The hosts of Fox & Friends asserted on Wednesday that the Democratic plan to strengthen the social safety net would be "a gravy train... just a trough."


Following Tuesday night's first Democratic presidential debate, Fox News host Steve Doocy argued that "everything is going to be a gravy train. Just a trough. Open it up."

"Well the kids like it, right?" Ingraham agreed. "All the kids in college, like, yeah, we can keep playing foosball and hanging out after college because we're all going to -- they're going to take care of us."

As Ingraham spoke, Fox News displayed a list titled, "Freebies Promised During Democratic Debate."

Co-host Brian Kilmeade read off some of the items: "Childhood education, higher minimum wage, public college, public family leave, health care, health care for children, and in-state tuition for illegals, which they were cheering for!"
