    While Kavanaugh’s opponents called him out on his alleged fondness of alcohol during the Senate hearings, it seems that his proponents are now using this issue to celebrate the man’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

    On October 7, Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court Justice, prompting a considerable number of both his supporters and detractors to vent their emotions on social media.

    Right after the vote, US President Trump himself applauded the Senate confirmation of his pick, saying he would sign Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment on Saturday and describing this development as "very exciting."

    ​Many Twitter users followed suit, apparently mocking allegations about Kavanaugh’s drinking habits by using hashtag #BeersForBrett to toast the newest member of the Supreme Court.

    Some however slammed both Kavanaugh and the new hashtag, insisting that he is unfit to be a Supreme Court judge.
