You are not alone! Oh, how the hilarity ensued outside of the Supreme Court today. CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin made a prediction while reporting on the SCOTUS circus as the court hears same-sex marriage arguments.

Does he never learn? That didn’t work out so well last time, either. This time, he was subsequently hit in the face with a large umbrella from a light stand.

Toobin is fine and tweeted about it himself.

Twitter users are gasping for breath.

Indeed. Never change, Internet.

    Always hilarious when someone could get their eye poked out.

      Well, he’s wearing glasses. But then again, he’s a lawyer, so he’ll probably sue. Tort reform now.

    are they sure it wasn’t barney frank in drag and the wind caught his skirt?

    I remember Major Garrett reporting a story from the WH lawn in a driving snowstorm. When a lightstand fell over on him, he just caught it one-handed and kept going with the story, didn’t miss a beat.

    Sometimes, it’s best to just let stupidity run its course.

    BTW @TedLieu and I are having quite an exchange on the gay marriage issues at the Supreme Court. It started with my blog post:

    It didn’t hit him hard enough, he’s still standing

    Toobin’s claim to fame is reporting on the OJ trial. Not a resume enhancer and certainly not our go to guy for life altering decisions. The umbrella wacking – poetic justice!

    Why couldn’t that have been Al Franken being hit in the head with an umbrella? Darn.
