Matt Damon plays petulant Brett Kavanaugh in 'SNL' season premiere

Saturday Night Live Kavanaugh  Damon

Saturday Night Live has used its cold open to rehash the recent United States senate hearings with Supreme Court nomimee Brett Kavanaugh. Chuck Grassely (R-IA) as having made up his mind before the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - "I already voted yes for Kavanaugh before she said a word" - though most of the committee's Democrats had in fact chose to vote against Kavanaugh long before Ford's allegations arose, and several Republicans pointedly kept an open mind.

"I'm going to start at an eleven".

"Look I like beer OK?' he continues".

Claiming he's usually a "keg is half-full" kind of optimist, he said that what he has recently seen from the "monsters on this committee makes me want to puke - and not from beer".

The actors come close to duplicating the tense exchange that took place during Thursday's hearing - as the judge threw back his own question about whether Lobuchar herself had ever blacked out after drinking.

Twitterati including celebrities were thrilled to see the SNL sketch and remarked how uncannily Damon nailed the Kavanaugh impression.

"Dr. Ford has no evidence, none".

Kavanaugh accusations 'all false to me,' but I could change my mind
And he said he may delay their highly anticipated Thursday meeting to avoid distracting from the Kavanaugh hearing. Trump also applauded his work in North Korea and highlighted his positive relationship with dictator Kim Jong Un.

He did take it to 15 "real quick" as he shouted about the conspiracy attacking him and guzzled water. Meanwhile, I've got these.

The sketch also featured SNL alumna Rachel Dratch as Democratic senator Amy Klobuchar, as well as regular cast members Alex Moffat as Sen. "I don't know the meaning of the word "stop"!"

"Well guess what? I'm not backin" down, you sons of (expletives).

Tonight's SNL season 44 premiere kicked off with a surprisingly faithful re-enactment of Brett Kavanaugh's Senate testimony.

"Well that's impossible because I didn't have sex for many, many, many years", Damon said.

"Hi, I have about 4,000 loose papers on this weird little baby desk they set up for me here", Bryant's prosecutor said.

Damon's Kavanugh then raged: "You think I'm angry, you're damn right I am".
