You probably didn’t realize that today, December 27, 2019, is a special day. But it is.
Tomorrow is a big day! I hope Im not the only person who remembers this tweet.

You see, today marks 18 months since CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin made this bold prediction:
Anthony Kennedy is retiring. Abortion will be illegal in twenty states in 18 months. #SCOTUS

Wow! Did he call it, or what?
Can we get an update https://t.co/IIdMYuksEq

18 months to the day.
This is the insight that qualifies someone to be the “Chief Legal Analyst” for a major cable news station. https://t.co/o9DTusS433

It’s important for the media to fact-check itself. This was not a “this may happen” or “this could happen.” It was a declarative fact from CNN’s chief legal analyst, who specializes in the Supreme Court. Today is 18 months. And abortion is illegal in zero states. https://t.co/ctGFuUXWaF

Another swing and a miss for @cnn.

Time’s up and you’re still the worst legal analyst in the world.
