When brainstorming potential candidates for saving America, the manufacturers of a vulgar party game probably aren’t the first people that spring to mind.
However, that’s exactly what the folks at Cards Against Humanity are planning on doing and they’ve already made their first move.
The game, in which players match black and white word cards together, forming hilarious and often deeply offensive statements, has gained fans around the world, but now it’s founders are turning their sights towards politics.
Not content with dominating the politically-incorrect card game marketplace, Cards Against Humanity has taken aim at US president Donald Trump, who it deems ‘a toilet’ and has vowed to stop him in his tracks.
For its holiday promotion, somewhat unimaginatively entitled Cards Against Humanity Saves America, the game is aiming to put a spanner in the works for Donald’s Trump’s promise of a wall on the border between the US and Mexico.
In order to do this, the company has purchased a plot of land on the border, making it very tricky for Trump to honour his pledge.
In a post on Twitter, Cards Against Humanity said: “The government is being run by a toilet. We have no choice… we are going to save America and attempt to keep our brand relevant in 2017
“Join in and for $15 we’ll send you six America-saving surprises this December: http://CardsAgainstHumanitySavesAmerica.com”
Naturally, the game-makers are keen for people to chip in for their cause, promising to deliver ‘six America-saving surprises’ straight to the door of everyone who donates.

“It will be fun, it will be weird, and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out,” the company’s statement reads.
On the Cards Against Humanity website, there’s even more information about the cause.
“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans,” a passage on the site reads.
“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.”
The statement goes on to detail just what exactly those ‘America-saving surprises’ mentioned earlier are’, just in case you were wondering.
“On Day 1, all Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards, and a few other surprises.”
At last count, there were just shy of 80,000 chances left to donate, but they’re going fast. So, if you want to get involved, you’ll have to head over to the website and get your name down before it’s too late.
