Has Brett Kavanaugh been honest about his alcohol consumption? | Fact Checker

-Questions about
Judge Kavanaugh. First, there are now concerns
that he may have lied or mischaracterized
his drinking while testifying. If they find that he did,
do you think that bars him from being your Supreme
Court nominee? -Well, I’ve watched —
I’ve watched him. I was surprised at how vocal
he was about the fact that he likes beer. But I can tell you,
I watched that hearing, and I watched a man saying
that he did have difficulty as a young man with drinking. -My friends and I
sometimes got together and had parties on weekends. The drinking age was 18
in Maryland for most of my time
in high school and was 18 in D.
C. for all of my time
in high school. I drank beer with my friends. Almost everyone did. Sometimes I had too many beers. Sometimes others did. I liked beer. I still like beer. But I did not drink beer
to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually
assaulted anyone. -Explosive allegations
of sexual assault brought against Supreme Court
nominee Brett Kavanaugh — -Another allegation of sexual misconduct surfaces —
-Thank you very much. -But your old roommate said
he never saw him black out and he was with him
when he got home at night and saw him
when he woke up. Your response to that? -I unfortunately believe that my
probably now ex-friend is lying. -Well, I’ve known Brett since
the very beginning of freshman year. He drank heavily. He was a partier. He liked to do beer bongs. He played drinking games. He was a sloppy drunk. -But did you see Brett Kavanaugh
drink to excess in high school? -We drank a high volume, but I never saw him
stumbling drunk. I never knew him
to forget anything. -He was a big partier,
often drank to excess. -There were certainly many times
when he could not remember what was going on. -Okay, so drinking is one thing, but the concern
is about truthfulness, and in your written testimony, you said sometimes
you had too many drinks. Was there ever a time
when you drank so much that you couldn’t remember
what happened or part of what happened
the night before? -No — No,
I remember what happened, and I think you’ve probably
had beers, Senator, and so — -So. you’re saying there’s never been
a case where you drank so much that you didn’t remember
what happened the night before or part of what happened. -It’s — you’re asking about,
you know, blackout. I don’t know.
Have you?

  1. egoistic entitled jock + alcohol = guilty as charged. we've all met this guy before. almost every school and every work place has had one. he's that guy.

  2. Lying should be good enough to disqualify him…..the sexual assault allegations especially from College and HS …it will be hard to prove bec you expect that they will deny it

  3. As someone who's living in Germany, the first question that came to my mind was:
    'About what kind of beer we are talking here?'
    I'm sure the answer to this question should expose his ability to judge.

  4. what is even less enjoyable than watching trump speaking from a podium? trump speaking from a podium while steve mnuchin
    with his impossible grin stands behind him. brrrrrr.

  5. Funky Like A Monkey

    Notice how he confidently denies ever blacking out, but when asked if excessive drinking ever prevented him from fully recollecting the night before (meaning he could have committed sexual assault and not remembered it without fully blacking out), the confident denial vanishes, and is replaced by evasion tactics…like turning the question on the questioner to avoid answering. "Have you?" = GUILT.

  6. Let’s see he likes beer and mite of had a bar fight that’s Proof for rape! That just shows he is a real person! Now I like him even more!! We need real people on the Supreme Court!! Not people that live in Lol lol land!

  7. One crying in the wilderness

    Obama drinked beer right there on the tv screen did the dem's ever say he was unfit to serve because he drinks beer? NO THEY DID NOT,

  8. Go find Christine Fords yearbook which she conveniently attempted to wipe from the internet.
    She's a drunken drug riddled skank!!

  9. Washington Post really reaching. Top Yale student in academics while being a jock. Serves on the 2nd highest court in the U.S.. He is going to get in, and if he doesn't that's a shame you can be guilty with no evidence what so ever. I hope he gets Drunk after he gets on the supreme court.

  10. Classic Shady Democrat tactics. Accuse them of one thing you know isn't true and then hope he slips up in any sort of area whatsoever. O he admitted to drinking, let's make him look like a bad guy… Because the majority of America can't relate to liking beer. LOL stupid stupid Democrats.

  11. Its getting more difficult everyday to tell the difference between male and female Democrats.
    Seems the females are the more masculine of the two.

  12. The Democrats political hitjobs and incessant whining are enough to drive me to drink. And I'm an alcoholic who quit 10 years ago. I wonder if I can sue Feinstein, Booker and all the other democrats for making me drink again. Hmmmm.

