As Twitchy told you, New York Times’ White House correspondent Katie Rogers seemed disappointed that the Bush family didn’t use George H.W. Bush’s funeral to take shots at Donald Trump. She needn’t have worried; “The Daily Show” was plenty happy to pick up the slack:

Should they have waited until after the funeral was over to smack Trump around? A lot of tweeters — including some fans — think so:

It’s hard to believe you guys are this tone deaf.

Seriously, point scoring at a funeral…

Really? Making jokes of a funeral? Really? Low as they go.

Wow, lowered yourself to his level. Haters got to hate.

This is in poor taste at a funeral.

this is just so low class – on a day celebrating the life of former Pres Bush – maybe if you listen to the eulogies, you'd get a sense of his class and dignity and it will rub off on you. How ignorant can one get.

We're burying a president. This could have waited. It's not always comedy or Trump or you.

Pretty low that even if you hate Trump

Take an hour off to honor HW Bush? No. Use the death of a president to mock the current president. Yes.

Politics can be awful, but maybe focus on the good — like the fact that in spite of all of this, these same people gathered together with the same purpose to honor someone and give comfort to the grieving family. You don’t always have to keep score.

Definitely agree that this should have waited. Bad timing, good joke.

Trevor, I love you but this ism't cool. I just chastised a Republican for doing something similar regarding the Democrats sitting there.
I got to admit it's funny, but it could have waited a day or two…at the very least tonight.

Can we respect this day of remembrance and save these tweets for tomorrow? We can all agree Trump is an a-hole, but today is about #rembering41 .

Probably could have waited a few days. Not really cool.

Trevor I'm a big fan but it could have waited…..Just watched George W. Bush deliver a moving tribute that made me cry and then this hits…Just saying…could have waited….

You come off worse here, that was a funeral, glove dig up tweets, some from 5 years ago, just to stick it to trump? It's a funeral, you have no class
