Ford accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her when the two were in high school.

Hollywood heavyweight Matt Damon portrays an angry Kavanaugh giving an animated speech, opening with: "Let me tell you this".

It was little surprise "SNL" addressed the day-long Thursday hearing in which both Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified on Capitol Hill.

Damon then spoofed the workings of the actual Kavanaugh hearing, such as consistently referring to his calendar from the 1980s to prove his innocence, repeating that he "likes beer", and recalling his rag-tag gang of pals from the time.

He did take it to 15 "real quick" as he shouted about the conspiracy attacking him and guzzled water.

"The monsters on this committee make me want to puke, and not from beer", he added.

"I got these calendars", he said weepily, "these attractive, creepy calendars".

Getting visibly emotional, he pulled up his old "beautiful, creepy" calendars as "evidence" and claimed no one cared about evidence but just wanted to humiliate him in front of his wife, his parents and "Alyssa frigging Milano" - at which point, a cutout of Milano crept up behind him at the desk.

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

"Well guess what, I'm not backing down, you sons of bitches".

The sketch also mocked the Senate Judiciary Committee's treatment of sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was played by Aidy Bryant. Lindsey Graham to her long line of characters.

"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!" Asked if he was ready to proceed with questions, he said, "I will not dignify this hearing with words".
