Over the weekend, Eric Trump tweeted a clip of a video that featured the late actor and comedian Robin Williams. He added the text “Robin Williams savages Joe Biden.”
Zelda Williams, the daughter of Robin Williams, turned to Twitter to condemn Trump for sharing the clip of her father.
“While we’re ‘reminiscing’ (to further your political agenda), you should look up what he said about your Dad,” Zelda wrote. “I did. Promise you, it’s much more ‘savage.'”
She then added, “Gentle reminder that the dead can’t vote, but the living can ♥️.”

Several fans replied to Zelda’s comment and shared a clip of the same video, which was made back in 2012, in which Robin Williams slammed Donald Trump.
Zelda’s response to Eric Trump comes just two weeks after she used her social media to honor 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 wrote. “Join me if you like, but regardless, know I am wishing you all at least one hearty, immature belly laugh on Dad today ♥️.”
Williams’ brother, Zak, recently shared with the TODAY Show that he was introducing his father’s legacy to his 1-year-old son, McLaurin Clement Williams.
“I have slowly started showing photos and pictures to my son, things from movies, and in animation that my dad was in,” he explained. “… We have photos and memories around our home and he’s drawn to them. And so, when he sees the Genie from ‘Aladdin’ or when he sees a photo of his grandfather, he’s drawn to it. And so, we talk about it … It’s a nice way to carry on my dad’s legacy related to our family history.”
