The President Who Looked at the Sun
AP


Despite warnings, Trump gazed directly at the eclipse.



During the solar eclipse today, President Donald Trump stepped onto the White House balcony with his wife and his son Barron, and he looked up at the sun.

According to White House reporters, an aide shouted a warning that he should not look at the sun. Nevertheless, he persisted.

There were parts of the United States, along path of totality, that allowed people to look directly at the eclipse. But Washington, D.C., was not among them.


I mean honestly, can he follow directions, at all? After all the talk of the need for eye protection? And we're supposed to trust him on anything? Every day it's another *face palm* moment.

Many people are already asking, is Donald Trump well enough to be President? Is he fit for office? These are fundamental concerns, many are raising and they must be answered without delay.

Now, we have to add an eye doctor to a growing list of professional evaluations that are in order.

But hey, he's planning a campaign rally in Phoenix tomorrow so get those woo flags waving.


Maybe this is what they mean by that phrase, "Blindly following the leader."

Hey kids, look at the eclipse!

Madness, I tell you, madness.

*shakes head

PS: OP was moved to the mud-pit.
Sorry, while I scoop runny mud in the other hand.

You do realize that NASA said it's fine to look at the full eclipse, right?

Wrong thread I think.

ETA: I watched a few of his speeches earlier and WOW.... if this dude can become president, I'm convinced that 100% of my workers can also become president of the US.

He's hard to watch speak tbh.

It’s common sense not to stare directly at the Sun with your naked eyes or risk damaging your vision, and that advice holds true for a partially eclipsed Sun. But, only with special-purpose solar filters, such as eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer, you can safely look directly at the Sun. 

NASA recommends that people who plan to view the eclipse should check the safety authenticity of viewing glasses to ensure they meet basic proper safety viewing standards.

It's only safe to look at the eclipse with the naked eye during totality. And during totality, you wouldn't have to squint the way he's doing there.

Well, I can say with full confidence that I've glanced at the sun plenty of times without damage.
Obviously don't stare.

Even today I probably took a few direct hits- pulling away the welding glass I was looking though but not diverting my eyes.


Probably not harmless, but certainly not the instant permanent blindness everyone would fear monger these days.

Lighten up, everyone. You're all going to die sooner or later, live a little first.

Wow. What a story.
But...so what?

So did everyone around me.
Who gives a flying crap about this non-news?

Talk about grasping at straws.

You people and these stories are pathetic.
The man did what 90% of people do.
He looked at the sun.

Hurry up and find ways to make him look bad. Stop the presses! Trump looked at the sun! The sky is falling!

Ridiculous.

Yeah but I think you're missing the point: Trump is an idiotic a-hole.

Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (“totality”), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality

Unfortunately, he is the role model. Slightly higher bar than us.

Congrats on the most ludicrous thread ever...
And that's saying a lot considering entire forums exist solely to debate whether or not the earth is flat...

So pat yourself on the back...
And....

Just when I think partisan politics can not get any more stupid.
It goes and gets stupider.

You realize that you can look up without staring directly at the sun, right?

I saw that. That's a very brief peroid of time. You'd have to know when to look and when to look away. Apparently the way Trump squinted he didn't know.

Like Trump haters really care ?

They don't even give a snip if he would be assassinated.

They sure wouldn't care if he went blind.,

I intend that as a display of a form of literature devised constantly to rabblerouse with petty insults.
LIKE the idea behind THIS thread, slowpokes.

But when it's a ludicrous right-wing thread you pat the OP on the back.
