Adjust Comment Print

Damon appeared as Kavanaugh in a hearing where he faced questions from actors playing a range of key political figures in the saga, including Republican Lindsay Graham and Democrat Diane Feinstein.

Surprising, however, was the appearance of Matt Damon as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who started things off by making fun of Kavanaugh's aggressive opening statements.

"I wrote it last night while screaming into an empty bag of Doritos".

"I'm not backing down, you sons of bitches", Damon yelled at the committee, pointedly adding, "I don't know the meaning of the word 'stop'".

"I'm a keg-is-half-full kind of guy", the Kavanaugh character said at one point.

He discounted the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh held her down on a bed and groped her during a high school party in 1982. He, on the other hand, has calendars. None. Meanwhile, I've got these.

The show mocks Kavanaugh's emotions when talking about his own calendar, as well has his outburts of anger. Aidy Bryant played prosecutor Rachel Mitchell and was constantly cut off by the committee.

The cold open ended with Damon's Kavanaugh wrapping up his questioning. "I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you have ever seen and everyone can relate to that". It's a controversial, soul-draining story for everyone...except the writing staff of Saturday Night Live, who must be counting every blessing available to be returning to TV during a time so depressingly rich in material.
