    Donald Trump Asks About Joe Paterno, Confusing Crowd in Pittsburgh

    PITTSBURGH — It seems that Donald Trump may not know Joe Paterno died. Speaking to a crowd of supporters in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Trump asked about Joe Paterno and said, “How’s Joe Paterno? We gonna bring that back?” Paterno died in 2012. Perhaps he was referring to the Paterno statue, but that didn’t stop many people from Tweeting their confusion over the comments. Bring Paterno back? @realdonaldtrump has odd expectations of his abilities, and responsibilities, as president. — Holly Swanson […]

    Trump Truck Stuck

    PITTSTON — A truck advertising Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump got stuck on the Water Street Bridge connecting Pittston and West Pittston Wednesday afternoon. Local businessman Bob Bolus donated this rig to the Trump campaign so it can go around and advertise for Trump. It appears the driver made too sharp a turn onto the bridge in Luzerne County and got stuck. @WNEP Pittston, pa pic.twitter.com/jIMjfT3jPS — Eric Smith (@edstray81) March 30, 2016
