    Conservatives posted plenty of barbs on Twitter in reaction to the news that CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin was leaving the network.

    Toobin announced his decision to leave the network Friday after working for the network for 20 years. Toobin was previously at the center of significant controversy in 2020 when he was fired from the New Yorker and took a leave of absence from CNN after exposing himself during a Zoom video conference. Toobin was later welcomed back to the network.

    Toobin made the announcement in a letter to colleagues Friday. "I wanted to let you know that after twenty years I've decided to leave CNN after my vacation," Toobin said in the letter, via Variety. "It was great to spend my last day on air, like so many before, with my pals at [The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer], [Anderson Cooper 360] and Don Lemon Tonight. It's been a privilege (and fun) being your colleague. The work of CNN is enormously important, and I know you'll continue doing it with the same passion and intelligence as always."

    He made the announcement public in a tweet Friday afternoon. "Friends, I've decided that, after 20 years, I'm leaving @cnn after my vacation," Toobin tweeted. "Was great to spend my last day on air with pals Wolf, Anderson and Don. Love all my former colleagues. Watch for my next book, about the Oklahoma City bombing, coming in 2023 from [Simon and Schuster]."

    Variety noted that while it was not known whether his contract expired with CNN, Toobin's exit appeared to be a mutual agreement. "We are grateful for Jeffrey's contributions to the network over the years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors," CNN said in a statement, via Variety.

    Conservatives on Twitter reacted to Toobin's announcement, ruthlessly mocking him over the Zoom incident.

    "He's quitting to spend more time with himself," podcaster Noam Blum responded.

    "Apparently, among the other things that he has his hands on, he'll have his hands on plenty of time," conservative activist Ned Ryun tweeted.

    "Jeffrey Toobin is leaving CNN to spend some more time with himself," journalist Stephen L. Miller replied.

    "And sometimes he really shows his love for his colleagues," New York Post writer Kelly Jane Torrance tweeted.

    "Toob out," wrote Washington Free Beacon investigative reporter Chuck Ross.

    "You're more of a solo act anyway," journalist Ryan Girdusky responded.

    "He finished," NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck joked.

    "'One last show for the road' (sends Zoom link to colleagues)," wrote one Twitter user.

    "I've got to hand it to him, a vacation is the perfect happy ending, I guess he finally thought it was time to beat it," another user chimed in.

    Toobin was suspended in October of 2020 after he was reportedly caught masturbating during an election simulation with prominent members of the New Yorker. Toobin said he thought he had shut off his video feed and could not be seen.

    "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers," Toobin said in a statement to Vice at the time. He was fired from his post at the New Yorker, but returned to CNN in January 2021.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
