  • Trump Settles The Yanny/Laurel Debate

President Trump, together with different members of his administration, jumped in on the "Yanny vs. Laurel" debate on Thursday. "There's also the question of what platform you heard the recording on first â€" the differences in the audio could have something to do with how Twitter or Instagram compresses video files.

Trump had the last word: "I hear 'covfefe, '" he said.

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

Earlier this week, a short audio clip went viral and divided the internet into two camps - those who heard "Yanny" and those who heard "Laurel".

GOP leaders discuss immigration with Trump at White House
Like Trump, Ryan also has said he wants to deal with the DACA problem that has left the immigrants in limbo, but so far has refused to advance any bill.


Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah and presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway concur, Conway adding that she "could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to".

"Clearly you're getting your information from CNN because that's fake news". In May 2018, Yanny vs Laurel fever took the internet by storm, and scientists were called in from their labs by the hundreds to explain what was going on. "All I hear is Yanny".

But the final decision falls to President Donald Trump, and he put the controversy to bed once and for all.

'I hear covfefe, ' he declares, referencing the odd tweet he sent out at 3am previous year that became a viral sensation of its own.
