Hillary Clinton didn't partake when she visited Junior's Cheesecake in New York recently — a decision that caused a mild uproar and even some admiration for her restraint.

But lest you think it was some kind of strict dieting, Clinton explained in an interview with Stephen Colbert airing Monday night that she just didn't want to give the press something to make her look silly.

"It's awkward eating in front of the press," Clinton said. Asked why, she said: "Because they can get a funny shot. Something can drop out of your mouth, it can smear your face, anything ..."

It seems the Clintons' mistrust of the press truly runs deep.
