MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” criticized Republicans on Monday for celebrating Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court by drinking beer.


Republicans drank beer to celebrate Kavanaugh’s confirmation because of his proclamation that he “likes beer” and “still likes beer” during his testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A number of news articles during the nomination process attacked Kavanaugh’s credibility because of his apparent love for beer while in high school and college.

“This weekend was a real opportunity for a dignified, respectful response,” cohost Mika Brzezinski said. “Republicans celebrated the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a victory for Republicans. Activists tweeted photos of their alcohol with the hashtag #Beers4Brett.”

“I just don’t know why this is funny,” Brzezinski whined.

“It’s actually not funny,” cohost Joe Scarborough chimed in. “It’s distressing. They’re talking about the United States Supreme Court.”

“This is, again, so unbecoming,” he continued. “I’ve gotta say, classless in this respect that they’re acting like it’s a high school football game.”
