Matt Damon's snivelling SNL take on Brett Kavanaugh is gas

Matt Damon swooped in to portray Judge Brett Kavanaugh last night during the cold open, and he turned the Supreme Court nominee's testimony into one-liners like "I like beer".

After the Senate Judiciary Committee formally requested the White House instruct the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct a supplemental background probe of "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh, Trump gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation "free rein" to investigate.

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

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

"This is my speech".

Addressing the panel of senators played by the show's cast members, Damon said he wrote the opening speech by himself "while screaming into an empty bag of Doritos".

The beer references are peppered through the sketch - including "I'm usually an optimist". In some parts of the sketch, Damon's Kavanaugh did not have to stray far from the transcript of Thursday's actual questioning.

Asked if he ever blacked out from drinking, he fired back, "I don't know, did you? Huh? Huh?"

"Dr. Ford has no evidence - none", he insisted.

"I've got these calendars". They include Che talking about Bill Cosby, Leslie Jones coming out as Serena Williams, Kate McKinnon as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, more Kavanaugh talk and Pete Davidson's summer. A cardboard cut-out of Alyssa Milano played Alyssa Milano.

Asked if he drank beer in school, he says, "Look I like beer okay?" "I don't know the meaning of the word 'stop'".

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

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

Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) didn't have a question, just a comment: "I'd just like to say the Democrats have behaved like cowards".

Damon's Kavanugh then raged: "You think I'm angry, you're damn right I am. I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you have ever seen and everyone can relate to that".
