‘Cards Against Humanity’ is a card game that every university student should have played at least once in their education. With the description being “a party game for horrible people”, it is their wit, hilarity and unconventional comments that leave players feeling either incredibly awkward or in fits of laughter.
However, recently they have proven to be witty and ballsy outside of the party game world. Last weekend near the town Dearborn in the state of Michigan, a billboard was posted with the statement: “Donald Trump, he can’t read this, but he is afraid of it” written from right to left in Arabic.

The billboard, which cost $4,850 to make, was funded by the Nuisance Committee, the creators of ‘Cards Against Humanity’. Melissa Harris, the spokeswoman for the company stated recently; “We came up with it because we believe that Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric is not based on reality. It’s based in fear…And we think that irrational fear is what’s driving his anti-immigrant message.”
The satirical and effective propaganda will stay up until after the 8th of November, which is Election Day in America. There are also two other billboards dotted around America with the same theme and include website URLs such as trumpisscared.org, trumpisnotateamplayer.com and trumpdoesntpaytaxes.com.

Nuisance Committee have included two fund-raising packs, one focused on Trump and the other on the Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton. As of today, the Clinton had raised $210,928 while the Trump-themed ones had raised $200,716. Nevertheless, according to the website, the company “will donate all the money in support of Hillary Clinton.”
