Trump, when asked aboard Air Force One if it's time to pitch Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore overboard, after the Republican was accused of pursuing and touching teenage girls:

"I've been with you folks, so I haven't gotten to see too much. And believe it or not, even when I'm in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television. I know they like to say that. People that don't know me, they like to say I watch television — people with fake sources. You know, fake reporters, fake sources."

"But I don't get to watch much television. Primarily because of documents. I'm reading documents. A lot. And different things. I actually read much more — I read you people much more than I watch television."

Go deeper: Trump loves watching TV and he's the producer of his own epic film.