  13. What I learned from Brett : He's partisan, emotional, a drunk, a liar and a grudge holder.
    Great people you got there, america. 👏

  14. Alcohol really? How about we start questioning ford on how her accusations don't add up and that multiple witnesses said this never happened, On why the democrats with held this information for a month or how professionals all agreed that miss fords opening statement was full of holes and forced attempts of emotion, a.k.a faking it.

  15. tRumpTards are on some Other sh!t.
    Its Real Simple people….
    Its NOT the Drinking. Its The FACT that hes Lyin about it….HOW hes Lyin about it…and WHY?

    If tRumpubliTards were Able to pull there heads from their A$$es they Might be able to see that.
    Cultists will be Cultists.

  16. Theres a lot of questions about WaPo's handling of the Blasey Ford false sexual assault claims.
    Multiple sources are saying that WaPo will be criminally charged.
    Can't wait!!

  17. Odumbo smoked crack cocaine and marijuana throughout high school….but the WaPo and its filth employees had no problem with him being president. In fact they thought that made him "Woke"

  18. Let's look past the sexual assault charges… do u people want an alcoholic on one of the highest courts in america.. an alcoholic with anger issues?

  19. The guy is such a jerk and liar. And a judge should know to answer the questions. I know that in court if a judge asked you a question and you turned around and asked him a question he would not be pleased with it at all. The Senators ask the questions. The witness is supposed to answer the questions

  20. Ginsberg passed out during obamas 2015 SOTU address from drinking too much, I don't recall leftist being concerned at all about that. Hypocrisy is all democrats deal in.

  21. Search for the truth

    Watching mcgann's face in these hearings is more interesting. Kavanaugh is so obviously lying that watching his homely continence is a bore. McGann is pulling his strings. That's interesting to see, his reactions to the ludicrous garbage he has advised Kavanaugh to sell.

  22. I heard special K
    make evasive, misleading answers to questions about his drinking, that he was a virgin, studied hard, his calendars & yearbook, etc during his testimony under oath on Thursday.

    Thus I believe that he’s more likely to lie about more important matters.
    That is unacceptable.

    Right now K is like a cornered animal, fighting for his reputation.
    We saw his personality shift during Thursday’s testimony.
    He is very partisan, aggressive, confrontational.
    Special K does not have the temperament to sit on the Court.

  23. Not defending kavanaugh. Nor should this comment be linked to sexual misconduct allegations againt BK. But isnt experimenting with alcohol and maybe overdoing it once or twice normal for any 18ish kid?

  24. The Washington Post supports the idea that uncorroborated accusations are sufficient to destroy a man and derail the process. I came here because Youtube showed me an ad. I came here specifically to waste your ad money.

    You are actually working to weaponize uncorroborated accusations against innocent men and women which is detrimental to the fairness necessary for a functioning society.

    Tell your owner Bezos that I'll never buy another product from Amazon. I spend a lot of money, and now I'd rather buy local or not at all. Whatever I need, I don't need it so bad as to help him continue destroying this country.

  25. I watched a Man testify, one who I could care whether he was confirmed or not, simply show through his demeanor that he was being deceptive. A video of Kavanaughs Testimony could be used in any CIA Training 101 Class "How To Spot Deception"

  26. You'd think that the dems would be too embarrassed to pursue Kavanaugh after Ford was a major league fail, but no, they doubled down, started in on his temperament and his private consumption of a totally legal substance. Guess it just goes to show how desperate the Left is in stopping an Trump pick. They have absolutely no shame. Their desperation removes all commonsensical boundaries. Wow, just wow!

  27. He lied about being 18 when drinking in high school. He turned 18 Feb 1983, Maryland raised the drinking age limit to 21 in 1982. So anytime he drank in Maryland up until Feb. 1986 he did so illegally. Additionally his OWN CALENDAR shows that he was drinking as early as July 1, 1982 when he was only 17. I know the "boys will be boys" defense, but the point is that at age 51 he is willing to lie UNDER OATH to hide the fact that he was a serial law breaker between the ages of 17 to 21.

  28. Yes. He told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Unlike Christine Ballsy Ford who told a lie, then another lie, and nothing but lies. The End.

  29. The dems put on a great show. I especially liked the scene where the Undead females were clawing at the doors of the supreme court. That was so funny.
