Stephen Colbert's show rips Kavanaugh with mock ad for beer

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” released a fake "Kavanaugh Beer" beverage ad to mock Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The 45-second spot begins with Kavanaugh’s comments late last month during the hearing on sexual assault allegations from his days in high school in the 1980s. Kavanaugh admitted that he often drank beer in high school and college.

“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.

The "Late Show's" fake beer ad jabbed Kavanaugh over his comments.

“Kavanaugh Beer is full-bodied for great drinkability and supreme judge-ability,” the ad says. “It’s the perfect beer for the judge who doesn’t want to be judged.”

The ad says the beer is “no calories” and “no answers.”

“Warning: Kavanaugh Beer will give you a hangover that lasts a lifetime appointment,” the ad says.

Kavanaugh's drinking habits in high school and college were the subject of various questions by Democrats on the Judiciary Committee during his testimony last month.

The nominee clashed with several senators and asked them their own drink preferences while facing questions about allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him by three women. 

Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to publicly accuse Kavanaugh of sexual assault, testified before the Senate panel hours before Kavanaugh, offering gripping testimony accusing Kavanaugh of drunkenly pinning her to a bed and groping her during a high school party in the summer of 1982 when both were in high school.

Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations in his subsequent testimony, and denied allegations from two other women who accused him of misconduct stemming from his days in high school and college.

Kavanaugh is expected to be confirmed in a final vote on Saturday.
