Late night hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel skewer 'orange' Donald Trump over 'origins' mispronunciation
President Donald Trump was the subject of ridicule on Tuesday night over his White House remarks where he appeared to repeatedly mispronounce the word “origins.”
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.

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert mocked what he referred to as a “slip of the brain.”
“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.
