I can’t help laughing when idiots politicise natural phenomena.

Eclipses happen every week of the year, they mostly happen over uninhabited places like the oceans so nobody sees them except sea farers. Get a grip.

Specifically the thread is about total Solar eclipses.  They do not happen every week.

Solar eclipses occur two to five times a year, five being exceptional; there last were five in 1935, and there will not be five again until 2206. The average number of total solar eclipses in a century is 66 for Earth as a whole.

Lunar eclipses are even rarer. It's hard to convince people of this because everyone's seen way more lunar than solar eclipses.
There's a good reason for that though. Half the planet sees a lunar eclipse every time one occurs. Solar eclipses can only be seen from a tiny proportion of the planet's surface.
