Another day, another reason to laugh at President Donald Trump, this time for doing something so spectacularly stupid that the jokes just come far too easily.

Despite warnings from experts that staring directly at the sun during a solar eclipse can damage your eyes the President of the United States appeared to do exactly that.

The New York Daily News reported on the move with the headline, 'NOT TOO BRIGHT' and said that a White House aide in the crowd below shouted "Don't look!" just as Trump looked.

Of course Twitter exploded and just won't let this one go...
