There are two new CAH decks being marketed by the organization's new PAC: one bearing Trump's likeness, the other with Hillary's. At the end of the sales period, Cards Against Humanity PAC will add up the total sales of each of the America Votes With Cards decks and "depending on the sales" give all the proceeds to the Hillary campaign.
CAH's Max Temkin explained his strategy:
"Trump takes himself terribly seriously, and that's hilarious. He is an egomaniac with zero self-discipline, and many campaign sources have reported that he spends large portion of his days brooding over bad press and shouting at his staff about it,” Temkin said. “I've been on the other end of that campaign ... working for distractible, thin-skinned, obsessive candidates and those elections are a nightmare. They hemorrhage staff and lose media cycles to trivia. Our goal is to drive Trump nuts with that stuff and capture as much of his attention as possible. Making jokes and doing funny things for attention is kind of our superpower, our team is really, really good at that."
Where’s my money going?
The funds that we take in will be split between direct, legal contributions to Hillary Clinton’s PAC, contributions to groups opposing Trump, and get out the vote programs in swing states.
Are these available internationally?
This promotion is only available in the United States. If you don’t currently live in the United States, good.
Why can’t I buy a pack for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein?
Just skip the middleman and vote for Trump.

Central to Piketty's thesis: that it's […]
Trump wants to roll back regulations that promote low-power light bulbs, even though at this point the industry has moved on and isn’t likely to do much in the way of modernizing incandescents. His interest is, as always, deeply personal: he thinks LED lights make him look orange. “The light bulb,” the president began. “People […]
