LOL, you really do have to give it the guy — it's not easy to be both a president and a punch line all at once, but Mr. Donald Trump never fails to do just that. This story is of a completely apolitical variety and if nothing else, we are here to strictly discuss the matter at hand — The President of The freakin' United States of America decided to abandon all logic and gaze upon today's solar eclipse with no eye protection. According to CNN, who caught the full situation on video —
"This, from the White House pool report of the moment filed by the Guardian's Ben Jacobs is, um, amazing: 'At approximately 2:39, the President initially gesticulated to the crowd below and pointed at the sky. As he did so, one of the White House aides standing beneath the Blue Room Balcony shouted 'don't look."
The footage above from MSNBC pretty much gives you the basic gist and I mean, at this point, should any of us really be surprised? The man isn't exactly a stickler for the rules! To hell with retina damage, he does what he wants! Try as you might, ya'll can't keep a bad boy like Trump down. To all the toddlers out there who managed to listen to their parents and teachers and didn't look up at the eclipse, let this be a valuable lesson to you — you can completely disregard common sense and still be the most powerful man in the world! I don't know about you guys, but that's a lesson that definitely helps me rest peacefully at night. 'Merica!!!!
