‘The Daily Show’ Host Calls Out President Trump for Looking Directly at Eclipse

Trevor Noah pokes fun at the first family's watch party.

Trevor Noah came back from a two-week vacation just in time to talk about the total solar eclipse that left most of America stunned and awed yesterday. But even though the president’s aides warned him not to look directly at the sun, Donald Trump was photographed at the White House peering at the sun without the safety glasses on. Noah didn’t let this pass by without comment.

“Apparently, the president’s aides were really worried about him so they told him not to look directly into the sun. And Donald Trump was like, ‘Don’t worry about me! That’s my policy. Every day, don’t look at the son,” said Noah on the show, but instead of pulling up a picture of the eclipse, pulled up a picture of Trump’s second son, Eric. “Don’t talk to the son. And definitely don’t celebrate the son’s birthday. Nothing.”

The late night host also mocked Trump and Melanie watching the eclipse together. “Donald Trump and Melania were even watching together—which surprised me because… two minutes of total darkness? That should have been her chance to escape!” he said.

Noah also said that he doesn’t think anyone enjoyed the eclipse as much as Fox News’ Shep Smith. He then showed clips of Smith singing Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and just being all around giddy about the event.
