Jerks are trying to trick Trump supporters into looking directly at the eclipse
The first rule of Eclipse Day is to never—never—look directly at the sun during the eclipse (or any other time, for that matter). But given how politics has saturated every facet of American life in 2017, even the moon passing in front of the giant glowing orb in the sky has become a partisan weapon.
On Twitter, countless critics of President Donald Trump are trying to trick the president’s supporters into looking directly at the solar eclipse. It is a vicious, horrible thing to suggest because anyone who actually does this would likely go blind for life or otherwise cause irreparable damage to their eyes.

I hope Trump looks at sun throughout the entire eclipse without any protective gear.
