Hillary Clinton Fully Understands Your Struggle To Get Ready In The Morning

Hillary Clinton knows just how annoying it is to waste time in front of the mirror every morning perfecting your "work-appropriate" look.

On Monday during a Facebook question and answer session, Hillz responded to one woman who asked for her thoughts on the "hair and makeup tax" women face -- wherein they need to spend far much more time than their male counterparts making themselves look presentable each day.

Libby Brittain, the young professional woman who asked the question, wrote that the issue might "seem fluffy," but Clinton acknowledged that the extra time women put in to getting ready is a challenge she faces, too.

"You're preaching to the choir," Clinton told Brittain in her Facebook reply.

While she didn't share any concrete advice, it's reassuring to know that even a presidential candidate -- glam squads and all -- is so over wasting time in the makeup chair.
