Anti-Trump zealot and CNN's chief legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, was suspended from his job at The New Yorker on Monday after getting stark naked and masturbating in front of colleagues on a zoom call.

It was originally reported that he "exposed" himself, but now VICE is reporting he whacked it:
Two people who were on the call told VICE separately that the call was an election simulation featuring many of the New Yorker's biggest stars: Jane Mayer was playing establishment Republicans; Evan Osnos was Joe Biden, Jelani Cobb was establishment Democrats, Masha Gessen played Donald Trump, Andrew Marantz was the far right, Sue Halpern was left wing democrats, Dexter Filkins was the military, and Jeffrey Toobin playing the courts. There were also a handful of other producers on the call from the New Yorker and WNYC.

Both people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak freely, noted that it was unclear how much each person saw, but both said that they saw Toobin jerking off. The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.
It was supposed to be an election simulation Mr. Toobin, not an erection stimulation!

***Original story follows***

From New York Post, "New Yorker suspends writer Jeffrey Toobin for showing penis during Zoom call":
Writer Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended by The New Yorker -- because he exposed himself on a Zoom call between magazine colleagues and WNYC workers, a report said Monday.

Toobin told Vice in a statement: "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers."

A spokeswoman for the magazine said, "Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter."
Toobin asked for "time off" from CNN, which they immediately granted.

Trump's enemies are very strange people.
