Brett Kavanaugh, "I Like Beer": Twitter Reactions and Memes

Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had a tense exchange about drinking during Thursday's hearing

Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had a tense exchange about drinking during Thursday's hearing

Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) if she ever "blacked out" while drinking. Kavanaugh fired back, "Have you?"

- In an emotional day of testimony, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford described the alleged sexual assault involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying she was "100 percent certain" he assaulted her. Kavanaugh in his testimony later in the day said he was "100 percent certain" the assault never happened.

Klobuchar: Could you answer the question?

"I started my last colliloquy by saying to Senator Klobuchar how much I respect her and what she said at the last hearing". Klobuchar added later that she doesn't like "living in an evidence-free zone", without testimony from contemporaries of Kavanaugh and Ford. Klobuchar joins "CBS This Morning" from Washington to discuss the judge's temperament and the Republican senators' strategy. I don't know - have you?

"What are you hiding?" she asked.

Merkley: Ford receiving 'worse treatment than Anita Hill got'
In hearings that lasted for three days, the committee heard testimony from more than a dozen outside witnesses. Ford accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her at a high school party in 1982.

Shah insisted that Kavanaugh had said the legal drinking age was 18 because it "allowed friends to legally purchase beer, and for him to drink at high school parties", the AP reported. During the interview period, when Kavanaugh was asked about his drinking habits, he said, "I drank beer with my friends". Klobuchar's father is an alcoholic. Now, her line of inquiry will likely be picked up by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which the Judiciary Committee asked to investigate Ford's claims in a surprising move on Friday.

"What I think Sen".

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.

"We have someone who made a credible claim", Klobuchar said. "It was probably the most telling moment of the whole proceeding", he said, "because in that moment, you saw the belligerence and the nastiness of a person who one could then easily imagine having participated in some of the incidents he's accused of having committed".

The Senate Judiciary Committee is slated to vote on Kavanaugh at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
