Here's How Cards Against Humanity Is Making It Hard for Trump to Build a Wall

April 28,2024 by Matthew Bell

Anyone who has played the game Cards Against Humanity knows it's a politically incorrect few hours of fun. Yet, the six-year-old game has recently turned to the actual political arena with an announced plan to “save America” in a new holiday promotion. The Chicago-based company has taken it upon itself to become involved in a very divisive social issue: the Trump administration's plan to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

"Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans," the company said in a statement. "He is so afraid that he wants to build a $20 billion wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing." And how does a card company plan to disrupt the proposed $20-billion wall? By purchasing acres of land that sit directly on the U.S. border with Mexico. In doing so, the company is thwarting the government's attempt to construct the wall. What's more, Cards Against Humanity has "retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive for the wall to get built," the company explained.

The company intended to raise money for the land purchase by asking their customers, or people against the Trump administration (or a combination of the two), to contribute 15 dollars. In return, they would be sent "six America-saving surprises right to your doorstep." What those surprises are, the company wouldn't say (as that kind of defeats the purpose of a surprise). And for those who supported the 45th president? "If you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out," they explained in a statement. The outreach campaign obviously worked, as by early Wednesday morning the promotion had sold out. Yet, hopefully other companies will follow suit and begin their own campaigns to stand up against injustice.
