Brett Kavanaugh can’t stop shouting ‘I like beer’ at his hearing today

Brett Kavanaugh can’t stop shouting ‘I like beer’ at his hearing today

In fact, he was never legal in high school because the state's drinking age increased to 21 at the end of his junior year, while he was still 17.

Jerry Brown suggested Friday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's defense of his drinking habits raised doubts about his entire denial of a sexual assault allegation.

In a Fox News interview on Monday, Kavanaugh said, "Yes, there were parties".

Those who were 18 or older at the time were "grandfathered" in, so they could continue to drink legally. "And yes, the seniors were legal and had beer there".

Speaking briefly to reporters after an event for Native Americans at the Capitol in Sacramento, Brown called Thursday's hearing before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee a "step toward an increasingly polarized America". "And in your written testimony, you said sometimes you had too many drinks". Yes, we drank beer. Sometimes others did. I like beer. The drinking age as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal.

The White House argued Friday that Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking was not meant to be misleading, but provided "context" about how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer.

"Still, the problem for me is, he really didn't answer the question about if there have been incidences where he didn't partially remember what happened".

"I liked beer", he said.

Canada's race against time with US to reach NAFTA deal
The two nations are now working to avoid a fight that could jeopardize $500 billion in annual trade, according to the tweet. That's also the administration's self-imposed deadline for Canada to agree to new terms in the trade deal.

"For me, it is not that people don't drink in high school, it's, is he telling the truth?" she said. In one of the more tense exchanges, he asked Sen.

During the hearing, Klobuchar had said she understands alcohol abuse, as her father is an alcoholic, and asked Kavanaugh if he'd ever blacked out while drinking. Was there ever a time when you drank so much you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before?

Klobuchar: Could you answer the question? "So, that's not happened, is that your answer?"

"Just in case you are not aware...." one person wrote", Brett Kavanaugh likes beer".

Klobuchar said she appreciates hearing that, adding again that people with parents who are alcoholics are careful about drinking.

Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Kavanaugh responded. He went on to apologize later on. Alcoholic consumption by Kavanaugh also would have been illegal during the notorious Beach Week, an annual trip to the Eastern Shore that involved heavy drinking, according to numerous eyewitness accounts.

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.
