Don’t look directly at the eclipse or at this picture of Donald Trump looking at the eclipse.
On Monday afternoon, Donald Trump stepped out of the White House with Melania Trump and their son, Barron, to watch the eclipse. However, unlike us mere mortals, Trump decided that he shouldn’t heed ubiquitous warnings to avert his eyes and stared directly at the star as the moon passed in front of it.
