WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Robin Williams’ daughter hit back at Eric Trump after he shared a video of her late father mocking Joe Biden.
- Zelda Williams accused President Trump’s son of using the video to “further [their] political agenda.”
- Zelda pointed out that her dad was also critical of President Trump who the late comedian called ” a scary man” who thinks his daughter is “hot.”
Robin Williams’ daughter called out Eric Trump on Monday after he shared a video of her late dad poking fun at Joe Biden. Robin died by suicide in 2014 at age 63.
The shared video was one of Robin’s stand-up routines, where he 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 who’s on a new drug and hasn’t got the dosage right.”
After Eric shared the video on Twitter, Zelda Williams immediately pointed out that her dad was also critical of President Trump.
“While we’re ‘reminiscing’ (to further your political agenda), you should look up what he said about your Dad. I did. Promise you, it’s much more ‘savage,'” Zelda wrote. “Gentle reminder that the dead can’t vote, but the living can.”
In a 2012 video, Robin called President Donald Trump “a scary man.”
“He owns all these beauty pageants… isn’t that bit like Michael Vick owning a series of pet stores? It’s a f**king catch-and-release program for him,” Robin said. “This is a man who said, ‘My daughter is hot.’ Even people in Arkansas went, ‘That’s f**king wrong. That’s just way out of place.'”In a followup tweet, Zelda said she was “out before my comments get messy again.”
“Stay safe, stay well,” she added to her followers.
Zelda’s post came just weeks after she honored her father on what would’ve been his 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 wrote on Twitter at the time. “Join me if you like, but regardless, know I am wishing you all at least one hearty, immature belly laugh on Dad today.”
