Everyone’s favorite flippant party game is officially throwing their hat into the political arena. The popular card game company recently launched the “America Votes” campaign and is selling Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump-themed decks of cards.
On their website, Cards Against Humanity calls for political action by encouraging American voters to spend their hard-earned cash on a promotion that will make their voices heard before the November election. Each candidate’s pack costs $4. When the promotion is over, Cards Against Humanity will crunch the numbers and donate the proceeds to the campaign of the candidate with the most packs sold — under one strict condition.
“Today, we’re letting America choose between two new expansion packs about either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
“At the end of this promotion, Cards Against Humanity will tally up the sales of both packs, and depending on which pack gets more support, we will donate all the money in support of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”
Cards Against Humanity will split the proceeds with contributions to Clinton’s PAC, groups opposing Trump, and get out the vote programs in swing states.
Cards Against Humanity also produced the video below which is intended to inspire all Americans to vote with their dollars before heading to the polls this fall. On Friday evening, the website says Clinton raised $15,000 trumping Trump’s $14,000.
One would think that after Trump used the Republican debate on Fox News as the perfect time and place to talk about the state of his manhood, Cards Against Humanity would be all-in for Making America Great Again! Wrong.
On the promotion’s website, Cards Against Humanity gushes over Clinton’s résumé and describes Trump as a huge powerful businessman.
“He is a powerful CEO who wears three suits at once,” the card company’s website says. “All across America, buildings scream his name, ‘TRUMP! TRUMP!’ He always knows what time it is. Donald Trump is a huge man who lives in a golf course.”
Maybe there’s a chance the company will rescind their endorsement after Trump basically made a “yo mama” joke at a rally in Erie, Pa. on Friday.

But what about Gary Johnson and Jill Stein? Cards Against Humanity prefers their customers not vote for a third party candidate.
“Just skip the middleman and vote for Trump,” the card company’s website states.
If this information makes anyone angry, Cards Against Humanity encourages all political views and various opinions sent to EntitledWhining@CardsAgainstHumanity.com.
“If you don’t currently live in the United States,” reads a message on the website, “good.”
The special election-themed cards are not available outside of the U.S.

Clinton has yet to respond to the endorsement of Cards Against Humanity. The card company’s endorsement isn’t really that surprising considering they recently promoted the Donald Trump Bug-Out Bag. Cards Against Humanity sold out their $25 duffel bags stuffed with survival items that they claim will come in handy if Trump’s elected president.
The duffel bag includes a can of beans to eat around the fire, a harmonica to pass the time, and a laminated card with Spanish phrases including “I am a refugee.”
“All 10,000 bags have sold out. When Donald Trump is elected President, you will perish in the wasteland. Sorry.”
If the Donald Trump Bug-Out Bags are offensive in any way, Cards Against Humanity welcomes all individuals to call their hotline for complaints at (312) 756-0834.
Putting aside Cards Against Humanity’s hilarious marketing campaigns, at least the company’s transparent about who they support, right?
