We’re sorry, we shouldn’t be getting such a chuckle out of this story, but it must be told. As Twitchy reported earlier, VICE reported that Jeffrey Toobin had been suspended by the New Yorker after he “exposed himself during a Zoom call last week between members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio.” CNN, where Toobin is a legal analyst, issued a statement saying that Toobin would be taking some time off “while he deals with a personal issue.”
OK, so since it was a Zoom call, maybe Toobin was wearing a loose-fitting bathrobe, and it just kind of undid itself. Not according to VICE, which has updated its report to clarify that Toobin was a little more active in the indecent exposure than the first version of the story suggested.
"This piece has been updated with more detail about the call and the headline has been updated to reflect that Toobin was masturbating." https://t.co/kfD4AVXPiE

That’s an actual editor’s note appended to the story.
I did not expect the ending of that sentence.

The article says the call was an "erection simulation". I might have misread that.

Many of us figured out that detail on our own.

Starting to think Jeffrey Toobin has a problem.

Look, this is another version of Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose and Moonves. People at CNN have known about Toobin for YEARS and covered it up. The guy is a major creep and a disgusing perv who makes almost every woman at the network sick.

Update: The same Russians who hacked Hunter Biden’s laptop also hacked Jeffrey Toobin’s Zoom Camera. https://t.co/6SdoqFSnc1
