FOR REAL: Trump to Attend Neocon "Villains & Heroes" Costume Party Tonight

President-elect Donald Trump is expected to attend a lavish costume party on Saturday night on Long Island hosted by his biggest donors, the neocon Mercer family, two sources with knowledge of the plans told POLITICO.

The theme of the party is “Villains and Heroes,” according to a Bloomberg article, which reported that invitations featured “a sword-wielding centurion crouching in an ancient ruin, facing down a serpent-haired Medusa.”

The family patriarch, hedge fund tycoon Robert Mercer, donated $2 million to a pro-Trump super PAC that came to be run by his daughter Rebekah Mercer, who controls the family’s political operations.


Rebekah Mercer played a pivotal role in persuading Trump to bring on three close allies of hers to run the campaign — incoming White House senior counselor Steve Bannon and top campaign officials Kellyanne Conway and David Bossie.

The family has also donated to John Bolton efforts.

Rebekah now sits on Trump’s transition team executive committee.

Bannon is expected at the party, according to a source familiar with the plans, as is Conway, according to Bloomberg’s report.

UPDATE

It looks like Kelley Conway is going as Superwoman and Trump as an intellectual.

  1. The Mercers donated to every republican on stage, including your buddy Ben Shapiros' constitutional hero Ted Cruz. Rebekah brought on Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway - awesome. Bullseye. We need more Mercers.
