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