  • Trump hears 'covfefe' as White House aides weigh in on 'Yanny' and 'Laurel'

And President Donald Trump ends the lighthearted video claiming "I hear covfefe".

While most people who listen to the "Laurel or Yanny" audio will only hear one of the words, people are hearing both on the "brainstorm or green needle" test.

Professor Charles Spence, professor of experimental psychology, at Oxford, said he could only hear "laurel" and it could be because of his age.

The Yanny vs. Laurel debate took a dark turn when the U.S. Air Force thought it would be a good idea to use it in a now-deleted tweet that bragged about repressing a Taliban offensive.

Here is a brief summery: For starters, what you hear depends on which frequencies your brain emphasizes.

North Korea Dismantling Nuclear Site, Says US Monitor
North Korea's move comes ahead of Kim Jong-un's much-anticipated summit with Donald Trump in Singapore on 12 June. Some key facilities remain intact and the tunnel entrances remain open, however.

In the light-hearted video, staffers are asked if they hear "Laurel" in the audio clip, or if they hear "Yanny". "But I could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to". "Who's yanny? I hear coffefe". So hearing Yanny might mean you have younger ears.

Decide for yourself by watching the clip above, via the White House.

White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump, counselor Kellyanne Conway and director of social media Dan Scavino are all on team #Laurel. Much like anything on the internet, disagreements over what is being said in the clip broke out nearly immediately.

"Sarah, it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how do you respond?" asks an unidentified staffer. In fact, I began to wonder how in the world anyone could hear "Laurel".
