In solidarity with Women's Strike, Clinton will only work 23.9-hour day
WASHINGTON D.C. -- In defiance of Republican critics and corporate employers, President Hillary Rodham Clinton boldly joined the Women's Strike on Wednesday in a clear statement of feminist solidarity with the thousands of American women who stayed home from work to protest discrimination, misogyny, sexual violence, and unequal pay.
Clinton will only work 23 hours and 54 minutes today, according to the Twitter feed of White House Press Secretary Leslie Jones, who was not at work on Wednesday per Clinton's instructions.
While Clinton remained in the West Wing all day, when it came time for her to strike, she closed the Oval Office to staffers, placing a sign on the door that read, "Ovum Office: Gone Fishing." She proceeded to play solitaire.
During the six minutes Clinton made herself unavailable, Republicans shut down the government, causing Nancy Pelosi to text Clinton, "Gurl, time to save the world again. Without women, nothing would freaking get done."
