JEFFREY Toobin has returned to work as a CNN commentator after the awkward masturbation scandal.
Toobin attended a meeting on October 15, 2020, about a presidential election podcast for WNYC and The New Yorker when he allegedly began touching his penis and blowing air kisses to someone, his colleagues said.
Toobin, 60, was swiftly fired from the publication and has been laying low since after shocking his colleagues – but he reappeared on the airwaves today.
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked him “what the hell were you thinking” during his first TV appearance since the scandal broke last year.
“Well, obviously, I wasn’t thinking very well or very much, and it was something that was inexplicable to me,” he said.
“I think one point – I wouldn’t exactly say in my defense, because nothing is really in my defense. I didn’t think I was on the call. I didn’t think other people could see me,” he said.
“You thought that you had turned off your camera?” Camerota pressed him in the interview.
The New York Times previously reported how he allegedly angled the computer camera, touched himself, and blew kisses at someone who wasn’t one of his coworkers.
