‘SNL’ Cold Open Took Us Into The Frat Boy-Style ‘GOP Locker Room’ Following Kavanaugh’s Confirmation

Republicans are gloating after controversial Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed over the weekend. NBC’s Saturday Night Live enjoyed the last laugh, perfectly lampooning the GOP’s obsession with beer loving judge Kavanaugh.

Here’s a sneak-peak into the GOP’s celebratory locker room.


The cold-open featured SNL standouts like Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson playing senators Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake. They celebrated Kavanaugh’s confirmation in the most fitting way possible: by chugging a few beers and partying through the night.

Democrats are pretty miserable this week, but most agree the sketch brought some comic relief.

Of course, humorless right-wing trolls were out in full force.

While most enjoyed the cold-open, others thought it was too soon to joke about Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

This sketch is reminiscent of the iconic SNL episode following Donald Trump’s election in November 2016. Sure, it’s tough to laugh after you’ve taken a major political defeat, but it helps!

Just don’t forget…the fight against Kavanaugh isn’t over – it’s just begun. Make sure to vote this November and get involved to turn the tide against the GOP in this coming election. We’ll drink to that!
