Matt Damon takes on Brett Kavanaugh in SNL’s season opener

"We've heard from the alleged victim, but now it's time to hear from the hero, Judge Brett Kavanaugh", introduced Senator Chuck Grassley, played by cast member Alex Moffat.

"I'm a keg-is-half-full kinda guy", Matt-Damon-as-Brett-Kavanaugh says angrily.

Kavanaugh appeared angry and frustrated when he faced the senate's questions, saying the accusations against him were politically motivated.

"I have been waiting to yell and shake my finger and get red as a tomato for 15 minutes", said McKinnon as Graham.

Damon first poked fun at Kavanaugh's aggressive opening statements, joking that he wrote his speech "last night, while screaming into an empty bag of Doritos".

"I'm not backing down, you sons of bitches!" he shouts.

"I will just show you one expression that I call the Booker look", he said before pursing his lips and shaking his head.

Damon's Kavanaugh went on to talk about the "con job" orchestrated by people like the Clintons, Kathy Griffin and "Mr. Ronan Sinatra". "These lovely, creepy calendars", he added, citing pages that were published in the USA Today showing his schedule from 1982. "You mean, was I cool? I don't know the meaning of the word stop", he continued. 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.

The twist? Kavanaugh was played by Matt Damon. "Did you ever blackout?" Aidy Bryant also gave a great performance as the embattled prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who is repeatedly cut off by the men in the senate, saying "I can not believe I flew here on Southwest for this".

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

"I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you've ever seen".
