On Saturday night, Donald Trump, Peter Thiel and other Trump cabinet members attended a swanky costume party on Long Island hosted by Robert Mercer, the co-chief executive officer of Renaissance Technologies. The theme of the party, which Mercer throws annually, was heroes and villains.

Thiel went as Hulk Hogan, sources told Bloomberg. Trump went as himself.

If you remember, Thiel secretly funded Hulk Hogan’s invasion of privacy lawsuit against Gawker Media, which ultimately led to the company’s bankruptcy.

The party was Trump’s latest stop on his Thank You tour, which he kicked off on Thursday with a rally in Ohio.
