Michele Bachmann fawns over Newt Gingrich for the cameras
Michele Bachmann harshly criticized Newt Gingrich when they were competing for the Republican nomination. That didn't stop Bachmann from fawning over Gingrich when he approached her at the convention centre's "radio row" on Wednesday.
When she spotted him, she affectionately called him "Newtie," which Newt Gingrich should never be called, and later deemed him "the smartest guy on the planet." In between, they talked about Ann Romney's Welsh cakes.
Bachmann had nice things to say about both Ann and Gingrich's wife Callista. The video:
