The HBO clip of late comedian and actor Robin Williams talking about then-Vice President Joe Biden has reappeared. In the video, the world-celebrated comedian poked fun at the then-vice President and his infamous gaffes, comparing POTUS to Williams’ version of a drunk uncle.
Williams made fun of Biden’s disastrous interview
Days before the Williams’ stand up he filmed for HBO, Obama’s vice president said in an interview, “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes.”
The president 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.”
The then-vice president continued, “Throughout my career, I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African-American community.” Biden concluded, “This diversity makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.”
In the 30 seconds clip, Williams, a lifelong Democrat, said, “There’s always ramblin’ Joe Biden,” adding, “Joe says s - - t that even people with [Tourette syndrome] go, ‘No.'”
Williams took matters further
“Joe is like your uncle who’s on a new drug and hasn’t got the dosage right,” Williams joked. “I’m proud to work with Barack America — ‘He’s not a superhero, you idiot — come here!’ ”
The clip went viral in 2020
Before the elections, the clip took over Twitter. The younger generations are now sharing it as a comedy classic on TikTok.
President Obama was a fan
In 2014, Robin Williams passed away, leaving millions of fans in tears. Among them was Barack Obama, who tweeted, “Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny … and everything in between. But he was one of a kind.” On one of many TikTok videos, a user left a comment, “This aged well.” Another wrote, “If he were still alive, he would have had a Field Day with Joe now. I miss Robin so much.”
A third person wrote, “Robin Williams was such a legend. There was never a movie of his that didn’t make me laugh!” Another shared, “The Man was a genius.”
One TikTok user suggested, “Williams was noticing the cognitive decline way before me.” Another wrote, “Hmmm, maybe Joe is the reason this legend that’s not with us anymore.”
Many claim that the president’s gaffes are due to his advanced age. However, Biden always had issues and shared how he struggled with a speech disorder as a boy. Biden did not entirely overgrow it, so some gaffes are understandable. Stress only makes the condition worse.
Biden offered advice to kids with a stutter
Joe Biden’s stutter is not a secret. The president spoke to his young fans about the condition numerous times. He also shared that he was bullied by some classmates and a nun who was his teacher.
This does not mean William was not a comedy genius
As a person in the public eye, Biden got used to unpleasant comments. But, with Williams, it was not even malicious, and not only because he supported the Democrats. Williams had a gift for making others happy, and that remains priceless!
