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

Sure, scientists have repeatedly warned everyone not to look directly at the sun. There are other, safe ways of viewing the solar eclipse, they said.

But hey, if you think climate change is a hoax, why believe anything else those nerds say?!

That seems to have been Donald Trump’s position as he stared up at the flaming mass we lovingly refer to as our sun.

Together with Melania and Barron, the first family stood out on the Blue Room Balcony of the White House to observe the astrological event. Naturally, they had the protective eyewear necessary to view the eclipse.

Then the Donald took off his glasses, gestured to a large crowd of aides on the South Lawn, and stared blankly up at the sun. One staffer reportedly yelled, “Don’t look!”

Could there be a more fitting image to sum up this presidency?

    Hope the bastard goes blind

    Hey, Donald, go ahead and stare all you want. ObamaCare has got you covered!

    When the article referred to a “flaming mass”, I was certain they were referring to Trump.

  • DCguy

    This reminds me of stories you hear about certain over-bred animals like turkeys that are supposedly so stupid they will look up into the rain and drown themselves. Those stories are false, never thought I’d actually see something like it.

  • Bill

    He created it so it won’t hurt him!

  • Heywood Jablowme

    Next he will sue GOD, and the religious hypocrites who voted for him will agree with him that it’s all God’s fault.

  • Brody

    Well, I suppose it’s as fitting an image for his presidency as was the shot of Obama riding a bike while wearing a helmet and mom jeans . . . except staring into the sun seems slightly more badass.

    • Heywood Jablowme

      It’s so funny that you guys go on & on & on & on about skinny Obama’s supposed “mom jeans” incident when obviously (to quote Bill Maher): “Trump’s ass is fatter than Kim Kardashian’s.”

    • CaliKyle

      The former equals poor fashion choice while the latter illustrates blatant, profound stupidity. Nope, no badass. Just bad, yes.

      Ok Sorry, Queerty, come on now. The troll has literally proven that they aren’t here for actual commentary. They are so against rational discussion and such trump trolls that this screename is actually defending Trump for staring at the sun during an eclipse.

      I mean, I’m guessing that Mo bro would have his other screenames defend Trump if he sat down on the ground and rubbed dog crap in his hair.

      Let me guess, they’d say “YEAH!!! Look how badass he is, That OBAMA would NEVER have the BALLS to rub dog crap in his hair!”

      I mean come on, lets make it even MORE obvious that they are probably Russian sourced Troll bots.

    maybe someone should tell him he’s not allowed to go swimming in boiling sufuric acid.

  • jcoberkrom

    All you haters. Of course he stared into the sun. He knew the danger of doing so was the product of FAKE NEWS. Or science. They’re the same thing to him!!

  • grethomory

    As my good friend’s mantra used to be “Find a fool bump his head…plaster it to the wall.”

  • Jaxton

    Mr Trump is not one to jump at shadows.

    • DCguy

      That’s because he can’t see them anymore since he did this.

  • Jack Meoff

    The man is not smart enough to know he shouldn’t stare into the sun let alone an eclipse but people still chose him to run the country. Don’t act surprised people.

    • 1EqualityUSA

      He can’t do anything right.

  • 1898

    and he did it TWICE, once when his son was off to the side and again when his son walked in front of him

    good god
