The White House twitter account posted a video Thursday night of staffers' two cents, with President Trump himself making an appearance.

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

A user wrote,"Does anyone hear both yanny and laurel or is it just me?" "All I hear is Yanny", responded Sarah Sanders.

The clip opens with White House adviser - and first daughter - Ivanka Trump declaring the word is "so obviously Laurel", followed by many others who agree with her.

Mr Trump alluded to his viral tweet past year that ended in the world "covfefe", before it was deleted.

The audio clip was trending this morning, so I shared the story and played the clip for listeners on the air.

"I only heard yanny once at the beginning and then heard laurel very clearly each time after which was really weird".

'Yanny's the victor, Laurel's the loser, ' she confidently declares. For example, what you hear might have to do with your speakers, headphones, or the acoustics in the room.

"You can hear the words "Brainstorm" or "Green Needle" based on which word you think about".

"People who are more attuned to the high frequencies are picking up on things that make it sound more like Yanny", linguist Ben Zimmer told CBS News.
