“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans.”
You might remember Cards Against Humanity as that fun, raunchy card game you played in college while getting tipsy with your besties. Well, they’re not all about making you decide if not wearing pants happens in abundance up in heaven.
The company is taking a stand against President Trump’s border wall by purchasing a plot of land on the U.S.-Mexico border. They even claim to have retained a law firm that specializes in eminent domain. This means that Cards Against Humanity is preparing for a long, expensive battle to slow down any progress the Trump administration makes in building the border wall.
The promotion had 150,000 slots available for people who wanted to pitch in $15 to partake in slowing down the proposed wall.
“There’s no time for questions—now is the time to act,” reads the website. “You give us $15, and we’ll send six America-saving surprises right to your doorstep. It will be fun, it will be weird and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out.”
All the slots sold out the same day the promotion went live. This means that Cards Against Humanity made $2,250,000 in one day through the campaign.

Who knew that finding a way to stall the border wall would be so popular?
Some people are triggered by the announcement.

But the joke is on them since Cards Against Humanity already got the money from that deck so they’re literally just burning their own money.
The FAQ section of the Cards Against Humanity website is getting the most attention for their comedic and troll-y answers.

And now, everyone is asking what else the company can do besides block the wall.
Cards Against Humanity purchased land to help prevent Trump from building the wall. Awesome! Maybe they can help to get him out of office.
