President Trump, Melania and Barron Check Out the Eclipse

Donald Trump stares directly into the sun as aide yells “Don't look!”

Just in case Trump is still President when the next solar eclipse comes in 2024 - it could happen! - here's a story he should read.

Monday's total solar eclipse was particularly rare because it's the first time since June 8, 1918, that the path of totality exclusively crossed the continental United States.

As the entire world watches in avid anticipation for the event of a century as the moon exhibits a full eclipse of the sun, President Trump, and the First Lady, joined by their family and members of the administration, watch the spectacle from the White House terrace.

The image of Trump looking into the sun has caused amusement on social media on Monday.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says President Donald Trump's racially fraught comments about "both sides" being to blame for a deadly neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, were "a mistake".

The last time the contiguous United States saw a total solar eclipse was February 26, 1979, when the path of totality only crossed the Pacific Northwest.

When our grandchildren one day bewilderedly ask us what it was like living through the Trump era, we will sigh deeply and resignedly, show them this picture, and then walk away without uttering a single word. Almost 80 percent of the sun was blocked by the moon on Monday afternoon in Washington. The longer a person stares into the sun, the more damage that can be done to the eye. Along with First Lady Melanie Trump and Barron, Mr. Trump stepped out to watch the eclipse from a White House balcony.
