— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) February 26, 2016
At tonight's GOP debate in Houston, Ben Carson said he would pick a Supreme Court nominee based on the "fruit salad of their life," causing delight and confusion on Twitter.
Carson: "We’re going to have to encourage them to act in an appropriate way or we will lose our religious freedoms. And as president, I would go and look at what a person’s life has been. What have they done in the past? What kind of judgments have they made? What kind of associations do they have? That will tell you a lot more than an interview will tell you. The fruit salad of their life is what I would look at."
The head-scratching phrase quickly started trending on Twitter.
