A video featuring US President Donald Trump and White House staff received millions of views when it was posted to Twitter today.

The White House on Thursday jumped in on the "Yanny vs. Laurel" audio debate and it turns out President Trump doesn't hear either of the names that have split the nation.

But there are also plenty of White House staffs who only hear Yanny, including strategic-communications director Mercedes Schlapp. "Laurel" exists in the lower frequencies and "Yanny" exists in the higher frequencies.

Then, the first dissenter is shown: Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley. If you hadn't been introduced to the possibility of hearing "Yanny" or "Laurel" you may not have heard either of these words. On the other hand, some people have claimed to hear both and some others hear words that are not at all related to either Yanny or Laurel, such as Garry or Geery.

"Clearly you are getting your information from CNN because that's fake news.


Who's yanny? I hear coffefe".

"Odd. All I heard was 'Mueller, '" one person wrote.

"I hear 'covfefe, '" he said.

Laurel and Yanny debate was an audio version of "The Dress" - a photo that went viral in 2015 when no one could agree whether the garment was white and gold or blue and black.
