Cards Against Humanity Bought Land Along the Border So Trump Can’t Build a Wall
The year is 2017 and an independent card game maker from Chicago is trying to block the U.S. President’s biggest campaign promise.
On Tuesday, Cards Against Humanity, “the party game for horrible people,” announced a holiday promotion that will attempt to block President Trump from ever erecting a wall that separates the U.S. and Mexico.
“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans,” it reads on the Cards Against Humanity website. “He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. 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.”
According to a promotional video, Cards Against Humanity purchased “acres of land” along the U.S.-Mexico border. Customers could join the action and own a piece of the land for $15.
The promotion had completely sold out within a few hours. Those who were able to hand over their $15 on time will receive “six surprises” throughout the month of December. Their packages will include an illustrated map, detailing the location of the border land, a certificate that promises to fight any government efforts to build a wall and a pack of new cards.
Although the promotion is sold out, Cards Against Humanity promises that this is just day one of a six-day holiday promotion. Over the course of the campaign, the game aims to save America from “injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada,” according to their website.
Those who missed out on the promotion can still buy the regular game online for $25.
Cards Against Humanity did not immediately respond to request for comment.
