    OK, I’m an evil person — and my scheming has paid off.

    On Friday I started hearing from friends about a fake story making the rounds about my allegedly filing for personal bankruptcy; I even got asked about the story by a reporter from Russian television, who was very embarrassed when I told him it was fake. But I decided not to post anything about it; instead, I wanted to wait and see which right-wing media outlets would fall for the hoax.

    And Breitbart.com came through!

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go give a lavishly paid speech to Friends of Hamas.
