    OMG. I heard about the Toobin thing, and I still don’t totally get it. Why would anyone get the urge to masturbate while watching your colleagues on a zoom call?? I feel like something doesn’t add up here…

    • Maryanna says:

      He probably wasn’t watching them. I’d guess he had it muted and minimumized and thought his camera was off as well. He may have just forgotten they were there. Ughh I have big time second hand embarrassment reading about it

    • Mindy_Dopple says:

      THIS!! You’re in the middle of a work meeting and you decide to jerk off?!? Wtf.

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        @ Mindy_Doople, I know, like what makes a “man” want to wank in the middle of a zoom call. This is too suspicious in fact.
        Sad news for Redford though. Losing his son, as I have heard that he has always maintained a loving and strong relationship with his children, though he and his ex didn’t divorce until they were older. He cherishes his children and I have seen previous interviews in which he keeps his kids very close to him and is very involved with their lives.

      • sarphati says:

        I’m with you! Jeffrey Toobin is a fantastic legal analyst and just shines on CNN. Oh Jeffrey, say it isn’t so. What were you THINKING???

    • FHMom says:

      From what I read, the Zoom meeting was on a break and he was watching porn,

      • Charlie says:

        Shame about Toobin living in just that one room, with just the one computer. I mean, ffs , you do not watch porn (interactive at that) on the same computer, in the same space, where you and your colleagues are on a zoom break. How does this even need to be said?

      • Truthiness says:

        No way. He was cybering in a second zoom call with a sidepiece, 100%. But I’m sure that’s what he needs to say to his wife and the world. And how nice of him to share his shortcomings with the world to give us this moment of levity.

    • JanaTHING says:

      Sounds like he might have been trying to multitask, which I find is impossible for anyone with a penis.

  2. I am Mimi says:

    I initially thought he was just pantless and happened to get up and showed himself by mistake. But this seems intentional. Oh my gah!

    • schmootc says:

      That’s what I thought too, but if not, then yeah, that’s just nasty. I pretty much wear T-shirts and pajama pants these days, but I’d be embarrassed if my co-workers saw the pants.

  3. GR says:

    Toobin’s a pig. He wrote a horrible, victim-blaming book about Patty Hearst’s kidnapping.

    • JEM says:

      He also had a 10 year affair with his NBC colleague’s daughter, impregnated her, and then forced her to go to court to prove paternity and request child support. Total pig.

      ETA: I should have read down in the comments and also should have known you awesome Celebitches would already point out how gross he is and has been for years!

  4. Ariel says:

    Seriously, what happens on a work call that leads on to think- i need to bring myself to orgasm right now!
    I am baffled.
    Is it just that he is gross?

    • Kate says:

      I mean – maybe an attractive coworker? Not saying what he did is ok AT ALL but in a hypothetical situation I can understand feeling some kind of way getting to stare at a work crush whom you haven’t seen in person in months. *ducks back into perv cave*

      • bettyrose says:

        Kate,
        I get that you’re just trying to find a plausible scenario, but dude is 60 years old. On a physical, emotional, and psychological level, just, no. That said, I’m mid-40s and chatting with you guys while I’m on a zoom meeting and would be mortified if my coworkers knew. Naaah, I’d be slightly embarrassed and only because I should’ve been paying more attention. ;-)

      • Kate says:

        haha no – I wasn’t at all suggesting a plausible scenario for jerking off on a work call. that’s a very clear decency violation there. only answering ariel’s question about what could make someone feel horny on a work call and I can’t act like that’s never happened to me

    • Truthiness says:

      I’d bet 20 bucks that this is a case where he is cybering with someone else on another tab or laptop. I just want to know who else was on the zoom and how long did they laugh?

  5. Rhiley says:

    Jeffrey Toobin needs to be outright fired from every place he works.

  6. Darla says:

    He had a porn call or something on the other line apparently. I personally think doing this with his colleagues on hold was part of the thrill, some sort of kink.

    I love the New Yorker and get it delivered weekly. It’s so horrible how men have to ruin every little thing in life by rubbing their genital on it.

  7. MaryContrary says:

    Honestly, I hate to laugh at someone else’s embarrassing incident-but it was a really highlight on twitter yesterday in the midst of the dumpster fire that is 2020.

  8. Insomniac says:

    People on Twitter last night were grabbing New Yorker cartoons and replacing every caption with “Jeffrey Toobin took his dick out on a Zoom call,” and I think I broke something from laughing. 2020 is going to keep 2020ing until the very last second, isn’t it?

    • StormsMama says:

      Thank you so much for this comment 👏👏👏 yes it’s looks like 2020 can’t and won’t stop 2020ing!!! 🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😭😭😭

      Also Toobin is definitely deviant – bc what he did is the old school equivalent of the guy who parks near a park and jerks off while trying to make contact with runners passing by; or who wipe his dick out while riding his bike by a girl running in the park; the guy that is secretly taking a bath while on a speaker call with a female coworker. They guy that is married but still drunk texts exes from pre-marriage when he’s feeling nostalgic “miss you”
      (By the way- he may not have done those exact things- but this reveals he’s THAT KIND OF GUY TO THE CORE)

      This guy needs to lose his job NOW

    • lucy2 says:

      The cartoons with that caption were funny. I hate to make light of what his poor coworkers witnessed, but good Lord. 2020.
      Sam Bee’s show had a good take on Zoom Dick trending: “Another normal day in the greatest country in the world.”

