After WEEKS Of Warnings, Trump Took His Chances On Blindness During The Eclipse

What was literally the one thing you knew about the eclipse that happened Monday, August 21st? I mean, you couldn’t keep the exact time straight in your head, you probably spent at least half an hour Googling whether or not you could film it in selfie mode, and admit it — you asked yourself why we don’t go blind on just any old day when it’s not an eclipse if we happen to look at the sun. You know all that now, but the one thing you knew the entire time was don’t look directly at the eclipse without special glasses.

I mean, you heard them talking about the Amazon recall of shoddy glasses on the radio. Your local news station probably aired a special on that Oregon guy in 1962 who looked directly at the eclipse and burned out a spot in his vision.

Trump missed all of that, apparently.

The Dumbass-in-Chief just couldn’t help himself. And neither could Twitter. You’d better shield your eyes from these burns:
