What’s the difference in pronunciation between ‘origins’ and ‘oranges’, and why is it so hard for president Trump to get it?

The Daily Show held a contest of Trump’s mispronounced words and 3,000,000 viewers cast their vote. The proud winner was the word ‘ORANGES’.

This episode is a pronunciation tutorial that explains the difference between ‘oranges’ and the word Trump initially meant to pronounce – ‘origins’.