  9. Sam the Pink says:

    The whole Toobin thing is nasty. But then again, he doesn’t have an amazing reputation. This is, after all, the same man who cheated on his wife with the daughter of one of his CNN colleagues, got her pregnant, tried to pressure her into an abortion and when she had a boy, denied paternity and dodged the courts for years until he finally was forced to take a DNA test that proved he was the father and then proceeded to fight her on child support to the point where he got his wages garnished. I can’t say this surprises me.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Ack-I read this yesterday on twitter but didn’t know how true it was. Off to google . . .

      • Sam the Pink says:

        The woman’s name is Casey Greenfield (I’m not doxxing, this is a matter of public record). Just googling her name pulls up everything about the case.

    • Hoot says:

      @STP – What an absolutely poor excuse for a human. That’s all I’ve got after reading your comment. Ugh.

    • Insomniac says:

      WOW, I didn’t know about any of that and just read up on it. You’d think Toobin of all people would learn to keep it in his pants, but I guess he’s a slow learner.

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      The only thing I knew about him until this minute was that he was appeared on CNN regularly, or used to during election commentary. This is so gross and I am so happy I didn’t know all this before, I wish I could go back to not knowing.

  10. Lady2Lazy says:

    Tory Burch collection is preppy, hippy and has major Indian fashion influence and I am seeing a lot of Annie Hall/Diane Keaton vibes, but a majority of her jackets and that trench is stunning!!

  11. BeanieBean says:

    Toobin should be fired, not just suspended.

    • Nancito says:

      He was probably suspended, and not fired, so that the New Yorker could see which way public opinion was heading – and if it seems that this story will not go away, then, and only then, will they probably fire him.

  12. olliesmom says:

    How can someone like him be so stupid?

  13. Milkweed says:

    I hope the New Yorker call was recorded. I want to know his colleagues’ reactions. Also, are co-workers touching themselves on the regular on or off video? Pandora’s box so open…

    • SM says:

      I know. Next time I am on a call, I am bot sure I will be able to concentrate on what is being said. And as someone above commented, maybe it’s a crush or being attracted to someone on the call but come on. Just go for it while in the call. It also sounds like they were doing some political role play, how do you come up with “hmm. This is the time to get my dick out and just go for it”? Ugh. Seriously, someone from the New Yorker? Even smart, educated men just can’t help and need to ruin everything on life, like reading good publications with their cocks.

  14. FHMom says:

    I was so sad to hear about James Redford. He seemed like a decent guy, with a family that loved him very much. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

  15. Beech says:

    Yesterday I saw a link to Vice that explained all, he was masturbating. Their words. He and the CNN colleagues were running through a simulation, election night or post election, I think, with different teams ie left, right, military etc. when there was a break for groups to retire into separate teams to go through talking points/strategies for ten minutes. Toobin took that time to open a different window or different phone, whatever when two people witnessed the deed. Eeewww

  16. Jumpingthesnark says:

    What Toobin did is gross and he should be fired. He couldn’t wait until after work was done to rub one out??? Come on…..
    Taking solace in Blake Shelton and his GOlden Girls fandom……..

  17. FilmTurtle says:

    I have participated in approximately 3,000 Zoom calls over the past seven months and apparently human beings are utterly incapable of figuring out how to unmute their microphone and/or turn on/off their webcams. (Nor can they resist showing everyone their cats.)

    So I am not surprised this idiot somehow felt he could have a wank and not be seen by anyone.

    P.S. Even if you put yourself on “mute,” Zoom’s closed captioning still works…!

  18. Mariane says:

    When I heard about Toobin I was curious about the topic and work he’s having. I dont understand how an election simulation made him horney!!! I mean who would do this?!! Who would take the risk???? Either he has a addiction or it was deliberate

  19. Veronica S. says:

    Between this, the other reporter caught pantless, and the Argentinian with his mistress, you could totally start a game of “Exhibitionist or Idiot?” bingo.

  20. Alex says:

    Why was he still on CNN after trying to buy his mistress an abortion? I hope they don’t let him back!

  21. Donna says:

    Nasty, Nasty Jeffrey. Eww.

  22. Elisa says:

    I didn’t know about Toobin’s shady history and I don’t watch CNn usually. I just knew his name from the excellent book The Nine about the Supreme Court Justices, I read it over 10 years ago. How stupid and unprofessional do you have to be to rub one out while on a work call???

    • Elisa says:

      Also, if he goes back to work, how unsafe will his colleagues feel, especially the women? I would be super uncomfortable and maybe refuse to be on a work call with a male colleague who I knew had done something like this.

  23. FancyPants says:

    Must be rough for men this year, not having as much access to sexually harass women in person.

  24. fluffy says:

    Looks as if Toobin pulled a Weiner… er Anthony Weiner, yes that’s what I meant to say.

  25. Summergirl says:

    Kaiser shows herself once again to be a master at photo selection with the photo of Toobin at the top holding up his hand.

  26. DeltaJuliet says:

    What is with men and their obsessions with their damn penis. Put it away!
