It's Neither Yanny Nor Laurel - It's Covfefe!

President Donald Trump weighs in on Yanny vs. Laurel

"Sarah it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how do you respond?" a person asks Sanders.

"I hear covfefe", Trump said in a video posted to Twitter Thursday night, seemingly poking fun of himself after he tweeted "covfefe" one year ago.

"It's Laurel", Conway said, "but I could deflect and defer to Yanny if you need me to".

The never-ending Yanny vs Laurel debate has reached the White House.

Like any viral clip, this one also began when Cloe Feldman, a YouTuber, and social media influencer, added this audio clip to her Instagram story and then took to Twitter, asking, "What do you hear?!"

The rest of America may be resting on its Laurels, but President Donald Trump's mind appears to be stuck on another word that puzzled us all.

Fallen officer's son gets police escort to school
Christopher Wolfe, 21, was suspected of shooting and killing a 26-year-old man at a home in Terre Haute, Indiana . Wolfe also died of a gunshot wound, but officials haven't yet released details about how he was shot.

'Definitely Laurel, ' Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah agrees. The disputed mystery audio clip that sounds like different things to different people, Yanny or Laurel has divided the Internet.

"Clearly you're getting your information from CNN "cause that's fake news".

My guess is that peoples' ears are producing the same effect as the High Pass Filter, where their ears are not able to pick up the lower frequencies and thus only hear "Yanny" because the harmonics that produce the "Laurel" sound are not perceived.

"Who's Yanny?" Vice President Pence asks. "A few of us heard Yanny".

Finally, the clip ends with President Trump claiming: "I hear Covfefe".

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