The United States witnessed a total Solar Eclipse, but instead of savouring each moment of the grand spectacle, the social media was more focussed on trolling President Donald Trump as he looked "directly at the Sun".
The U.S. president was 'mocked' online for 'appearing' to look directly at the Sun, despite people being warned that looking at it directly could damage one's eyes.
The Twitterati could not help but post comments tearing into him.
One user tweeted, "Scientists: Don't look straight at sun during eclipse. Trump: Hold my glasses."

"But president, you need special glasses to look at the eclipse"— LORD SLiME (@FRONZ1LLA) August 21, 2017

AIDE: You need to wear eclipse glasses.— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) August 21, 2017
TRUMP: Did Obama wear them?
AIDE: Yes - it's a safety issue.
TRUMP: Then it's settled. No glasses. pic.twitter.com/gXQrDat96l
This comes after Trump's infamous heel-heal comment, where he misspelled the word 'heal' as 'heel' in four tweets, which were later deleted.
Earlier in May, the President had tweeted: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe," which left many of his 36 million followers on Twitter baffled and entertained.
