Trump White House Kills Off Yanny-Laurel Debate With 'Ridiculous' Clip

Trump White House Kills Off Yanny-Laurel Debate With 'Ridiculous' Clip

Many Twitter users said the White House should be spending its time addressing more important issues.

The White House on Thursday poked fun at President TrumpDonald John TrumpGiuliani says Federal Bureau of Investigation may have placed spy in Trump campaign Giuliani: There is "nothing illegal about looking for dirt on political opponents" Giuliani: If Mueller subpoenas us, we will challenge it MORE's infamous "covfefe" tweet in a video weighing in on a viral internet debate.

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.

Story also added that if you change the pitch of the original recording you can hear both words.

On Tuesday internet was torn in two teams - Team Yanny and Team Laurel after a mysterious audio clip was doing rounds on social media. The confusing audio clip is playing around with frequency and the words the listener hears will depend on the range of frequency that the person picks up from the clip.

Now, the White House wants to be in on the debate. Much like anything on the internet, disagreements over what is being said in the clip broke out nearly immediately.

But hey, who knows what's real and what's right anymore?

Senior adviser Ivanka Trump says, "So clearly Laurel". Sanders responds, "Clearly you're getting your information from CNN because that's fake news".

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