Writer for The New Yorker and CNN’s chief legal pundit Jeffrey Toobin was caught doing more than merely exposing himself in a Zoom work meeting last week; in fact, he was shockingly viewed by his sickening decision to masturbate during a video conference with some of the magazine’s biggest names, trending the hashtag #MeToobin, and unfortunately it is not the first sex scandal of Toobin’s.
VICE News reported, “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.”
“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,’’ the 60-year-old married Harvard Law School grad told Vice, reporting on the cringe-worthy incident Monday. “I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”
Even if the video was off and he was muted, why on earth would he think it is acceptable to play with his manhood at the finish of a work conference? That leads me to believe that he usually does not make that mistake, meaning Toobin likely frequently engages in this activity while in work meetings or phone calls. That is disturbing and disgusting.
Jeffrey Toobin, a writer for The New Yorker since 1993, was a staunch NeverTrumper. His infatuation was borderline obsessive, recently coming out with a book about “The Investigation of Donald Trump” and is coming out next with a book about the first year of the Trump Presidency.
Not His First Rodeo
This is not his first sex scandal. In 2009, The New York Times reported Toobin, a 60-year-old dad with two adult kids by his wife since 1986, had an affair with Casey Greenfield, a litigation lawyer with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, and the daughter of one of Toobin’s then-CNN colleagues, Jeff Greenfield. This extramarital affair resulted in Ms. Greenfield birthing Jeffrey Toobin’s child, which he adamantly denied until it was proven by paternity test.
According to the New York Times, when Toobin’s mistress informed him she was pregnant in 2008, he—like fellow Democrat Hunter Biden—“questioned the paternity, balked at submitting to a test, and vowed to take no responsibility for a baby he wasn’t sure was his.” Greenfield sued Toobin for child support, upon which a paternity test confirmed that he was the child’s father.
Rush & Molloy at The NY Daily News then revealed in 2010 that a “well-known media figure” had received an inappropriate “shocking sexual proposition” to her. It has been taken down from the Daily News website in the past couple of years, so I linked an archived link to the article.
Rush & Molloy reported, “this being a family newspaper, we can’t repeat what Toobin allegedly told the woman he’d like to do to her. But the woman recalls, “I didn’t even know who he was. I couldn’t believe my ears. It was so disgusting. At the time, I never even knew people did that.“
“I said, ‘What did you just say?’ He just chuckled.”
The woman says Toobin “really chased me for a while. He called me at the office and left several sick messages.” Again, we can’t repeat them. Suffice it to say, he allegedly reiterated his first overture, only more graphically. Says the woman, “It was so vile.” She assures us the episode went nowhere.”
The Daily News dropped another bomb in the same article about Toobin, “meanwhile, another source claims that Toobin definitely seemed to enjoy his research in 2008, when he visited the Miami Velvet swingers club while reporting a New Yorker profile about political consultant Roger Stone.
Toobin wrote in that piece about how he visited the sex club because that was where Stone said he’d first heard that former Gov. Eliot Spitzer had a hooker habit.
What Toobin didn’t write, according to a witness, was that he stayed at the club well after Stone had left:
The New York Post reports that “he has since been suspended from the publication [The New Yorker] and on leave from the network [CNN] after being accused of performing manual labor in an online meeting with fellow mag talent.”
The Los Angeles Times reported, “despite his recently inactive status on social media, Toobin appeared Saturday on CNN. On Monday, the cable news network released a statement saying, “Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.””
CNN’s Brian Stelter not surprisingly brushed it off as an accident and victimized Toobin, claiming he was “sidelined” because of the looming election:
I knew many people in Legacy Media were sick and twisted folks, but this perverse behavior is absolutely demented. When people like this are part of the mainstream media, no wonder they actively attempt to cover up for the reveal of Hunter Biden’s scandalous laptop and abhorrent reports of sexual abuse against the Democratic Presidential Nominee and his deranged son:
•Hunter Biden and the disturbing videos of him, which have been handed over to the Delaware police, showing illegal activity with underage children. Or media cover-up of texts referring to Hunter’s girlfriend/brother’s widow, Hallie between Hunter and his father Joe Biden, about repulsive activity such as naked facetiming with his 14-year-old niece (daughter of his dead brother, Beau) while he smoked crack. The laptop has been verified and no one in the Biden family has directly denied the legitimacy of the laptop. Hunter’s lawyer attempted to retrieve the laptop after it was leaked to the NY Post by Rudy Giuliani.
•Joe Biden and how his 39-year-old daughter Ashley’s diary has been handed over to National File. Molestation is revealed in the diary when she writes of inappropriateness from her father during her childhood, and the sex and substance addictions the abuse induced. National File also knows the reported precise location of the physical diary, and has been told by a whistleblower that there exists an audio recording of Ashley Biden admitting this is her diary
What is #MeToobin?
According to The Sun, #MeToobin is a reactionary hashtag created after Vice broke the story about the CNN analyst’s “raunchy faux pas”. It began trending on social media within hours of the incident becoming public. The news prompted social media users to share their own experiences with sexual harassment on Zoom and in the workplace, and criticize Toobin’s behavior. Many deemed his actions a fireable offense while others have used it to make fun of the situation.
Bizpacreview reported that Joy Behar actually sympathized with Toobin saying that she could relate because it could have happened to her. They wrote, “given Toobin’s rich history of Trump bashing, it was painful for co-host Joy Behar to denounce him, but she told the legal analyst to get a therapist. But before she offered that advice, Behar left viewers with a visual image that was as ghastly as the idea of seeing Toobin ‘in the act.’
It really makes you wonder how many teachers, professors, doctors, and other professionals perform lewd acts like this while they are supposed to be doing their jobs, and the thought of it is disgusting.
