In a moment you probably should have seen coming: President Donald J. Trump, despite consistent warnings to do the opposite, stared directly at the solar eclipse.
If there is one thing everyone knows about Monday’s solar eclipse, it is that staring at the eclipse without proper eyewear can cause permanent eye damage.
But ever one to defy warnings, Trump removed his protective eyewear and looked straight at the sun. It’s what he does best! Now the internet’s doing what it does best making memes.
Correction, August 2, 6:09 PM: An earlier version of this post erroneously suggested that White House advisors had warned Trump against staring at the eclipse. It’s since been updated.
