SNL Cold Open: Matt Damon's Delivers Epic Take On Brett Kavanaugh

Epic cold open on SNL last night as Oscar winner Matt Damon delivered a spot on Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Asking the questions were Senators Chuck Grassley (Alex Moffat), Dianne Feinstein (Cecily Strong), Amy Klobuchar (Rachel Dratch), Thom Tillis (Mikey Day), Cory Booker (Chris Redd), John Kennedy (Kyle Mooney), Sheldon Whitehouse (Pete Davidson), Lindsey Graham (Kate McKinnon) and prosecutor Rachel Mitchell (Aidy Bryant).

So many great lines here, I don't want to say too much. But you will definitely find a lot to laugh at here.

Damon is on fire right out of the gate with his opening statement.

“Let me tell you this,” he said. “I’m going to start at an 11. I’m going to take it to about a 15 real quick. First of all I showed this speech to almost no one — not my family, not my friends. … This is my speech. There are others like it, but this is mine. I wrote it myself last night while screaming into an empty bag of Doritos.”

Former SNL-er Rachel Dratch was dead on as Klobuchar inquiring about Kavanaugh's drinking habits in school.

Asked if he drank too much, Damon’s Kavanaugh replied: “Look, I like beer. O.K.? I like beer. Boys like beer. Girls like beer. I like beer. I like beer.”

Dratch pressed on, asking, “Did you ever drink too many beers?”

And in total prep school perfection, Damon's Kavanaugh replied, “You mean was I cool? Yeah.”

And then there was Kate McKinnon's take on Sen. Lindsey Graham's now-infamous tirade. “I know I’m supposed to shut up because I’m a single white male, 5’10” uncut. But I will not shut up because this is a bunch of crap,” he said.
