#FakeNews: The Hill Says Trump Was ‘Staring’ at Sun Without Protective Glasses During Eclipse – NOT TRUE
The Hill ran a headline on Monday that read, ‘WATCH: Trump stares at solar eclipse without protective glasses’ and the liberals went crazy attacking Trump; many hoped for him to go blind and die.
President Trump watched the solar eclipse from the White House with First Lady Melania and 11-year-old Barron Trump with protective glasses. It was only for a brief moment that Trump glanced up at the sun and now the fake news is making it appear that Trump is an idiot who stared at the eclipse without glasses.
In fact, many reporters can be seen glancing up at the sun during the eclipse without protective glasses on as they were reporting live and no one made a big deal about it.
