of cudgel as if God belonged to a political party. If he did, I can’t imagine it would be the one that sent the current president into the White House.”
While speaking to CNN's Kirsten Powers before that, Buttigieg called Vice President Mike Pence the “cheerleader for the porn-star presidency” and strongly
Buttigieg is still running in the top 3 in the Democratic primaries.
