White House divided on Yanny Laurel debate

But the most memorable appearance had to be that of President Donald Trump.

"So clearly Laurel", an amused Ivanka Trump says while looking at the viral post that started it all.

Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence's Chief of Staff, also reveals he's on Team Laurel.

Of course, the scientific explanation won't kill the internet chatter, so if you're hearing Laurel vs. Yanny, it's doesn't necessarily mean that you're wrong (and vice versa) - even if the internet says otherwise. The clip was posted a few days ago, and now hundreds of thousands of people are engaged in a debate over what they hear.

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".

Thursday's meeting was the latest in a series of conferences on military issues Putin chaired this week at his Black Sea retreat. Russian television broadcast short clips from the two men's discussion.

"It's Laurel, but I could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to", Conway said. "All I hear is Yanny", responded Sarah Sanders.

If you're desperate to try and hear both, using an equalizer (like this Chrome extension) lets you turn up the bass and turn the treble down, which was enough to make it flip for me.

"Odd. All I heard was 'Mueller, '" one person wrote.

"I hear 'covfefe, '" he said.

Mr Trump alluded to his viral tweet previous year that ended in the world "covfefe", before it was deleted.
