Robin Williams tears into Donald Trump in resurfaced 2012 stand-up clip

A video of Robin Williams roasting Donald Trump has resurfaced after a tense exchange between the comedian’s daughter and the president’s son.

Eric Trump recently shared a clip of Williams making fun of Joe Biden.

Zelda Williams responded by suggesting the younger Trump “look up what [Williams] said about your Dad”, adding: “Promise you, it’s much more ‘savage.’”

While she didn’t reference specific lines, Twitter users shared an excerpt from a 2012 comedy set during which Williams took several jabs at Trump.

“Donald Trump is the Wizard of Oz,” Williams says in the clip.

“He plays Monopoly with real f***ing buildings. This is a scary man.”

Referring to comments made by Trump about his daughter Ivanka, Williams adds: “This is a man who said, ‘My daughter is hot.’

“Even people in Arkansas went, ‘That’s f***ing wrong. That’s just way out of place.’”

Williams also mocks Trump’s hairstyle in the segment.

The comedian died in August 2014 at the age of 63. He would have turned 69 last month.
