Is This News Item Fake?

After the Presidential debate on Thursday night, multi-billionaire and comb-over superstar Donald Trump told ESPN’s Arash Markazi that, if he were unsuccessful in obtaining the GOP’s nomination, he would devote his full efforts to resurrecting and being the commissioner of the defunct United States Football League, because “the NFL doesn’t know what it’s doing, it’s time for some competition, and their commissioner is so bad his name should be ‘Roger Badell.’”

Is this news item real?—or fake?
