Yanny or Laurel? President Trump hears 'Covfefe'

Turns out, the new auditory illusion, Yanny or Laurel has been breaking the internet. I heard a very tinny computerized voice saying, "yanny".

Senior aide and first daughter Ivanka Trump, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders were among those taking part in the video.

Now, the Trump administration has hopped onto the dying meme a day late by making a video where various characters from the White House respond.

Do you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"? that is the question now raging on social media and Danny Aronson, CEO of EVEN, the company creating headphones known as "glasses for your ears" has explained the technical reasons for the phenomenon.

"When there is more energy towards the mid and higher frequencies, people tend to hear "Yanny". This just shows that people on internet will debate on anything and everything and hence it becomes viral.

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

'Yanny's the victor, Laurel's the loser, ' she confidently declares.

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

Vice President Mike Pence has no idea what is going on ....in case you're listening, Robert Mueller.

"Normal hearing, you can hear all those high pitches or even a lot of musicians who are really entuned to those different sounds will hear Yanny", said Stone.

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

There is a difference between what you hear, and why you hear it.
