The Cards Against Humanity is back and this time they are targeting one of President Donald Trump’s campaign promises.
“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a $20 billion wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing,” the Cards for Humanity reads “So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.”

Cards Against Humanity is about as profane as it is popular. Consistently over the years the company has been upping the anti and this year the company has been gunning with its sights fixed on President Donald Trump. His policies in particular his highly xenophobic border wall has not been spared the scorn of Cards Against Humanity.
The company is asking people to pitch in with a 15 dollar donation in return Cards for Humanity will send people six surprises in the month of December. These include but are not limited to an illustrated map of the United States of America, a written pledge saying that they will fight against the planned Trump border wall and of course a batch of new cards for their paying supporters.

The campaign launched by Cards Against Humanity kicked off in dramatic fashion with a video that seemed to show the election of President Donald Trump as being somehow linked to the apocalypse and the demise of the universe.
“In the early part of the 21st century, Donald Trump had just been elected president of the United States,” a narrator can be heard in backdrop of a video that shows all of the major troubles that the United States is facing today including global warming, racism, the Klu Klux Klan, Racism, Blasts and the violation of the basic Human Rights that we all hold on to as some of our most cherished and hard earned freedoms.
“The American Empire was in decline . . . The country seemed to be hanging by a thread.”
The company rather predictably goes on to explain in the video that the only way the country could ever be saved from utter doom and destruction is with the “Cards Against Humanity Saves America” campaign.
This is not the first time however that the game has managed to court controversy. When one user asked Cards on their FAQ page that I don’t like that you’re getting political. Why don’t you just stick to card games?
So what did the company have to say? “Why don’t you stick to seeing how many Hot Wheels cars you can fit up your asshole?”
In the past the game has garnered controversy when makers of the game decided to destroy an artwork by Pablo Piccasso arguably one of the finest artists of the twentieth century.
Thankfully the work Tête de Faune, was saved as more than 71 percent of voters voted to save the work of art while the rest voted to have the work shredded and the pieces distributed among the voters. In total 150,000 votes were cast and the world breathed a sigh of relief as the work was saved and subsequently donated to museum in the city of Chicago, Illinois.
Now, the game thrives on being rude and the phrases on its cards have been known to be offensive. This latest endeavor sits well with their long term strategy. The company is also privately owned and does not have to cater to the desires of wary investors. The Cards Against Humanity people also do not rely on stores to push their product. This allows the company to do pretty much whatever it wants. In the internet age all publicity is good publicity and they seem to understand this very well.
