At a rally in Pittsburgh, PA, Donald Trump asked how former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno is doing, and promised to bring him back. The problem is that Paterno died in 2012. Paterno coached the rival Penn State Nittany Lions. It's likely that Pitt fans don’t want Paterno to be brought back in either zombie or human form. The football teams are set to renew their bitter rivalry in 2016, and the return of Paterno would most certainly freak everybody out, and possibly put a crimp in those plans. Trump’s lack of preparation is only matched by his ignorance. Even if Paterno was alive, mentioning him in Pittsburgh would have been an amateur politician’s rookie mistake. Mentioning people who are dead, and then promising to bring them back is a complete disaster of a gaffe for the Republican frontrunner.
