The Sea Owl, a $75 million super-yacht owned by Wall Street titan Robert Mercer, has been docked in Seattle's Lake Union for over a week now. Mercer made his fortune writing code that predicts stock swings and he's used his vast wealth to put Donald Trump in the White House, back Steve Bannon's nativist political doings, and prop up the alt-right "news" site Breitbart. So, naturally, some protesters with Seattle Indivisible got in their own boat on Tuesday evening and floated over to give Mercer the business.
