Late night TV show hosts had endless joke material last night following Trump’s awkward appearance at George H. W. Bush’s funeral.
Show hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, and Dulcé Sloan of the Daily Show had a field day cracking jokes at how the president noticeably failed to receive a warm welcome when he walked into the packed Washington National Cathedral to pay his respects on Wednesday.
As Trump and Melania walked over to the presidential row at the ceremony, Hillary Clinton didn’t even bat an eye in their direction. The Obamas hesitantly shook their hands.
‘Hillary is just starring straight ahead like she’s in an elevator with a weirdo,’ Kimmel joked on his show.
‘It was like all of America’s divorced parents together in the same room for the first time,’ he added.
Pass the pour! Late night TV show hosts cracked endless jokes at Trump on Wednesday after his awkward appearance at George H. W. Bush’s funeral where he sat next to the Obamas, Clintons, and the Carters. Dulcé Sloan of the Daily Show said: ‘Good Lord I need a drink just looking at that photo’
Jimmy Kimmel pointed fingers to Hillary Clinton who refused to acknowledge Trump at the funeral saying: ‘Hillary is just starring straight ahead like she’s in an elevator with a weirdo’
‘It was a time of reflection, remembrance and uncomfortable seating arrangements…Woo! Good Lord, I need a drink just looking at that photo,’ Dulcé Sloan of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah said.
Noah, who’s resting his vocal chords, silently added to the mix of jokes with his hilarious facial reactions.
The president has famously insulted all of the people sitting on his bench, save for Jimmy Carter’s wife Rosalynn, according to the Washington Post.
Although the Obama’s shook Trump’s hand, Kimmel urged viewers to look twice at former first lady Michelle’s hesitance.
Colbert joked: ‘Donald Trump is the only person in the world who can bring down a funeral’

After Trump and Melania joined the presidential row, the tension became palpable
‘Watch the look from Michelle Obama, because it is so frosty she may have reversed global warming right there,’ he said.
Stephen Colbert played a clip on his show, showing the before and after of the Trumps arrival.
Before Trump walked in the former presidents and first ladies were chatting and smiling, but then things get palpably and painfully tense when the Commander in Chief walks in.
‘It was quite a moving sight to see the presidents and first ladies in the front row waiting to honor President Bush chatting comfortably with one another until Trump showed up…then it became silent staring time,’ Colbert said.

Trump also sparked outrage after he failed to recite the Apostles Creed, despite having the words printed out in front of him, with the rest of the attendees
‘Donald Trump is the only person in the world who can bring down a funeral,’ he added.
The hosts also hilariously pointed out how the entire cathedral recited the Apostles’ Creed led by the pastor – but not Trump and Melania.
Putting on his impressive Trump voice, Colbert said: ‘Er I’m sorry I zoned out there for a minute I was thinking about all the evangelicals who voted for me….What are we doing? The Macarena? I’m in’
The comedians also ripped into the Bush family’s promise to Trump, made this past summer, that he’d be welcome at the funeral that would steer clear of disagreements and focus instead of celebrating George H.W.’s life.
Colbert said the Bushes also assured Trump ‘the choir would drown out the sound of other ex-presidents rolling in their graves’.
