In a piece of Donald Trump's Super Bowl interview with Bill O'Reilly, Trump described how he gets up in the morning, reads the news, and then "sees the lies" from the media.


Trump also notes that he only sleeps four or five hours per night.

"I read, I read the papers," Trump said about his morning routine. "I see what’s going on television, I take a look, I see the lies."

"You know, the lies," he repeated.

About the mainstream media, the president said: "They’ll take something that should be a good story - in fact sometimes I’ll say, oh this is going to be nice to read. And they will purposely totally change it away. It’s fake news."

O’REILLY: How many hours days are you working?

TRUMP: I am working long hours, long hours, right up till 12 o’clock, one o’clock in the morning --

O’REILLY: What time do you get up?

TRUMP: Five o’clock

O’REILLY: Alright, and you are working, you have to have breakfast and stuff…

TRUMP: Well I read, I read the papers, I see what’s going on television, I take a look, I see the lies.

You know the lies, that’s another thing.

I always got sort of good press. You know as a business guy I got good press.

O’REILLY: (laughs) I know.

TRUMP: I have never; I call it you know, fake news. Some of the networks and some of the papers it’s so dishonest – the level of dishonesty, where they’ll take a story that should be good, I know good from bad.

O’REILLY: Sure.

TRUMP: They’ll take something that should be a good story - in fact sometimes I’ll say oh this is going to be nice to read, I’ll say whoa. And they will purposely totally change it away. It’s fake news.

O’REILLY: Why are they doing that?

TRUMP: Well, because I am on the other side of the equation. I don’t think they’ve ever -- they did it to Reagan, but not as much.

O’REILLY: But why though, I don’t understand.

TRUMP: I don’t, I just think that it’s just the other side of the coin. It’s a - you know they call themselves progressive, which is a beautiful word, but it’s not true. When you look at what happens -

O’REILLY: Do you think they don’t like you?

TRUMP: I don’t know. I think they don’t like my, my - I don’t think they like anybody on our side.
