After a day of remembrance, New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman used a photo taken at the funeral as an opportunity to criticize President Trump. Haberman responded to a tweet showing a photo of members of the Bush family, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, and Melania Trump.

Haberman wrote:

President Trump did not attend the funeral, saying he did not want all his security to be a distraction. However, he sent a tweet showing a display of remembrance for Barbara Bush in the White House Saturday. (RELATED: President Trump Shows Remembrance Display For Barbara Bush In The White House)
