The five Republican presidential candidates met in Houston Thursday for their final debate before next week's Super Tuesday primaries, hoping to win undecided voters.
Ben Carson said he would look at a Supreme Court nominee like a salad.
"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,” Carson said. “The fruit salad of their life is what I will look at.”
His comments quickly became a trending topic on social media.
