Of Course Donald Trump Looked at the Eclipse Without Glasses

Kasich: We're all rooting for Trump to 'get it together'

Yep, as President Donald Trump watched the moon partially block the sun from the White House's Blue Room Balcony, he at one point threw caution to the wind and glanced at the sun sans eye protection. Barron, in a white polo, wore his protective sunglasses too. 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. It is unclear if he looked directly at the sun.

Stepping out on a balcony at the White House with his wife, Melania, and son Barron, Trump initially tried to look at the eclipse without protective lenses.

President Trump watched the solar eclipse from the White House on August 21.

But videos showed that Trump wasn't as cavalier as the still images made it seem: He looked up for a brief moment with his naked eyes beforehand in what appeared to be a joking manner before putting on his glasses.

Washington, D.C. experienced an approximately 80 percent eclipse and did not go completely dark.

From a balcony at the White House, President Donald Trump did it his own way - marveling briefly a few times the astronomical phenomenon sans shades after using them for his initial viewing.

He will give a speech on the United States' future in Afghanistan at 9 p.m. tonight, where he is expected to deploy 4,000 additional troops.
