Trump has the final word in Laurel/Yanny debate

Their input comes after the likes of Chrissy Teigen and Ellen DeGeneres - who both heard laurel - gave their say.

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

The "laurel" or "yanny" fever - and it is a fever - sweeping across the nation reached its peak on Thursday when the White House released a video to social media with all of its key players weighing in on the least controversial viral controversy in recent memory.

Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah and presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway concur, Conway adding that she "could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to".

Vice President Mike Pence has no idea what is going on ....in case you're listening, Robert Mueller. In a recent Twitter poll, 47% of people heard Yanny while 53% heard Laurel.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputes the videographer's initial claim: "Sarah, it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how you respond?"

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

"All I hear is covfefe", President Trump says.

"The big debate right now, is it Yanny or is it Laurel?"

"Omg u have ruined this for me", wrote another. A few of us heard Laurel.
