Video of the Day: Wayne Newton Endorses Both Bachmann and Romney

After Tuesday night's debate, singer Wayne Newton appeared with his arm around Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) for an interview with Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren, offering his endorsement to the "beautiful lady" and possibly making a few feminists cringe.

"I will support this beautiful lady as long as she wants to go," Newton said. "I do believe that we're seeing just a little bit of improvement, but it's going to take electing this beautiful lady as president for things to really change."

"That's pretty hot," Van Susteren remarked.

Curiously, Newton also reportedly endorsed Mitt Romney on Tuesday night.
