But there are also plenty of White House staffs who only hear Yanny, including strategic-communications director Mercedes Schlapp.

Conway joked that while the sound she heard was "laurel", she could "deflect and divert to yanny" if needed.

- The "Laurel versus Yanny" debate that's captivated the social-media-verse and everyone from celebrities to the White House, actually started with a homework assignment for Georgia teen 15-year-old Katie Hetzel of Flowery Branch High School. Whoever is recording the video says to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, "Sarah it's been reported that you hear 'Laurel, ' how do you respond?" I heard a very tinny computerized voice saying, "yanny".


Then, the first dissenter is shown: Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley.

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

Vice President Mike Pence has no idea what is going on ....in case you're listening, Robert Mueller. The disputed mystery audio clip that sounds like different things to different people, Yanny or Laurel has divided the Internet. She fires back, "Clearly you're getting your information from CNN because that's fake news".


The video ends with a cameo by President Trump who delivers the punchline. 'All I hear is Yanny'.

The white house staff having a little bit of fun there.
