Speaking to reporters earlier in the day, President Trump expressed that he hoped that the Department of Justice would “take a look at the oranges” or, as he clarified, the “beginnings” of the Russia investigation.
“The Mueller report, I wish covered the oranges, how it started,” is what it sounded like coming from the president.
“Yes! Yes, sir! We must take a look at the oranges of the investigation! I say it is high clementine we do so!” Colbert exclaimed.
The CBS star then shared a twist of the classic “knock-knock” joke.
“Knock, knock,” Colbert said.
“Who’s there?” the audience asked.
“Orange.” Colbert answered.
“Orange who?” the audience shouted back.
“Orange you ashamed we have a president who can’t pronounce ‘origins?’” Colbert quipped.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” host Jimmy Kimmel also had fun at President Trump’s expense.
“What happens is he wakes up every morning, he sees the color of his face, and the rest of the day he has that word stuck in his head,” Kimmel told the Las Vegas crowd.
