At one point, Kavanaugh asked a Senator if they like drinking beer too. I still like beer.

"Yes we drank beer, my friends and I, boys and girls". "One saw a flash in the exchange with Klobuchar the same sense of entitlement, cruelty and lack of simple decency that Christine Blasey Ford allegedly experienced way back when, the memory seared in her brain of two obnoxious teens laughing at her ordeal".

"We drank beer, and you know, so - so did, I think, the vast majority of - of people our age at the time". "But we have heard, not under oath, your college roommate say that you did drink frequently".

Brett Kavanaugh gave a spirited defense of his conduct and character at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, during which he was accused of drunken sexual assault, but mentioned drinking beer almost 30 times.

"I have no drinking problem, judge", Klobuchar said with a smile.

But bizarrely, a refrain of Kavanaugh's defense became repeated iterations of some version of "I like beer". He said Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking and the drinking age was "for context" of how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer.

Klobuchar appeared to accept Kavanaugh's apology: "I appreciate that".

This gave fodder to the twitterverse as several comments regarding Kavanaugh's "unapologetic love for beer" started trending on the social networking site soon after the testimony. "This is a tough process, I'm sorry about that".

As Klobuchar's remarks indicate, though, Kavanaugh didn't really answer the question. The drinking age, as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal, senior year in high school people were legal to drink. Do you like beer, senator, or not?

Besides this, all of the top 10 Twitter trending topics in the United States on Thursday were about the same topic- the Kavanaugh- Ford hearing.

Kavanaugh: You're asking about blackout.

Josh Barro, a centrist pundit who writes for New York Magazine, has argued that Senate Democrats largely botched their questioning of Kavanaugh - save for Klobuchar.

The issue took on steam after Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge - who Ford alleges was in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly attacked her - came into focus.

In his memoir, Wasted: Tales of a GenX Drunk, Judge recounts years of local high school parties and beach getaways involving alcohol.
