Zelda Williams Gives 'Savage' Clapback To Eric Trump After Robin Williams Tweet

Zelda Williams is not having any of the political rhetoric surrounding her comedy legend father, Robin Williams.

In fact, Zelda had a pretty "savage" clapback for Donald Trump's son Eric who used an old clip of Robin talking about Joe Biden in an effort to promote his father's 2020 presidential campaign race.

Naturally, it was iconic AF.

Zelda Williams is not known for being particularly savage on social media.

The 31-year-old is known for posting sweet tributes to her late father and embracing his memory and legacy.

Randomly enough, that loving daughter role now consists of clapping back at Eric Trump.

This past weekend, Eric posted an old clip of Robin Williams making fun of Joe Biden's speech.

The 2009 clip featured the text "Robin Williams Just Savages Joe Biden."

"We still have great comedy out there, there's always rambling Joe Biden, what the [expletive]," Robin jokes in the clip.

"Joe says [expletive] that even people with Tourette's go, 'No. What is going on?'"

Naturally, many people weren't impressed with the use of a beloved comedian to push a political agenda, especially since the clip is 11 years old.

Fans weren't convinced Robin would be impressed with President Trump's behavior.

"Robin Williams was a long time Democratic Party supporter," tweeted one fan.

"Using the words of the dead who can't correct you. Shameful."

Amongst those unimpressed with Eric's tweet was Robin's 31-year-old daughter, Zelda.

Needless to say, the activist and artist wasn't going to let Eric spin the narrative of her father being a Trump supporter.

Tweeting in response to Eric, Zelda wrote, "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.'"


She concluded: "Gentle reminder that the dead can’t vote, but the living can."

In case you're wondering exactly what Robin said about Donald Trump, I have done my journalistic duties and found that clip for you.

To be fair, it wasn't hard to track down the clip because EVERYONE was replying to Eric's tweet with it, lol.

In the clip, recorded in 2012, Robin called Trump "the Wizard of Oz" and "a scary man" before going on to discuss his business dealings.

The comedian compared Trump owning beauty pageants to Michael Vick owning pet stores.

Of course, Michael Vick is the former professional athlete who was charged with dog fighting.

I'd say that's a pretty "savage" comparison, no?

Oh but don't worry, Robin didn't stop there.

"This is a man who said 'my daughter is hot.' Even people in Arkansas said 'that's [expletive] wrong... And that [expletive] hair, my God."

Shockingly, Eric has yet to comment on Zelda's tweet or on the video of Robin roasting his dad.

What do you think of Zelda's tweet?! Did you know about this clip of Robin Williams?
