"Saturday Night Live" began its 44th season premiere with a cold open tackling last week's Ford-Kavanaugh hearing - but focused exclusively on the Kavanaugh portion, with a guest appearance by Matt Damon as the Supreme Court nominee. Now, mocking Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Saturday Night Live kicked-off their new season in a recreation of his contentious testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The senators featured in the sketch were Chuck Grassley (Alex Moffat), Dianne Feinstein (Cecily Strong), Orrin Hatch (Beck Bennett), John Kennedy (Kyle Mooney), Sheldon Whitehouse (Pete Davidson), Cory Booker (Chris Redd), Amy Klobuchar (alum Rachel Dratch), and Lindsay Graham (a ideal Kate McKinnon).
Of course, everyone took shots at Kavanaugh's penchant for beer, his infamous calendar and his animated emotional state. "Let me tell you this, I'm going to start at an 11 then I'm going to take it to a 15 real quick!"
Under questioning, Damon's Kavanaugh blamed the "political con job" against him on the Clintons, George Soros, Kathy Griffin and "Mr. Ronan Sinatra".
And if Damon's Kavanaugh impressions were not enough for people to love the sketch, it also featured Kate McKinnon as Lindsey Graham.
"I'm a keg half-full kind of guy", Kavanaugh said, referring to his optimistic view of the past. "And meanwhile, I've got these calendars".
The variety show even brought back "SNL" cast member Rachel Dratch to play Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
"I don't know the meaning of the word stop", he said in another line.
Damon's Kavanugh then raged: "You think I'm angry, you're damn right I am".
Asked if he drank beer in school, he says, "Look I like beer okay?" "I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you've ever seen", declared Damon's Kavanaugh as he emotionally recounted his days lifting weights with his friends PJ, Squee, and "Donkey Dong Doug".

But Yale Law School spokeswoman Janet Conroy told the Yale Daily News the press release was not an endorsement of the nomination. In Washington DC, a bus carried protesters to the Supreme Court and Senate buildings to demonstrate.
That quintet gave the kind of performance that led to them being replaced; little errors leading to goals for the opposition. Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola said Hazard was one of the best players in the world in the aftermath of the match.
As a manager, if you're sat there, you're relying on your players. "We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves". It is believed an Instagram post uploaded by Pogba during the reverse against the Rams was the reason for Mourinho's annoyance.
