BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Stuart, it's not unusual to attack the sitting president. But maybe it is unusual to attack his greatest strength. 

STUART VARNEY (CO-HOST): Yes. I mean, how do you attack prosperity? How do you campaign against prosperity? "Oh, this is just terrible. We can't stand this. We have got to change this." Well the answer is that on the stage last night, the Democrat candidates attacked business. They attacked the rich. And they called Trump's economy unfair, that people are being left out of it. You could see on the stage last night this gradual, actually quite a sharp drift to the socialist left. They want a give away, a free for all. They want to give education, give health care, because capitalism won't give it to you, but socialism will.
