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'

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

Do you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"?

Just like the dress that surfaced online in 2013, which gave wind to the debate whether it's gold and white or blue and black, the two seemingly unrelated words "Yanny" and "Laurel" have been buzzing the internet lately.

The video starts with President Trump's daughter Ivanka laughing at the robot voice before it flashes between staff members who are split down the middle between Laurel or Yanny. "Yanny or Laurel." And in no time it blew up.

The debate is this: a distorted audio bite plays and those listening in either hear "Yanny" or "Laurel". If you hadn't been introduced to the possibility of hearing "Yanny" or "Laurel" you may not have heard either of these words.

The Scottish Parliament today voted down crucial Brexit-related legislation - sparking fears of a constitutional crisis. The U.K. ceded more autonomy as part of promises made during 2014's independence referendum campaign.

The white house staff having a little bit of fun there.

A short explanation people's brain's perceive pitch and frequency differently and depending on the person you'll hear a different word.

So, what do you hear?

'Clearly you're getting your information from CNN, because that's fake news, ' she jokes. In fact, I began to wonder how in the world anyone could hear "Laurel". The Yanny vs Laurel debate has now reached The White House - and it's a divided house as the staff can not agree on what the audio clip actually says.
