Kavanaugh supporters drink beer to celebrate his confirmation

Supporters of Brett Kavanaugh are drinking beer to celebrate his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Shortly after the Senate confirmed President Trump’s embattled Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh supporters took to Twitter to share photos of themselves toasting the judge with a beer.

{mosads}The “Beers for Brett” hashtag appears to be a reference to Kavanaugh’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, during which he repeatedly stated his fondness for beer.

“Yes, we drank beer,” Kavanaugh said during his testimony. “My friends and I, the boys and girls. Yes, we drank beer. I liked beer. I still like beer. We drank beer.”

“We drank beer and I said sometimes — sometimes — probably had too many beers and sometimes other people had too many beers. We drink beer. We liked beer,” he later added.

Kavanaugh’s drinking habits in high school and college were the subject of various questions during his testimony in response to allegations of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford.

“Toasted our new #SCOTUS #JusticeKavanaugh with #BeersForBrett this afternoon,” one user tweeted. “May he live and serve our great nation for many years to come.”

“A toast to our newest Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh,” another person wrote, while urging other Kavanaugh supporters to share their own posts. 

And other Kavanaugh supporters just shared photos of their beers to celebrate the judge’s success.

Kavanaugh clashed with several senators as he was questioned about his drinking habits in relation to allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him by three women, each of which he has strongly denied.

Kavanaugh was sworn in as an associate justice to the Supreme Court in a private ceremony Saturday after the Senate confirmed him in a 50-48 vote.
