“Saturday
Night Live’s”
 cold open portrayed Republican lawmakers
holding a raucous victory party celebrating Judge Brett
Kavanaugh
‘s confirmation to the Supreme
Court. Kavanaugh
was sworn in
earlier on Saturday following congressional
hearings where
Dr. Christine Blasey 
Ford
accused him of sexually assaulting her
when the two were in
high school and a week-long
FBI investigation
.

“Don, I’m here in the GOP locker room where the mood is nothing
short of euphoric,” said Heidi
Gardner, 
playing CNN’s Dana Bash, surrounded by
Republican senators dancing and exchanging back slaps.

“Everyone’s pumped, from white men over 60 to white men over
70,” Beck Bennett’s Mitch McConnell said.

Kate McKinnon’s Senator Lindsey Graham offered the CNN
anchor a “Kavanaugh World Champion hat.”

“We made a lot of women real worried today, but I’m not
getting pregnant so I don’t care,” she joked.

McKinnon also thanked the “fans” who “have been there for
us all week, cheering and screaming outside of our offices” — a
reference to
protestors who flooded the Capitol building
in response to
Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“I know that they agree with because they’re shouting out
Me
Too
,'” she said.

Senator Chuck Schumer, played by Alex Moffat, provided
commentary on behalf of the Democrats.

“We thought this time would be better than the Anita Hill
hearing because Dr. Ford was white, but then it turned out Brett
Kavanaugh was white too and we were completely blindsided by
that,” he said.
