If you've been paying attention to the latest viral controversy this week, you know that the following audio says "Yanny," not "Laurel."

It says Yanny. Those who claim it says "Laurel" are spreading fake news.

Regardless, the Air Force sent a Yanny vs. Laurel reference out on their Twitter feed Thursday morning about the Taliban.

Yeah, because A-10s didn't hurt their feelings. Much. For some reason I couldn't cut and paste the offending tweet, so you gotta go to the linky thing for the article.

General Eisenhower: “It has come to my attention that troops under my command have made derogatory references to the private anatomy of Chancellor Hitler. Mocking those who are differently abled is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. On behalf of all Allied forces, I extend my most heartfelt apologies to the Chancellor for this unfortunate incident, along with my personal assurances that it will not be repeated.”

I fuind it interesting that depending on which source e I hear different things. on the Trump/WH one I hear Yanny. On the Air Force one attached here I hear Laurel. I think someone is sending out different files and starting tip stuff.
