A video from a 2009 Robin Williams special, showing the late comedian making fun of then-Vice President Joe Biden, has been circulating online in recent days. Eric Trump shared the video on Twitter – and Williams’ daughter, Zelda Williams, responded by saying that her father also made fun of President Trump.
The now viral clip is from Williams’ special, “Weapons of Self Destruction.” In it, the late comedian says, “We still have good comedy out there. There’s always Joe Biden.” He continues to mock Biden and reject his words.
On Thursday, President Trump̵
Williams’ 31-year-old daughter retweeted the video, adding to her response: “While we ‘remind'” (to advance your political agenda), you should look up what he said about your father. I did. I promise you, it is much more “wild.” “Williams, an actress, director and producer, added:” Mild reminder that the dead can not vote, but the living can. “
The years before Robin Williams, the comedy legend had made some pointed jokes at Trump’s expense. In a 2012 clip before Trump took office, Williams called him “a scary man.”
“He owns all these beauty buddies … isn’t it as much as Michael Vick who owns a series of pet stores? It’s a catch-and-release program for him,” Williams said during the show. “This is a man who said, ‘My daughter is hot. “Even people in Arkansas went, ‘It’s wrong. That’s just the way it is. “
Zelda Williams’ post about her father comes just weeks after she honored him for what would have been his 69th birthday.
“Today would have been Dad’s 69th birthday, so to honor him (& the glorious number) I will donate $ 69.69 to as many local homeless shelters as I can,” she tweeted. “Join me if you want, but no matter, know that I wish you all at least a hearty, immature belly laughing at Dad today.”
Williams also sent a message to fans ahead of the anniversary of her father’s death on August 11. In a tweet on Monday, Williams said while “constantly touched by all your boundless continued love for him, some days it can feel a bit like being considered a roadside memorial – a place, not a person – where people drive by and leave their emotions and then go their days comforted their love for him was witnessed. “
She told supporters, “if you are in crisis and are searching this site hoping to be closer to him in some way, use one of the following resources if you think you need them.” She then attached contact information for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, The Veterans Crisis Line, Crisis Text Line and the Trevor Project.
