Trump went off on a rant where he started talking about the “oranges” of the Russia investigation and claimed that Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are laughing at him.
Trump said, “I will say this, look. There was no collusion, there was no of course obstruction, they were very disappointed. I don’t know what they were thinking, they all know — I guarantee you, they go into a room between Nadler, Schiff and the group, and they laugh like hell at how they’ve kept this thing going for two years. They laugh like hell. I hope that this investigation now, which is finished, it’s totally finished, no collusion, no obstruction, I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges of the investigation, the oranges, the beginnings of the investigation. You look at the origin of the investigation, where it started, how it started, who started it. Whether it’s Mccabe or Comey or a lot of them, where does it go? How high up in the White House did it go? You will all get Pulitzer Prizes, okay?”

Trump said oranges no less than three times in a single answer. At some point, it has to be universally acknowledged that the president is not all there. Donald Trump is slipping and fading fast. The oranges of the investigation is another verbal gaffe that is a sure sign that Trump mentally can’t handle even this tiny bit of the presidency that he has taken on.
The president is paranoid. He thinks Democrats are laughing at him behind his back, and he is losing his grasp basic words and communication.
The 2020 election can’t come soon enough.
