Donald Trump stares straight into the eclipse of the sun – the net is broken

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 | World News

America under the spell of the total solar eclipse. Millions of US citizens between the west and the east coast watched the rare cosmic show on Monday. President Donald Trump was also very impressed – and promptly made a capital mistake: he stared directly into the glowing sunlight without goggles. The mockery in the net was not long in coming.

It was in the late morning, when Trump accompanied by First Lady Melania and son Barron stepped onto the south balcony of the White House in Washington. A quick hint to the photographer, then a finger to the sky. A staff member still shouted to the President: "Do not look!" Too late: Trump glanced directly into the sun for several moments, then he set up a pair of goggles.

The model was made by Melania and Son Barron, who had their sunglasses ready. Daughter Ivanka had previously posted on Twitter a Selfie with goggles and wrote: "Remember to put on your glasses." Experts warn that an unprotected look directly into the sun can lead to serious eye injuries to blindness.

On the net, Trump reaped ridicule for his carelessness. "Is anyone surprised?" Asked Twitter user Gina Duncan. "He has great eyes, the best of all."

"Josh Jordan" thought of this fictitious dialogue: Trump rejects wearing sunglasses because Obama had worn one.

The newspaper "New York Daily News" was worth the headline. "Trump ignores Fake News and stares into the eclipse," the paper wrote, referring to Trumps' clashes with numerous US media, to whom he accuses lies.
