Judge Kavanaugh, have you ever farted?


Below remarks are from the Senate Judicial Committee's official transcript of its hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to be a Supreme Court justice.  In it, Democrats prove that what a 16-year-old writes in his yearbook can disqualify him for the seat. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is a Rhode Island Democrat. 

The issue of farts:

WHITEHOUSE: … Judge, have you — I don’t know if it’s “boufed” or “boofed” — how do you pronounce that?

KAVANAUGH: That refers to flatulence. We were 16.


WHITEHOUSE: OK. And so when your friend Mark Judge said the same — put the same thing in his yearbook page back to you, he had the same meaning? It was flatulence?

KAVANAUGH: I don’t know what he did, but that’s my recollection. We want to talk about flatulence at age 16 on a yearbook page, I’m — I’m game.

The issue of quarters raised by porn start attorney Michael Avenatti who referred to the entry "Devil's triangle."

WHITEHOUSE: Devil’s triangle?

KAVANAUGH: Drinking game.

WHITEHOUSE: How’s it played?

KAVANAUGH: Three glasses in a triangle.


KAVANAUGH: You ever played quarters?


KAVANAUGH: OK. It’s a quarters game.

What the ffffffff?

WHITEHOUSE: And there are, like, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven F’s in front of the Fourth of July. What does that signify, if anything?

KAVANAUGH: One of our friends, Squi, when he said the F word starting at a young age, had kind of a wind-up to the F word. Kind of a “ffff.”


And then the word would come out. And when we were 15, we thought that was funny. And it became an inside joke for the — how he would say, “Ffff” — and I won’t repeat it here. For the F word.

WHITEHOUSE: Referring to Georgetown versus Louisville and…

KAVANAUGH: you want — you want any more on the Fs?

WHITEHOUSE: No. Orioles versus Red Sox. And both, you respond, “Who won anyway?” Or “Who won that game anyway?” Should we draw any conclusion that a loss of recollection associated with alcohol was involved in you not knowing who won the games that you attended?

KAVANAUGH: No. First of all, the Georgetown-Louisville was watching it on TV, a party. And the…

WHITEHOUSE: That’s not inconsistent with drinking and not remembering what happened.

KAVANAUGH: I’m aware. And the point of both was, we in essence were having a party and didn’t pay attention to the game even though the game was the excuse we had for getting together.

I think that’s very common. I don’t know if you’ve been to a Super Bowl party for example, Senator, and not paid attention to the game and just hung out with your friends. I don’t know if you’ve done that or not. But that’s what we were referring to in those — those two occasions.

So, now we know that Kavanaugh once was a 16-year-old boy. Fie!

  • Dennis, why not ask the ultimate question, "Judge Kavanaugh, when did you STOP beating your wife and children?".

  • In reply to HHH Is My Hero:

    I found that portion of the hearing comical ...talk about being outta touch ……

  • Having been and knowing other men that have been falsely accused of a wide variety of things that never happened, not only did I find her not credible, I just don't believer her.

    But you never know.

    Nearly 50 years as an artist, I like to think I have decent observation skills with a personal interest in body language.

    Which is why I was fascinated by this when I found it.
