MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Tuesday hilariously reported on the "oranges" aspect of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into President Donald Trump.

The host played a clip of Trump speaking to reporters, about oranges.

"I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges, the oranges of the investigation, the beginnings of that investigation," Trump said. "The Mueller report, I wish, covered the oranges, how it started."

"I had no idea it started with oranges," Maddow noted. "I mean, now it all makes sense!"

"Everybody's been teasing him about his makeup tone all this time, but every time he came out that color, it was a signal about the oranges!" Maddow continued.

"The oranges? It was so weird," she noted.

"The president today lamenting the citrusy beginnings of the Mueller report and I'm sure they are juicy," she continued. "Enough to fill a whole novel of pulp fiction -- very pulpy."

"What the heck was that?" Maddow asked. "And it wasn't just one time, he kept going on and on about 'The oranges, the oranges!'"

"That was very weird," Maddow concluded.
