Kavanaugh Apologizes for Turning Sen. Klobuchar’s Question About His Drinking Back on Her

Watch Brett Kavanaugh's full opening statement

Kavanaugh: No. I remember what happened and I think you've probably had beers, Senator? "I still like beer". Nearly everyone did. Sometimes I had too many beers.

It got even stickier from there. After that, Kavanaugh's nomination would head to the Senate floor for a series of votes.

He parsed the difference between "passing out" and "going to sleep" after drinking. That, however, did not apply to Kavanaugh: He didn't turn 18 until the following February.

Journalist Craig Melvin also appreciated Kavanaugh's love for beer and tweeted, "One major takeaway so far?" "My friends and I, the boys and girls". "But we have heard, not under oath, your college roommate say that you did drink frequently". Sometimes others did. I like beer.

"I have no drinking problem, judge", Klobuchar said.

"I liked beer", he said.

Earlier this month, Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California, had alleged that Kavanaugh had assaulted her during a party in the 1980s when they were both in high school. Yes, we drank beer, I like beer, I still like beer, we drank beer.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has repeatedly said that he was legally allowed to consume beer as a prep school senior in Maryland. "I never committed sexual assault".

In one exchange, Democratic Sen.

Klobuchar pointed the finger at her Republican colleagues, whom she accused of trying to cover for Kavanaugh without a serious investigation of the charges. This is a tough process. "I'm sorry about that".

Klobuchar followed this line of inquiry and prefaced it by noting that her father, the longtime Star Tribune journalist Jim Klobuchar, was a longtime abuser of alcohol. "I would like to add that when you have a parent that's alcoholic you're pretty careful about drinking".

As Klobuchar's remarks indicate, though, Kavanaugh didn't really answer the question. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) about the definition of the term "ralph". "I don't know", Kavanaugh said.

Echoing what some have argued, Berman said that Kavanaugh's surreal response revealed more about who he is than anything he might have said in response to Klobuchar's question.

You're asking about blackout.

In total, Kavanaugh mentioned "beer" 29 times.

After tempers cooled, Kavanaugh came back and apologized.

Judge published a 1997 book called "Wasted: Tales of Gen X Drunk", in which he makes reference to an apparently fictionalized friend, "Bart O'Kavanaugh", who "vomited in a auto after a party".
