Entertainment 22 August, 2017


While millions of Americans were equipped to admire the impressive solar eclipse visible in the sky, the president, Donald Trump has defied the instructions of security, and has temporarily viewed without glasses customized.

And a blunder in addition to Donald Trump ! On Monday 21 August, the Americans have had the opportunity to witness a total eclipse of the sun. An exceptional event that had not occurred for nearly a century from the other side of the Atlantic, and that requires taking some precautions, like wearing glasses fitted with lenses special. What the president of the United States does not seem to have understood. Accompanied by his wife Melania and their son Barron on the balcony of the White House, Donald Trump has tried to see the eclipse with the naked eye. And he was quickly called back by an adviser who has urged him to not watch, he repeated the experience a second and then a third time.

Surreal, this scene has caused a real uproar on the social networks, where its many critics have given heart to joy at him once more. If this may, at first, seem fun, it is important to remember that watching an eclipse without protection is extremely dangerous and can cause irreversible damage to eyes. Fortunately for him, Donald Trump has finally put glasses adapted and was able to watch the show safely.
