In a debate that has taken over the internet, an audio clip has caused a divide about whether or not the voice is saying "Laurel" or "Yanny." The White House released a video of what some of the top administration members thought, including Donald Trump.

Trump on "Laurel" and "Yanny"

Every few years a phenomenon takes over the internet for a brief moment in time that creates discussion and debate. In 2015, the debate was over a dress that some saw as gold and white, while others believed was blue and white.

However, the latest internet discussion is over an audio clip that was originally posted on Reddit. The audio clip in question gives users the opportunity to choose between hearing the name "Laurel" or "Yanny." Depending on the individual, there seems to be an almost 50/50 split as to what name was being heard. CBS reported that the origin of the post came from a high school in Georgia where a student looked up the name "Laurel" on Google only to find an audio translation saying "Yanny." She put it to the test on the internet and it found its way to Reddit.

In response, celebrities, athletes, and millions of Americans have taken to social media to give their thoughts.

In a video tweet sent out by the offical White House Twitter account on May 17, Donald Trump and others seemed to be confused as well. "So clearly Laurel," Ivanka Trump said. "It's Laurel, but I could deflect to Yanny if you need me to," Kellyanne Conway said.

In the video, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was told that it was reported that she heard the name "Laurel," to which she responded, "Clearly you are getting your news from CNN because that's fake news.

All I hear is Yanny." After several other members of the administration gave their thoughts, Donald Trump closed out the video by saying, "I hear covfefe."

Twitter responds

Are the "Laurel and Yanny" video was posted to Twitter, critics of the administration fired back. "Had all this time to create this stupid video but no time to address the issues facing our nation.

Ridiculous," one tweet read.

"I hear impeachment," a Twitter user wrote. "We're not paying to do this stuff. Don't pretend to be human," an additional tweet added. "Is this the best use if our tax money?" yet another tweet went on to say.

"It’s so funny watching monsters laugh!!!" Roland Scahill tweeted.

"No no no. You don't get to join in on the fun. Go back to planning your internment camps and coming up with new racial slurs," a social media user wrote. The backlash continued as the opposition to the entire White House showed no signs of ending.
