Trump just tried to say “origins” three times but kept saying “oranges” and Twitter is losing it

President Trump spoke to the press in the Oval Office today and ended up reigniting fears that his mental facilities are rapidly deteriorating. During a conspiracy theory-tinged rant about the investigation into his 2016 campaign, he repeatedly tried to say that the “origins” of the investigation need to be examined.


But he didn’t say “origins.”

Instead, Trump nonsensically referred to the “oranges” of the investigation three times. After the first garbled pronunciation, he circled back and took another shot at saying the word correctly. Again, what came out was “oranges.” Trump rambled on a bit more, then tried again to say “origins” and again said “oranges.”

When one watches the video, it looks as if he’s aware that he’s mispronouncing the word and is trying his hardest to correct himself, but his brain just can’t form the word. There are disturbing shades of senility on display, a chilling thought given the reality that this man is in control of our nuclear arsenal.

It’s, of course, possible that this was simply a particularly strange gaffe, but given his age and the fact that his behavior has become more erratic and unhinged over the past two years, one really can’t rule out the possibility that the President of the United States is literally losing his mind.

Twitter was quick to seize on the weird clip, with users piling on to mock our cruel president in exactly the manner he deserves. While a lot of the responses were quite funny, they do little to assuage the unease one feels when considering the aforementioned implications. This man is clearly unfit for office and must be voted out as soon as possible.
