Well, at least they showed up for work.

Women anchors across broadcast and cable news showed their leftist support by wearing red to propagandize the so-called “Day without Women.”

This is different than International Women’s Day — which has been celebrated on March 8 for the last 100 years — to commemorate the movement for women’s rights.

This year, the day was hijacked by the Soros-sponsored organizers behind the Women’s March on Washington, the liberal leaning groups that took to the streets the day after President Trump’s inauguration to protest, some dressed as vaginas and uteruses, others wearing so-called pink “p—-y” hats, with handmade signs reading: “I’d call you a c—t, but you don’t have any depth or warmth.”

Classy stuff like that.

The leftist women’s organizers turned International Women’s Day into “A Day without Women,” encouraging women to stay home from work, wear red and refrain from purchasing, all for the purpose of showing solidarity with their fellow woman, or something like that.

“On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity,” their website reads.

So naturally, women anchors — who are not supposed to show any bias in their reporting — chose to stand in solidarity, and blessed the liberal movement by wearing red on Wednesday.

CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota wore a red top, CBS News’ Gayle King wore a red dress, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski donned a red turtleneck and blasted the women at Fox News’ “Outnumbered” — you know, the ones with “long legs and short skirts” (her words not mine) for being sexist.

Apparently, the women on “Outnumbered” mocked Ms. Brzezinski for her emotional coverage of Mr. Trump the day prior, when she said “we’re all really nervous” about Mr. Trump. Rightly so.

Joanna Coles, the chief content officer of Hearst Magazines, was so proud to see the anchors wear red, she tweeted: “Delighted to turn to @MSNBC and see 6 -6! – women commentators on @sruhle show incl @greta and @savannahGuthrie”

You see, “Today Show” host Savannah Guthrie is at least supposed to pretend she’s neutral, and Greta Van Susteren came from the right-leaning Fox News, so it was a shock to see her in a red shirt and white jacket.

I long for the day where mainstream were anchors weren’t activists — they simply reported the daily news. I guess that day is long over.
