CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin appeared on air on Thursday for the first time since he exposed himself during a Zoom video call with former colleagues from the New Yorker.

Although the New Yorker fired Toobin after the October incident, in which he masturbated while accidentally leaving the camera on during the call, Toobin was not fired from CNN and took a leave of absence for several months. Toobin addressed the fallout from the incident in an interview with CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota.

@JeffreyToobin says he was told that The New Yorker reviewed his whole career and didn’t find any other instances of misconduct. He adds that he feels firing him was “excessive punishment.”

“To quote Jay Leno, what the hell were you thinking?” Camerota asked.

“Well, obviously I wasn’t thinking very well or very much,” Toobin responded. “Now, that is not a defense. This was deeply moronic and indefensible.”
