Twitter users offer different meanings of "Boofed", "Devil's Triangle" than Brett Kavanaugh

Howard TerryOct 01, 2018

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sat for an interview with Senate investigators Tuesday, where he denied lawyer Michael Avenatti's insinuations that his high school yearbook entry is replete with inside jokes pertaining to sexual depravity. Kavanaugh says he's never sexually assaulted anyone.

Questions about Kavanaugh's alleged habitual blackout drunkenness were repeatedly raised by Democratic Party senators.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) asked Kavanugh during the hearing what he and a friend were referencing when they used the term "boofed".

In the law school lounge on Thursday, most of the students were rooting against Kavanaugh.

At least once, however, Kavanaugh categorically denied that his drinking ever reached such a level.

"There's no problem with drinking beer in college". Coleman said there won't be a change until people in positions of power understand the impact of sexual assault on survivors.

'When he would drink, he would get obnoxious, ' she added.

I was appalled. He was clearly lying. That's what was surprising to me. "I'll be saying more as well", he said. "I just want it to work out well for the country. What do you like to drink?" "I can't express how disgusted I am with them, then and now". Renate Schroeder Dolphin, who was one of 65 women who signed a letter attesting to Kavanaugh's respectful behavior toward women, wasn't aware of the suggestive references to her in the yearbook until now, and she isn't happy.

Trump quietly followed suit, though he had vigorously resisted asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe the allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, now being raised by three women. He called Schroeder "a good female friend" who his friends "would admire and went to dances with", and that the joke was "clumsily meant to show affection and that she was one of us". "We need somebody who stands by truth and justice". Attorney Michael Avenatti has suggested the term in Kavanaugh's yearbook was related to sexual behavior.

Many are Googling those words now, particularly "Boofed" and "Devil's Triangle".

Maybe you could forgive or suspend disbelief over one sexual reference, but the yearbook also mentions "boofing". A similar inscription appears in Mark Judge's yearbook and reads, "Bart, have you boofed yet?"

"Devil's Triangle" has also been a title of board games, TV episodes and rock songs.

Put it this way: until some friend from high school corroborates that they used to play a drinking game called Devil's Triangle, it sure looks like Kavanaugh made that up to make it look less incriminating.

There is a cryptic reference on Kavanaugh's yearbook page that describes him as a "Renate Alumnius", the New York Times reported.

William Fishburne managed the Georgetown Prep football during Kavanaugh's senior year there.

The Times found that a total of 13 boys in Kavanaugh's class wrote notes about being "Renate Alumni".

Kavanaugh said he remembers Roche but emphasised that he does not corroborate Ramirez's story.

Some students who declined to be quoted by name said there is support for Kavanaugh on campus and that others were rushing to judgment too quickly on the allegations against him.
