Desperate?! Ben Carson Fails To Answer THIS Question!

Dr. Ben Carson’s longshot campaign for the White House took another hit last night, when the venerable neurosurgeon flubbed his answer when asked what kind of person he would nominate to serve on the Supreme Court.

In response, he said that the “fruit salad of their life is what I will look at,” a phrase which drew immediate ridicule on Twitter.

The strange answer capped off a difficult night for Carson, who struggled to impose himself on a stage dominated by rivals Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz. At one point he asked “will someone please attack me?” in an effort to get more speaking time, but the plea came across as whiney.
