Hillary Clinton joined Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Monday for an interview at Carnegie Deli to discuss Bill Clinton’s veganism, being a subversive grandmother and the proper way to eat cheesecake.
The mostly food-centric chat began with Clinton denying that her husband was a snobby vegan and a discussion about the significant benefits of eating food-on-a-stick while walking around a fairground on the campaign trail.
Later, Colbert asked Clinton if she was worried that Republicans would be waiting with a meat slicer to cut through any of her policies should she be elected president. When Clinton assured him that Republicans would work with her, Colbert asked if he could place a $5 bet on it. Clinton grinned, “You could have even $10 or $15.”
Elsewhere, Clinton gave the host a thumbs-up on his Bill impression while chatting about how they spoiled their grandchild, and before Colbert dined-and-dashed, he showed the candidate how to eat cheesecake after she declined a slice in front of the press at Junior’s. After slicing a smidgen off the top, Colbert shoved the slice into his mouth and mumbled, “This is humanizing; people love this!”
