“Saturday Night Live” kicked off its 44th season by offering its take on the divisive Senate Judiciary hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford.
Saturday’s premiere of the NBC sketch comedy show used Kavanaugh’s portion of Thursday’s hearing as fodder for its cold open — complete with a cardboard cutout of hearing attendee Alyssa Milano and mock renderings of Kavanaugh’s ”beautiful, creepy calendars.”
The sketch featured Matt Damon as Kavanaugh, while “SNL” alum Rachel Dratch portrayed Sen. Amy Klobuchar. Cast member Aidy Bryant appeared as attorney Rachel Mitchell, while Cecily Strong and Alex Moffat played Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Grassley. And adding yet another impression to her roster, Kate McKinnon channeled the fury of Sen. Lindsey Graham.
