Carson: “Can Somebody Attack Me, Please?”


Ben Carson in the Spin Room

Houston Tx (Storch Report) — Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon, brought down the house last night during the Republican debate when he delivered the most comical line and the most memorable one which has now become the most quoted and trending topic on Twitter.

His comical line came about during a lengthy exchange between the four other candidates of mocking, name calling accusations, petty self-destructive childishness to the point where Wolf Blitzer CNN’s moderator was losing control.  Carson interrupted and asked the candidates, “Can somebody attack me, please?”

It has become routine during the debates, where Carson is among the candidates with the least amount of speaking time.

Carson’s memorable quote came about when moderator Hugh Hewit asked him what he would look for in a potential nominee for the Supreme Court.

In response he said, he would “go through and I would 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.”

Carson then closed by saying, “The fruit salad of their life is what I will look at.”

It got an immediate reaction on social media and became a trending topic on Twitter.
