Robin Williams Shreds Joe Biden from Beyond the Grave as Decade-Old Video Goes Viral
Late comedian skewers 'rambling' VP in resurfaced bit from 2009
Late comedian Robin Williams has been shredding Joe Biden on social media from beyond the grave after a decade-old video of the much-loved entertainer has reemerged and gone viral.
A 2009 clip of Robin Williams ripping into then-Vice President Biden's "rambling" during a stand-up routine has resurfaced online, and fans are loving it.
The old video has emerged just as Democratic presidential nominee Biden has come under fire for his remarks about African American and Latino diversity.
The clip, which was posted to Twitter, is from Williams' HBO special "Weapons of Self Destruction" and shows the comedian hilariously calling out Biden for his infamous flubs at speaking events.
"We still have comedy though, we still have great comedy out there," Williams cracks to a crowd.
"There's always rambling Joe Biden. What the f--k!"
"Joe says s--t that even people with Tourette's go, 'No, no. What is going on?'" Williams added.
"Joe is like your uncle who is on a new drug and hasn't got the dosage right," he joked as the audience laughed.
When he was in his prime, Biden, a 77-year-old veteran lawmaker, was celebrated as a powerful and engaging public speaker.
He has been in steady decline over recent years, however, and is now frequently mocked for his confused gaffes during live appearances, so much so, that his presidential team is even refusing to debate President Trump in the run-up to he election.
The clip of Williams garnered popularity in the past week after Biden gave two disastrous interviews.
In Biden's recent interview with CBS News' Errol Barnett, the former vice president asked the interviewer if he was a cocaine junkie.
Then during a virtual conference, hosted by the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Biden said, "Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly diverse attitudes about different things."
Biden then responded to the black community for his questionable remarks but failed to give an apology.
"Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify," Biden tweeted.
"In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all."
Robin Williams isn't the only comedian questioning Biden's cognitive abilities.
Last week, stand-up comedian and podcast titan Joe Rogan joked that Biden's presidency would be like the movie "Weekend at Bernie's."
"I believe that there's also a large group of people that are very uncomfortable with a man who seems to be mentally compromised, winning the election, and doing so hiding," Rogan said of Biden.
"I mean, the guy's never — he was just at a thing the other day and he forgot where he was."
Rogan went on to suggest that Biden would be a puppet of his running mate.
“That VP is gonna have a bucket of lube and she’s gonna dunk it in there and stuff his hand up his a*s," Rogan said.
"She’s gonna be working him like ‘Weekend at Bernie’s,’” Rogan added, a reference to the 1989 comedy about two men trying to convince others that their dead boss was still alive.
