White House, Trump weigh in on 'Laurel' versus 'Yanny' debate

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

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.

US President Donald Trump and the White House are the latest to weigh in on the Laurel versus Yanny debate.

He played it for his peers, who disagreed over whether the syllables formed "Yanny" or "Laurel".

The audio went viral earlier this week, with some saying they hear "Laurel" in the clip and others saying they hear "Yanny". On the other hand, some people have claimed to hear both and some others hear words that are not at all related to either Yanny or Laurel, such as Garry or Geery. If you hadn't been introduced to the possibility of hearing "Yanny" or "Laurel" you may not have heard either of these words.

The video begins with Ivanka Trump - she of the "laurel" camp - and includes appearances by deputy press secretary Raj Shah, another "laurel" person, adviser Kellyanne Conway, and Vice President Pence, who asks, "Who's Yanny".

"If there was stuff going on at high frequency range maybe you would get young people hearing/and being influenced by that, but not oldies?"

Decide for yourself by watching the clip above, via the White House.

A new video surfaced Wednesday showing a clear creature which lights up and speaks, but what does it say?

Comparing this with the dress, a user wrote, "so is this dress yanny or laurel".

So, what do you hear?
