If you were on Twitter Tuesday night, you might have seen a handful of tweets remarking on the president’s pronunciation of “origins,” and that was apparently enough to inspire the writers at “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

If you missed Colbert, and you probably did, you’ll be glad that The Daily Beast wrote up the knock-knock joke for posterity.

Matt Wilstein writes:

But it was Trump’s “small slip of the brain” that came next that really caught Colbert’s attention.

“I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges, the oranges of the, uh, investigation,” Trump told reporters. “The beginnings, of that investigation.”

“Yes, sir!” Colbert replied. “We must take a look at the oranges of the investigation. I say it is high clementine we do so. The American people will not stangerine for it any longer. We can vitamin C right through the lies. We Tropi-can handle the juice.”

Then the host told his audience a knock-knock joke that ended with, “Orange you ashamed we have a president who can’t pronounce origins?”

Maybe you had to see it yourself to really get the comic effect Colbert was going for.

So you’ll probably still get suspended by Twitter if you tell a journalist to acquire computer programming skills, but the guy who writes stories about Stephen Colbert knock-knock jokes is still working, so it can’t be too hard to find a reporting gig out there.
