Fox News host Brian Kilmeade is claiming that he didn’t know he gave $600 to the Trump campaign by buying Make America Great Again ornaments after the 2016 election as Christmas gifts.

According to a Tuesday Hill report, he said he was looking for something “cool and unique” to give to his friends and family after the election.

Despite the fact that he purchased the pricy gifts through the Trump campaign website, and had to fill in his occupation at the time of purchase as part of federal election law, the “Fox and Friends” host insists that he did not understand the implications.

“There’s no secret, there’s no ‘ah ha’ moment,” Kilmeade told the Hill. “There’s, ‘I bought ornaments two years ago before Christmas for people that like Donald Trump.'”
