Yanny or Laurel? President Trump hears 'Covfefe'

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".

The internet debate over whether a computer voice is saying "Laurel" or "Yanny" has finally reached the White House, where staffers were on both sides of the issue.

'Yanny's the victor, Laurel's the loser, ' she confidently declares. This may explain why some people hear both Yanny and Laurel, and if the person's ear moves between both high and low frequencies they're likely to hear both words. I've listened to Laurel and Yanny roughly one hundred times, and even using this tool I struggle to hear Yanny.

In a rare display of lighthearted humor, an unlikely source weighed in on the internet's "Yanny vs. Laurel" debate: the White House.

"Clearly you're getting your information from CNN because that's fake news - all I hear is Yanny", Sanders deadpans.

"People who are more attuned to the high frequencies are picking up on things that make it sound more like Yanny", linguist Ben Zimmer told CBS News.

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

"I hear covfefe", the president said, referring to a 2017 tweet that went viral due to the misspelling.
