Matt Damon, long-time friend of Harvey Weinstein, has targeted Brett Kavanaugh in his latest ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch.
“I’m here tonight because of a sham, a political con job orchestrated by the Clintons, George Soros–Kathy Griffin and Mr Ronan Sinatra,” Damon said as he parodied the Supreme Court nominee.
“Now, I’m usually an optimist. I’m a keg-is-half-full kind of guy. But what I’ve seen from the monsters on this committee makes me want to puke, and not from beer.”
“Guess what – I’m not backing down you sons of b-tches,” Damon added “I don’t know the meaning of the word ‘stop.’”
Hollywood hypocrisy at its absolute finest.

Damon told ABC News he had no knowledge of Weinstein’s behaviour, except for when it came to Gwyneth Paltrow.
“I knew the story about Gwyneth, from Ben because he was with her after Brad, but I was working with Gwyneth with Harvey, you know on Ripley.
“I never talked to Gwyneth about it. Ben told me, but I knew that they had come to whatever agreement or understanding that they had come to, she had handled it. And she was the first lady of Miramax and he treated her incredibly respectfully, always,” Damon claimed.
In a 2017 interview Damon claimed that ten years ago, if you were accused of sexual assault, you’d “go to mediation and organise a settlement.”
Now with social media, “these stories get gasoline poured on them,” Damon said. “The moment the claim is made, if you make that same claim today to me, I would be scorched earth.”
Ten years ago if you made a claim against me and I had a big movie coming out, I have a hundred million dollar movie, or I have a movie that is personally important to me coming out, and close to the release of that film you say, Matt Damon grabbed by butt and stuck his tongue down my throat – we would then go to mediation and organise a settlement, alright? I go, I don’t want this…
Now with the internet… and with social media, these stories, it’s like they get gasoline poured on them. So, the moment the claim is made, if you make that same claim today to me, I would be scorched earth.
I’d go, I don’t care if it cost me ten million dollars to fight this in court with you for ten years, you’re not taking my name from me. You’re not taking my name and my reputation. I’ve worked too hard for it and I earned it and you can’t just blow me up like that.

Just a reminder that Matt Damon has a shitty track record believing women and defending abusive men. ??♀️
