Does Chasten Shop at Kohl’s?

Pete Buttigieg does not take criticism well.

He asks of his critic with the loudest megaphone, “You think Tucker Carlson knows the difference between a T.J. Maxx and a Kohl’s?”

Do you think Pete Buttigieg does?

“You get the max for the minimum at T.J. Maxx,” went an old jingle. The tagline on the Kohl’s website says, “Get great prices every day.” In other words, the stores shoot for the same demographic (hint: not the Saks Fifth Avenue demographic).

One might reasonably confuse the two as one taking the Pepsi Challenge might fail to correctly identify Coca-Cola or its chief rival from taste alone.

If you wanted to demonstrate one’s pseudo-populism, why not ask, “You think Tucker Carlson knows the difference between Family Dollar and T.J. Maxx?”

Or just say the guy’s dad once ran the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the guy himself used to wear a bowtie. That seems like a more intelligent way to deflect from legitimate questions about job performance.
