Seth Meyers says Trump is a ‘puppet’ of billionaires Robert and Rebekah Mercer

Billionaire hedge-fund mogul Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah are said to be the most influential donors in the Trump era, and as Seth Meyers explained on Tuesday’s Late Night, Steve Bannon is “using the help and money of wealthy donors like Robert and Rebekah Mercer to try to push Trump’s agenda by supporting fringe-right congressional and Senate candidates across the country.”

“The Mercers initially supported Ted Cruz, then — after realizing they were they were literally the only two people on earth who liked him — threw their money behind Trump, and they’ve been influencing the White House ever since,” Meyers explained.

“Now, with Trump in the White House, it seems the Mercers are feeling more emboldened than ever, but their targets aren’t Democrats like Hillary Clinton this time, it’s establishment Republicans,” Seth remarked, revealing that Bannon is using their influence to take on Mitch McConnell.
