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

GETTYWhat do you hear

"I hear covfeve", Trump says from his desk in the Oval Office, referencing the infamous typo published on his Twitter account a year ago.

But there are also plenty of White House staffs who only hear Yanny, including strategic-communications director Mercedes Schlapp.

Do you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"? that is the question now raging on social media and Danny Aronson, CEO of EVEN, the company creating headphones known as "glasses for your ears" has explained the technical reasons for the phenomenon.

"It's Laurel", says Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.

Unless you live under an internet-less rock, you've probably been asked the question sometime this week: yanny or laurel? She proudly says, "It's Laurel", before adding, "But I could deflect and defer to Yanny if you need me to".

The White House has published on Twitter a video showing staffers taking on the key question of the week.




But, if you hear Yanny, that's all the higher notes.

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

Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a crack that touched on the president's attacks on news reporting he doesn't like, joking that the rumor that she heard laurel must have come from CNN, "because that's fake news".

Seated at his desk, Trump proclaims, "I hear covfefe".

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