Trump's White House tackles America's most divisive question: Laurel or Yanny?

Trump hears 'covfefe' as White House aides weigh in on 'Yanny' and 'Laurel'

White House Weighs in on Laurel vs. Yanny Debate: 'I Hear Covfefe'

A video posted to the White House's official Twitter account on Thursday might have put the whole debate to rest, but it might have also sparked a new one. "Yanny or Laurel." And in no time it blew up.

In the light-hearted video, staffers are asked if they hear "Laurel" in the audio clip, or if they hear "Yanny".

The never-ending Yanny vs Laurel debate has reached the White House. If you hadn't been introduced to the possibility of hearing "Yanny" or "Laurel" you may not have heard either of these words.

The clip opens with White House adviser - and first daughter - Ivanka Trump declaring the word is "so obviously Laurel", followed by many others who agree with her.

NC Teachers Rally For Better Pay and Resources
One teacher says this is just the first of many statements educators plan to make in Raleigh . He said Wednesday's rally was one of the largest he's seen in those 30 years.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took the opportunity to take a jab at the press. Older adults often start losing their hearing within the higher-frequency range, meaning it's possible that more young people hear "Yanny".

What do you hear?!

"Clearly you are getting your information from CNN because that's fake news". Higher frequency sounds in the recording make people hear "Yanny", whereas lower frequencies cause others to hear "Laurel". In fact, I began to wonder how in the world anyone could hear "Laurel".

Even Mike Pence joined the fun, robotically turning to the camera and asking, "Who's Yanny?"
