White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump, counselor Kellyanne Conway and director of social media Dan Scavino are all on team #Laurel. The audio went viral earlier this week, with some saying they hear "Laurel" in the clip and others saying they 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.

"I hear covfefe", Trump mentioned in a video posted to Twitter Thursday evening, seemingly poking enjoyable of himself after he tweeted "covfefe" one yr in the past. Higher frequency sounds in the recording make people hear "Yanny", whereas lower frequencies cause others to hear "Laurel".

Vice President Mike Pence answers with a confused, "Who's Yanny?"

Do you hear Yanny or Laurel? For those who thought "the dress" debate or the "Yanny-Laurel" debates were the end, now there's the "brain storm-green needle" conundrum.

The video ends with President Donald Trump deadpanning, "I hear covfefe" - a reference to a botched tweet he wrote previous year that was never explained.

"Omg u have ruined this for me", wrote another. Older adults often start losing their hearing within the higher-frequency range, meaning it's possible that more young people hear "Yanny".
