Robin Williams's daughter hits back at Eric Trump for sharing video of her late father

Robin Williams’s daughter Zelda has condemned Eric Trump for digging out one of her father’s old comedy clips, in which he mocks Joe Biden.

In the 2009 clip, Williams, who died in 2014, pokes fun at the then-vice president.

‘We still have great comedy out there,’ said Williams. 

‘There’s always rambling Joe Biden – what the f***?

‘Joe says s*** that even people with Tourette’s go: ‘No. What is going on?’

Williams said that Biden was ‘like your uncle who is on a new drug but hasn’t got the dosage right’.

He then imitated Biden, saying: ‘”I’m proud to work with Barack America” – he’s not a superhero, you idiot!

‘”When FDR was on television…” – there was no TV then, sit down, Joe.’

Trump, 36, retweeted the clip on Thursday with the headline: ‘Robin Williams Just Savages Joe Biden.’

On Saturday Williams, 31, voiced her displeasure at Trump’s use of her father’s work.  

‘While we’re “reminiscing” (to further your political agenda), you should look up what he said about your Dad,’ she tweeted. 

‘I did. Promise you, it’s much more “savage”. 

‘Gentle reminder that the dead can’t vote, but the living can.’

Williams’s comment was ‘liked’ 79,000 times.

On social media many pointed to a 2012 clip in which Williams described visiting Atlantic City in New Jersey, where Donald Trump owned casinos.

Williams described the place as being ‘like the Wizard of Oz on acid: junkies and pimps and pizza – oh my!’

He continued: ‘Donald Trump is the Wizard of Oz. He plays monopoly with real f****** buildings – this is a scary man.

‘And he owns all these beauty pageants. Miss America, Miss Universe.

‘Isn’t it like Michael Vick owning a series of pet stores? It’s a f****** catch and release program for him.

‘This is man who says: “My Daughter is hot.” Even people in Arkansas said that’s f****** wrong.

‘And that f****** hair? I believe the hair is The Donald. The body is a maintenance system for the hair.’ 

Williams has been outspoken about protecting the legacy of her father, who died by suicide at the age of 63 in August 2014.

He was suffering from Lewy Body Dementia, a type of brain disease that affected his thinking, memory and movement control. It is the second-most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease.

Two weeks ago she marked what would have been her father’s 69th birthday.  

‘Today would’ve been Dad’s 69th birthday, so to honor him (& that glorious number), I will be donating $69.69 to as many local homeless shelters as I can,’ she tweeted. 

‘Join me if you like, but regardless, know I am wishing you all at least one hearty, immature belly laugh on Dad today.’
