Chicago company buys land to block border wall.

Cards Against Humanity is a game known for one-upping fellow opponents, but the game itself has one-upped the President of the United States.

 

For the entire duration of his campaign, President Trump promised that he would have a wall built at the U.S./Mexico border.

 

On Nov. 14, the Chicago company announced they bought property along the border to block the President’s plans.

 

Customers were able to contribute to the wall-blocking project with a $15 purchase for surprise gift packages for the holiday season.

 

Within 24 hours, the program was sold out.

 

“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans,” said Cards Against Humanity on its 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.”

 

 Cards Against Humanity said that contributing to the land purchase and its legal defense was the first of six days of gifts that customers would be receiving in December.

 

“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.”

 

Customers who wanted to join in had to complete a survey that included personal questions and the query: “Who did you vote for in the 2016 election?”

 

The company didn’t say where the land is located. In a video describing the project, the company displayed footage of wild horses galloping across a desert, while saying they bought “acres” on the U.S./Mexico border.
