About Damon's 'SNL' Skit
"I'm going to start at an 11. I'm going to take it to about a 15 real quick. First of all I showed this speech to almost no one — not my family, not my friends ... This is my speech," he started.
He added that although there are others like it, it was his. Damon's Kavanaugh also mentioned that he wrote it last night while he was shouting at an empty bag of chips.
Then he talked about how the issue was done by people such as George Soros, the Clintons, and Kathy Griffin. He went on to say that he is a man who always looks at the keg half full because he is an optimist.
Accusations Against Kavanaugh
The Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept. 27 to address allegations of sexual abuse reported by Christine Blasey Ford.
Ford claimed that Kavanaugh did it when she was in high school. Kavanaugh has denied the accusations. However, the White House has delayed a confirmation vote to make way for an investigation by the FBI.
"All I did was drink a lot and not think about having sex at all. I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you have ever seen and everyone can relate to that," Damon's character replied when asked about his yearbook and wrong definitions of sexual terms.
The sketch ended by asking Damon's Kavanaugh if he has the right temperament to be part of the Supreme Court. He answered that he graduated from Yale and worked so hard to get to where he is today.
He went on to say that he did not only bust his buns, but he also lifted weights. Then he proceeded with naming his friends who have shown their support for him.
Mimicking the real scene of Kavanaugh's actioned while he was testifying, he gulped water and raged at the committee. This is not the only time in the comedy sketch show when Kavanaugh's hearing was featured. Colin Jost and Michael Che also discussed the hearing during their segment, "Weekend Update."
