Cory Booker swiftly brings coffee to Ford during hearing

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford asked for a caffeine hit during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday — prompting Sen. Cory Booker to fetch her a coffee, sending Twitter abuzz.

“I anticipate needing some caffeine if that’s available,” Ford told committee Chairman Chuck Grassley before reading her opening statement.

After she finished the statement, the New Jersey Democrat brought a cup of joe to the witness table.

“I think I can proceed and sip on the coffee,” Ford then said when asked if she needed a break.

“Nobody can mix up my coffee right,” Grassley (R-Iowa) quipped in response. “So you’re pretty fortunate.”

Meanwhile, her request created a wave of commentary on social media from both detractors and supporters.

“Isn’t that the one thing you don’t want mid panic attack?” wrote Twitter user Sam alongside a head-scratching emoji.

But others found it relatable.

“Dr. Blasey Ford is all women: recounting something horrible, trying not to cry, then asking for caffeine,” tweeted Paige Phelps.
