Update: Daily Intel points out that Rick Perry's birth name is James. So, Trump is technically correct, maybe he got lucky?
Every time Donald dines with a GOP candidate, something has to happen. And, via Politico's Ben Smith, we learned that Trump's September 14th date with Rick Perry was no exception. In an interview with The Street the day after having dinner with the Texas governor, Trump referred to him as "Jim Perry" when asked about the evening. And it wasn't one of those slip-ups where he corrected himself a bit later in the clip, Trump just went on talking about how he's still considering jumping in the presidential race if the conditions are just right. In his defense, maybe Trump was thinking of James Perry--the Trump Entertainment CEO who was fired in 2007.
