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

"Saturday Night Live" kicked off its 44th season with a cold open mocking the Brett Kavanaugh Senate Judiciary Committee hearing from earlier in the week.

Kavanaugh was called before the Senate to testify this week in addition to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual and physical assault stemming from an alleged incident in the 1980s, when they were allegedly at a party during their high school years. Damon guzzled water, contorted his face and had full-on agita.

The sketch also featured Kate McKinnon as Senator Lindsay Graham, who started by saying.

Of course, everyone took shots at Kavanaugh's penchant for beer, his infamous calendar and his animated emotional state.

Damon's proceeds to angrily yells, "I'm gonna start at an 11, I'ma take it to about a 15 real quick", before he continues, "First of all I showed this speech to nearly no one - not my family, not my friends, not even P.J. or Tobin, or Squee".

"First of all, I showed this speech to nearly no one", Damon as Kavanaugh declared in the 13-minute cold open. "I'm gonna take it to about a 15 real quick". "And meanwhile, I've got these calendars. And I'm not backin" down you sons of bitches - I don't know the meaning of the word "Stop'".

That's the first of many, many mentions of beer.

"I'm usually an optimist", Damon sneered.

The variety show even brought back "SNL" cast member Rachel Dratch to play Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar. Aidy Bryant played prosecutor Rachel Mitchell and was constantly cut off by the committee. Lindsey Graham, and Cecily Strong as Sen.

When asked if he drank so much he blacked out, he stammered for a few seconds before claiming he had just blacked out for a second right then.

"But if you think I'm angry now you just wait until I get on that Supreme Court - because then you're all going to pay!"
