Huckabee gives few clues about Israel souvenirs

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) is playing coy about what gifts he has in store for the gang at “Fox & Friends.”

Huckabee returns Thursday from a trip to Israel, according to Fox, and made a promise on Monday to host Steve Doocy to pick out the perfect tchotchkes while he’s abroad.

When Doocy asked on-air what his plans were while he was in the Holy Land, Huckabee replied, “I’m also here to get some souvenirs for you and [co-hosts Brian Kilmeade and Molly Line]. And I’ll bring those home later on.”

Doocy and Huckabee then went on a souvenir spiel:

DOOCY: Now, listen, we can tell you when you just buy this stuff at the airport. You have to actually go into the — into the town itself and buy some stuff. No more I went ...

HUCKABEE: Well, there’s some great stuff to be had. Just send me your list, Steve, and I’ll promise to bring it back.

DOOCY: All right. Sure you will. All right.

When ITK checked in with the traveling Fox host to see what he would be buying for his friends at “Fox & Friends,” Huckabee said, “A little surprise! It will help them to pray better and to have more fun.”
