Someone call in a professional cleaning company equipped with a black light, because legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin is leaving CNN, after remarkably not having been fired after masturbating on a Zoom call. CNN has proved that it’s not above firing some big names like Chris Cuomo, but Toobin got off (pun intended) with a brief suspension.

The Hill reports:
“Friends, I’ve decided that, after 20 years, I’m leaving CNN after my vacation,” Toobin wrote in a Twitter post.
“Was great to spend my last day on air with pals Wolf, Anderson and Don. Love all my former colleagues,” he added, referring to CNN anchors Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.
In a statement, a spokesperson said CNN is “grateful for Jeffrey’s contributions to the network over the years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Toobin was fired from The New Yorker after that Zoom call, so we’re not sure what his plans are now.
Any idea in what new erection he'll go?

He’s pumped about this decision.

Wonder why. Was the competition too stiff? Is he looking for something more hands-on?

Oh well, different strokes I guess…

Looks like he'll take care of himself going solo. He'll be fine, he's had tons of exposure in front of the camera.

I don’t know how he pulled this one off. Wherever he goes, I’m sure he’ll rise to the occasion.
Regardless, I bet he’ll have a happy ending.

Is he feeling around for another gig?

He always rubbed people the wrong way

He came and went so fast

He will handle it himself

We hate to sound like progressives here, but the fact that he kept his job after that is the epitome of white male privilege.
