Guys I don’t like to use clickbait in my titles. It’s not fun and I don’t like to mislead you my fine reader. By the way since we are breaking the fourth wall, let me just say how beautiful you look today.
Anyways this is at least the most cringeworthy thing you will see all week. Remember when the Mannequin Challenge was a thing? It was all the craze and even Hillary Clinton got in on the action.
The problem was, they did it wrong. And that’s where we find ourselves today. As the mannequin challenge was to November of 2016, we now have #LaurelVsYanny in May of 2018. You thought I would compare it to the dress, but nope not this time!
I hear Laurel, my girlfriend hears Yanny and you won’t guess what Donald Trump’s answer was.
I really wish that was a joke but sadly it was not.

I hope you were at a loss of words as was I, thankfully we have Twitter to voice our thoughts:
Had all this time to create this stupid video but no time to address the issues facing our nation. Ridiculous

That video was almost as white as it was unfunny.

“The White House did the laurel/yanny video and Donald Trump literally said ‘I hear covfefe.'”
Wow I really hate him.”
If you haven’t weighted in on the debate, take a second to now:
Alright now that you have had time to process a little bit of that. Let’s take a look at some of the notable people’s responses:
It’s so clearly Laurel! [Cackle]
Kelly Anne Conway:
It’s Laurel, but I could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
random dude: Sarah, it’s been reported you hear ‘Laurel.’ How do you respond?
Sarah: Clearly you’re getting your information from CNN because that’s Fake News. Ahhhh, all I hear is Yanny.
I honestly don’t know who this dude is, but I didn’t really care. I just thought his face was too crazy not to screen shot:
It’s, it’s Laurel America. DEFINITELY HASHTAG LAUREL
And of course ladies and gentleman, your President of the United States:
I hear covfefe.
Just when everyone had stopped ironically saying covfefe (no spellcheck, that’s what I meant) Trump had to bring it back.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

The answer is still nobody, since it’s not a word…
When I had first seen that this was a thing, I figured eh probably some Late Night Show spoof. That’s something Stephen Colbert would do, right? I guess the actual show writers just have to sit back and wait for things like this to fall into their lap.
