Matt Damon's eerily good Kavanaugh SNL sketch

Say what you will about the Trump era: it has ushered in a SNL renaissance. Between Baldwin's eerily good Trump and McKinnon's Sessions, Melissa McCarthy's Spicer and Bill Murray's Bannon, SNL is proving Garry Trudeau's point that satire isn't supposed to change minds, it's supposed to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.

Kavanaugh embodies "comfortable" which is why his decidedly uncomfortable performance before the Senate was so singular; Matt Damon's SNL cold open skewers Kavanaugh through-and-through.
