As a teen, Kavanaugh was never a legal drinker in Maryland

Kavanaugh Apologizes for Turning Sen. Klobuchar’s Question About His Drinking Back on Her

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, had a stand-off during the contentious public hearing surrounding the allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, a professor who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the 1980s.

He also told Fox News in his interview Monday: "Yes, there were parties, and yes, the drinking age was 18".

Those who were 18 or older at the time were "grandfathered" in, so they could continue to drink legally. "And yes, the seniors were legal".

Speaking briefly to reporters after an event for Native Americans at the Capitol in Sacramento, Brown called Thursday's hearing before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee a "step toward an increasingly polarized America".

Journalist Craig Melvin also appreciated Kavanaugh's love for beer and tweeted, "One major takeaway so far?" I liked beer. I still like beer... The drinking age, as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal, senior year in high school people were legal to drink.

Health officials encouraging residents to get flu vaccine
Though the toll was highest among seniors, the dead included 180 children, "and a majority of them were unvaccinated", Adams says. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ) recommends all people 6 months of age and older get immunized against flu.

"Yeah, and I'm curious if you have", Kavanaugh answered. "Klobuchar was going for was a line of questioning that would suggest, first of all, that he drank far more in high school and college than he has admitted", he said, "and that drinking is likely to have impaired his memory such that incidents like the ones that have been alleged could certainly have occurred". "In your written testimony, you said sometimes you had too many drinks".

"I was going to say, I started my last colloquy by saying to Senator Klobuchar how much I respect her and respected what she did at the last hearing, and she asked me a question at the end that I responded to by asking her a question". Was there ever a time when you drank so much you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before?

Klobuchar added that Kavanaugh "didn't really answer the question" of whether he ever blacked out. Klobuchar asked. "That's not happened, is that your answer?" "You talk about a nominee getting off the floor, when all we're asking for is one week for an investigation".

Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

The author of 'Normal Girl, novelist Molly Jong-Fast tweeted, "Brett Kavanaugh will not apologize for loving beer and being an angry drunk".
