Like many other American citizens, Donald Trump stepped outside to watch Tuesday's rare solar eclipse. However, instead of heeding widespread safety advice, the president decided to forgo his protective glasses and looked directly into the sun—which is, of course, dangerous and frowned upon. But later that night, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson applauded the effort, declaring Trump's choice to burn his retinas as the "most impressive thing any president's ever done."

During Tuesday's episode, Desus Nice and Kid Mero decided to relive this very rare moment in history and blasted Trump's unhealthy choice and Carlson's subsequent reaction.

You can watch last night's Desus & Mero for free online now, and be sure to catch new episodes weeknights at 11 PM on VICELAND.
