As the White House ceremony got under way on Monday, Mr Trumpsaid: "On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure".
He took his seat at the right end of the mahogany bench in the ornate courtroom - the location assigned to the court's juniormost member - and wore traditional black robes like the other justices.
Kavanaugh's first Supreme Court case involved arguments over the federal criminal sentencing law and came hours after Trump staged a ceremonial swearing-in for Kavanaugh at the White House. Some Kavanaugh supporters, however, were outraged that Kavanagh would be anything but proud to share a name with the newest Supreme Court justice.
He went on to thank President Trump for his unwavering support and cited Kennedy, for whom Kavanaugh clerked, as a role model and mentor.
"I give special gratitude to senators Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Joe Manchin, John Kyl and Lindsey Graham".
That sounds as though the skepticism Kavanaugh expressed is more widely shared than Reuters credits in this report. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations.
"This is a really divided time", said Justice Elena Kagan, who addressed the current climate of the court at an event at Princeton last week.
On Monday evening Kavanaugh, 53, joined family members, friends and President Trump at the White House for a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony, where the new justice tried to ease the partisan wounds from his confirmation process.
"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the awful pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", he said at the ceremony in the ornate White House East Room.
Mr Trump said he was "very proud" of Justice Kavanaugh and his family, and disparaged the anti-Kavanaugh protesters.
Kavanaugh's confirmation gave the Republican president a major political victory ahead of crucial November 6 congressional elections, with Trump's second selection for the nation's highest judicial body. He helped to vet Roberts and Alito when Kavanaugh was working as a lawyer in the White House.
Kavanaugh could not be impeached on the grounds of the accusation by Christine Blasey Ford of sexual assault 36 years ago, because it pertains to alleged actions as a private citizen, Dershowitz explained in an interview with Fox News.
With Kavanaugh on the bench, the court has five conservatives and four liberals. "That is now over", Kavanaugh said.
McConnell signaled last week that he could reverse himself and consider what would be a third high court nominee for President Donald Trump should a vacancy arise in 2020. And Saturday's vote was also a victory for the Senate, and for the integrity of our institution.
Pointing out that Kavanaugh's confirmation was approved by the smallest margin of any Supreme Court Justice since 1881, Kimmel referenced the widespread protests that ensued.
