Jeffrey Toobin: "She was WAYYYY outside those rules...."

Jeffrey Toobin is a former student of the notorious Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz. It's hardly a surprise, then, that he is also a bloody-minded defender of illegal Israeli settlements and IDF depradations in the Occupied Territories and Gaza. |
As well as occasionally providing an affable but shallow talking head and engaging in (always losing) arguments with the likes of Norman Finkelstein, Toobin also has got himself a gig as "CNN's legal analyst". It's in his "CNN legal analyst" role that we see him in the following clip, slithering on at the 1:44 mark to deliver his expert opinion: "She was WAYYYY outside those rules, and she has to live with the consequences."
No doubt Toobin would have found a way to support this young woman if she'd done something that was far less grievous than "flipping the bird" at a judge. Like harassing, humiliating, or shooting a defenceless Palestinian.
