Kavanaugh wrongly claims he could drink legally in Maryland

Washington Post  YouTube

Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh about his drinking.

Kavanaugh later apologized for his question, but the exchange stood out Thursday in testimony from Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. In other words, it was not legal for him to drink in Maryland at any point during his high school years.

Kavanaugh "never suggested that all of his high school drinking was of legal age", White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement reported by The Associated Press.

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.

Kirk reforms, gains strength as it approaches Caribbean
Gradual weakening is expected during the next couple of days while the system moves over the eastern Caribbean sea. It is approximately 300 miles off the coast of Barbados and has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph.

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

Kavanaugh's explanation of how much he likes beer, versus his inability to have ever sexually assaulted someone, versus the audacity that everyone who drinks beer might be accused of sexual assault, was a clear attempt to show that he's just a good ol' boy who knows how to have a good time without losing his inhibitions and causing someone harm. The drinking age, as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal, senior year in high school people were legal to drink. In fact, he still likes beer.

"I drank beer, my friends and I", Kavanaugh said.

Klobuchar pressed for an answer: "Could you answer the question, judge?" Yes, we drank beer.

Christine Blasey Ford says alleged Kavanaugh attack ‘drastically altered my life’
Mr Kavanaugh could tilt the court conservative for decades. "I never met them", he said. She reiterated her allegations in remarks prepared for Thursday's hearing.

"You're asking about a blackout", the judge responded.

Shah insisted that Kavanaugh had said the legal drinking age was 18 because it "allowed friends to legally purchase beer, and for him to drink at high school parties", the AP reported. "But we have heard, not under oath, your college roommate say that you did drink frequently". "Have you?" Kavanaugh replied. "I don't know, have you?"

"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". The drinking age there did not increase to 21 from 18 until 1986.

Klobuchar: So you're saying there's never been a chance where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened? Kavanaugh's bio in the senior yearbook notes that he was a member of the "Keg City Club (treasurer) - 100 Kegs or Bust".

The Quest will also work with most previous Oculus software, so at launch there shouldn't be a shortage of content. Last year, Zuckerberg explained that Facebook's goal is to eventually get 1 billion people into virtual reality.

While he admitted in his congressional testimony that there were probably occasions during his time at Georgetown Prep that he had consumed "too many beers", a combative Kavanaugh denied he had ever gotten out of control or acted inappropriately toward women. "We drink beer. We liked beer", he said.
