Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) used his time with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to ask about a number of things in Kavanaugh’s yearbook from over 35 years ago — including remarks about him farting.
“Have you, I don’t know if it’s ‘buffed’ or ‘boofed,’ how do you pronounce that?” Whitehouse asked Kavanaugh.
“That refers to flatulence,” Kavanaugh responded. “We were 16.”
“Okay,” Whitehouse responded. “And so when your friend Mark Judge put the same thing in his yearbook page back to you, he had the same meaning? It was flatulence?”
“I don’t know what he did but that’s my recollection,” Kavanaugh responded. “We want to talk about flatulence at age 16 on a yearbook page, I’m game.”
