Donald Trump's Joe Paterno meltdown moment in Pittsburgh

As we well know by now, it doesn't matter where it counts what kind of nonsense this guy spouts.

Trump later clarified his comments through a spokesperson, who told CNN's Ashley Killough that the presidential candidate was referring to the bronze statue of Joe Paterno that formerly stood in front of Beaver Stadium “that they melted down.” 
The statue was taken down in 2012 in connection with the Sandusky scandal, and stored “in a secure location.” As Dan McQuade at PhillyMag notes, the notion that the statue was melted down appears to stem from an Onward State blog post from April Fool’s Day last year.
