Of Course Donald Trump Looked at the Eclipse Without Glasses”

Ted Mann of The Wall Street Journal was present at the White House on Monday at 2:44 p.m. when the president and First Lady Melania Trump stepped out onto the Truman Balcony to view the eclipse.

According to the White House pool report, the President initially gesticulated to a crowd of administration staffers gathered below the balcony and pointed to the sky. He squinted as he briefly looked up at the sun.

The White House announced Saturday that the Trumps would not participate in the December 3 event in Washington, D.C.to avoid "political distraction".

Then Trump put on special viewing glasses and watched for about 90 seconds.

"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", NASA explained on its website.
