In a campaign where there are way too many gaffes and blunders to mention, Donald Trump may have surpassed infamous gaffe master Joe Biden in the “open mouth and insert foot” department.
It’s simply hard to fathom that the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor would be this utterly ignorant and willing to reveal it — at a campaign rally no less.
At a campaign rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, the real estate tycoon was attempting to pander to the audience by talking about legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, who died over four years ago, in January of 2012.
“I know a lot about Pennsylvania, and it’s great. How’s Joe Paterno?” Trump asked the audience. “We gonna bring that back? How about that whole deal?” Trump asked.
The ridiculous gaffe immediately brought earned mockery on Twitter, Donald Trump’s favorite tool to levy personal attacks against anyone who disagrees with him or pinpricks his massive, yet fragile ego.
Asking how Joe Paterno is doing is something “Uncle Joe” Biden would do. Is Trump the populist Right’s Uncle Don?

Trump promised to “bring back” Joe Paterno tonight in Pittsburgh…
The above statement is not sarcasm concerning Trump’s idiocy but a fact

Joe Biden must be applauding to see someone other than he mastering the art of the gaffe. There’s a new gaffe master in town and his name is Donald Trump. Remember, he has the “best words” and a really “good brain.”
