In case you missed it – and, given that most Americans are too busy working their jobs and paying their families to care about the liberal media elite, maybe you did – New Yorker reporter and CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin was suspended after he…how to put this delicately…whipped out his stuff on a Zoom call with his fellow staffers.

True story. In what he’s now claiming was a “mistake,” Toobin, a hard leftist who’s profited off his hatred for Trump, stood up and exposed himself to his colleagues during a virtual meeting earlier this week. Toobin claims the whole thing was an error, saying he thought he’d muted the video before taking out his genitals. 

"I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera," Toobin said. "I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers."

"I believed I was not visible on Zoom," he added. "I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video."

Which ignores, of course, the basic fact that there’s no justifiable reason to expose yourself on a virtual call with your coworkers, regardless of whether or not you’ve muted your video.

In response, the New Yorker has suspended Toobin indefinitely and said they're investigating the matter, while CNN added rather delicately that "Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted."
