Trump Asks About Dead Penn State Coach

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump confused crowd members during a Pittsburgh rally Wednesday when he asked about Penn State’s football coach who died in 2012. “How’s Joe Paterno?” he asked. “Are we gonna bring that back? Right?... How about that whole deal?” The famed football coach died in January 2012, just months after he was fired in the wake of a child sex-abuse scandal involving assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. A campaign spokesperson later clarified that Trump was referring to Paterno’s statue, which was removed from campus following the scandal.
