The day after U.S. President Donald Trump learned that a gossipy White House tell-all included quotes that his son was "treasonous" and his daughter "dumb as a brick," Trump's mysterious billionaire backers Robert and Rebekah Mercer did a very rare thing and publicly fired back.

Rebekah Mercer issued a statement about Trump's former strategist and Mercer family friend Steve Bannon — the source of the offending comments — that sawed him off like a gangrenous limb.

"My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months, and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements," it said.
