Trump watches eclipse from White House

Donald Trump stares directly into the sun as aide yells “Don't look!”

"The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses"'". The event has been closely monitored and many events are being organized in U.S. and Canada for people to watch the Solar Eclipse. According to a White House pool report, one of Trump's aides shouted "Don't look" when Trump came out and pointed at the sky.

"I will be declining to attend the reception at the White House", said Kennedy Center honoree Carmen de Lavallade in an official statement Thursday. Millions of people have flocked to areas of the USA that are in the "path of totality" in order to experience a total solar eclipse.

The president, First Lady Melania Trump, and their son Baron, all wearing eye protection, watched for a few minutes.




Earlier on Monday, First Daughter Ivanka Trump reminded followers to wear protective glasses for the eclipse. Naturally, they had the protective eyewear necessary to view the eclipse. So even if you're excited about the eclipse and think one brief glimpse at the sun before it completely hides behind the moon is worth it - it's not. Corneal damage caused by UV exposure can also cause blurred vision and inflammation.

At the conclusion of the spectacle, the viewing party heading back into the White House, led by the President, the First Lady, and Barron Trump.
