Whoopi Goldberg tried to take the Jeffrey Toobin scandal somewhat seriously on The View today, but Sara Haines just could not stop laughing about the absurdity of the whole situation of a legal analyst accidentally masturbating on a Zoom call.
"I usually give women a lot of credit for multitasking, but this is a gearswitch I could leave to only a man," she said, struggling to keep her composure, especially after Joy Behar started laughing, too. "This was during an election simulation, which is the most - I'm sorry, I'm sorry - the most unsexy thing I've ever heard of, and I'm not going to be able to unsee this."
Behar, for her part, was sympathetic, and appreciative that Toobin gave them something to talk about besides Trump and the pandemic. "I could do ten jokes here, but I'm not going to. I feel sorry for the guy, in a way," she said.
Later, though, when answering the question of whether Toobin can recover from this, Behar did toss out a one-liner that broke Haines up all over again. "He might recover from sexual addiction, but he'd be blind in the process. That's a funny joke."
