Robin Williams' daughter blasts Eric Trump for using a video of her father to mock Joe Biden


Eric Trump has been scolded on social media by Zelda Williams, the daughter of the late, great comedian and actor Robin Williams, for using a video of her father to try and mock Joe Biden.

On 6 August, Eric shared a 36-second video on his Twitter account from a 2009 stand-up routine from Williams where he made fun of the former vice president and his tendency to ramble when talking.

In the short clip Williams, who died in 2014, says:

We still have great comedy out there, there's always rambling Joe Biden, what the f**k. 

Joe says s**t that even people with Tourette's go, 'No. What is going on?'

Joe is like your uncle that has a new drug and hasn't got the dosage right.

'I'm proud to work with Barack America' He's not a superhero you idiot. 

'When FDR was on television' There was no television back then Joe, come here, sit down.

A caption to the video that Trump shared simply read 'Robin Williams just savages Joe Biden' and was just another attempt by the Trump family to ridicule to president's opponent come November's election.

When Trump posted the video he probably never thought that he would receive a reply from Williams' 31-year-old daughter Zelda who took exception to him using a video of her father and encouraged him to look up what the star had said about the current president.

Just in case you are wondering what Williams said about Trump, here is a video from a 2012 stand-up set where he compares him to The Wizard of Oz, criticises his indecent comments about Ivanka Trump and mocks his hair, which is arguably a lot funnier than what he said about Biden.

New polls have predicted that Biden will win this year's election with Trump doing everything he can to try and get the election delayed over his unfounded theories that mail-in votes could be subjected to fraud, rendering the result inaccurate.

More people than usual are likely to vote by mail in this year's election due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
