The average salary for men in the White House is around $104,000, while for women it's around $83,000, according to CNN's look at the White House's annual report to Congress. Half the men working at the White House make $115,000 or more annually, while half the women $70,629 or less.

Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, et al would like us to focus on the "real issues" like the job numbers and economy and not the bad tweets, so how's this? For those who are unconvinced that this gap doesn't mean much, the NWLC reports that it causes women to earn roughly $10,000 less in median earnings per year.
