Video has gone viral of President Donald Trump looking up at the sky during the solar eclipse without protective glasses, despite repeated warnings from scientists that doing so could lead to permanent eye damage.
Footage shows Trump on the balcony of the White House, standing with his wife Melania and their son Barron. Before putting on the special eclipse glasses he was provided, Trump squints up at the sky, smiles and points. “Don’t look!” an aide can be heard shouting off camera. The awkward moment quickly gained traction on Twitter and many amused folks have created memes out of it.
