Cards Against Humanity, which describes itself as "a party game for horrible people", has been praised on social media for its "brilliant" stand against US President Donald Trump's controversial US-Mexico border plan.

The creators of the irreverent, rude, and hilarious card game announced last year that they bought land on the US-Mexico border to block President Trump from building his wall, as a part of a cheeky holiday marketing campaign, but the initiative has now gone viral after actress and outspoken Trump critic Alyssa Milano reminded the president on Twitter today

On the company's website, under its "Cards Against Humanity Saves America" initiative, it said more than 150,000 people donated to kickstart the incredible troll of the president.

"Right now, the federal government is working to pour billions of your tax dollars into building a wall between the United States and Mexico, despite the fact that walls have been militarily obsolete since the advent of gunpowder," it explains.


"Last month, 150,000 people paid us $15 to save America with six days of incredible stunts and surprises."

For "Day One", it said, "we used some of the money to purchase a plot of vacant land on the US/Mexico border and retain a law firm specialising in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for Trump to build his preposterous wall."

Customers who wanted to join in had to complete a survey that included questions such as who they voted for in the 2016 election.

To explain their holiday marketing campaign Cards Against Humanity launched a parody documentary on YouTube.

They even hired lawyers.

"The whole legal process can take quite a long time β€” who knows, maybe longer than the current president will be in office? For however long it takes, we are ready for a protracted resistance to any attempts by the government to build a wall on this land," the Cards Against Humanity's lawyers, Graves Dougherty Heardon & Moody, who specialise in eminent domain, said.

"We will fight in court at every stage, using every available legal tool to make sure that the government follows all required procedures, respects the constitutional rights that safeguard private property and due process of law, and pays the just compensation required by the Fifth Amendment."

With characteristic humour from its team of comedy writers, the website also says that on the purchased land it will answer Trump's idea of using "12th-century military technology to protect our country from Mexican invaders" by building a medieval catapult designed to destroy walls.


"For legal reasons, we are not threatening to destroy US government property with our glorious medieval siege engine. We cannot possibly overstate that we are not going to crush Trump's twenty-billion-dollar wall with our totally badass trebuchet. But if we wanted to, we could. But we won't. But we could."

The entire Twitterverse, including other celebrities, have since also weighed in after Milano's tweet garnered thousands of retweets and hundreds of thousands of likes, praising Cards Against Humanity as "the best company in the world".

The website also promises that if Trump proceeds with his plans to actually build the proposed border wall, Cards Against Humanity will "be a big pain in the ass".

The card company explained its goal is to "make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built."

The Chicago-based company did not say exactly where the land is located but describes the land as "acres" and in website video shows horses galloping and cactuses in a large section of desert.

The company is known for playing pranks and has also applied to trademark the phrase "fake news", presumably so that Donald Trump would have to stop using it.
