Melania and Donald Trump Briefly Looked at the Solar Eclipse Without Glasses

Kasich: We're all rooting for Trump to 'get it together'

In a New York Times article on August 3, Lear was quoted as saying that he would forgo the White House reception because, "This is a presidency that has chosen to neglect totally the arts and humanities - deliberately defund them - and that doesn't rest pleasantly with me".

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and son Barron look up at the partial solar eclipse from the balcony of the White House in Washington, DC, on August 21, 2017.

Trump was photographed taking in the historic event from the White House with his son Barron and first lady Melania, who threw on a pair of black shades.

But despite warning from media outlets, scientists and others, the president looked directly into the sun for a brief second.

President Trump watches the solar eclipse from the Truman Balcony at the White House in Washington, U.S., August 21, 2017.

"Don't look", one staffer yelled from the White House lawn. The next solar eclipse over the continent will be in 2024. Almost 80 percent of the sun was blocked by the moon on Monday afternoon in Washington.

As Blaine Friedlander wrote in The Post, the first rule of enjoying the eclipse is to never look directly at the sun without eclipse glasses because it could damage the eyes, advice that Trump's daughter Ivanka also gave her Twitter followers.

The president will address the nation tonight at 9 p.m.
