Cards Against Humanity, the notoriously politically incorrect party game that encourages players to be as offensive as possible, is taking aim at Donald Trump’s border wall in its latest holiday special aptly titled “Cards against Humanity Saves America.”
Tuesday, Cards Against Humanity launched a new website dedicated to its holiday campaign, which encourages people to send the company $15 dollars in exchange for six surprises throughout the month of December. “It’s 2017, and the government is being run by a toilet,” the website reads. “We have no choice: Cards Against Humanity is going to save America.”
The company also detailed its plan to stop Trump’s border wall, which the president made a staple of his 2016 presidential campaign.
“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans,” 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.”
Cards Against Humanity has historically released topical marketing campaigns, including over the summer when it marketed a pink version of the game to women that retailed for $5 more than the original game. In its FAQ, the company addressed its previous pledge not to “do one of these complicated holiday promotions again.”
“We’re liars, just like the president,” Cards Against Humanity explains, noting it’s saving American from “injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada.”
As for whether the game is suddenly switch gears to become “politically correct now,” the company insists, “we’re just being regular correct.”

Teenage boy’s family objects to ProPublica publication of video detailing his death
The family of a teenage boy whose death ProPublica investigated has objected to the publication of a surveillance video that documented his last hours.
Yesterday, ProPublica published a detailed account of failings and missteps by the U.S. Border Patrol, in whose custody 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez died. As part of the story, ProPublica published several moments from a lengthy surveillance video in which Carlos struggles on the floor of his cell and then stops moving. The video, which had not been shared with Congress or the public, contradicts the government’s claim that Carlos was discovered as a result of a “welfare check.’’ It shows that his cellmate awoke, saw his motionless body, and summoned Border Patrol agents.
