This Is Yuuuge: Trumped Up Playing Cards, Satirical Deck Honoring Trump White House Departees, Launches Kickstarter Campaign

What game would President Trump never have to worry about playing with his tiny hands? The answer is Trumped Up Playing Cards, a deck honoring the first people to leave the White House since the Trump presidency began. Its creators have turned to Kickstarter to launch a crowdfunding campaign in support of the deck’s mass-scale production.

“We were inspired after realizing just how many people were leaving the administration. With so much “fake news” trumpeting these departees as ‘fallen heros’, we knew that there had to be a better way to cut through the noise and educate the public. In a climate of hateful and divisive discourse, we leveraged humor and satire to make Trumped Up Playing Cards approachable. Our deck features first-class artwork and informative content delivered with levity on high-quality cards, designed with maximum playability in mind. Beyond making people laugh we hope to foster a candid dialogue and open communication between people of differing viewpoints.” Xander Kotsatos, Eccentric LLC Media Representative. “They’re also pretty funny when you get your hands on them!”

The Trumped Up Playing Cards deck features prominent officials that have found themselves starring, at one time or another, in the turbulent saga that is the Trump administration as well as well-researched, comedic blurbs outlining their departure.  H.R. McMaster was one of our favorites:

“Imagine if your boss sent out a company-wide email about your firing before telling you themselves. That’s essentially what happened to McMaster, who found out he was canned through the media. Adding fuel to the fire, The Donald then called him “gruff and condescending”. Sad!”

Former FBI director James Comey; former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer; former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, and, of course, President Trump himself are also among the Trumped Up Playing Card lineup.

Each card was meticulously illustrated by New Jersey cartoonist, Daniel Hilton. “It was a two-month process,” he said, “with hundreds of revisions to get each card perfect.” Each illustration is a masterpiece in its own right and will be printed as such on high-quality stock. Then, shipped free of charge to all Kickstarter backers across the United States.

Liz Ziser, Eccentric LLC Media Liaison, adds, “We want to add some humor to this bleak political landscape. If we can break down the walls (pun intended) and get people motivated, talking, and voting, then we’ve succeeded in our mission. This is undoubtedly one of the most divided periods in American government, and we believe humor is something we can all vote for.”

Campaign supporters can claim their own deck of Trumped Up Playing Cards for 20-33% off retail until Tuesday, November 6th, at 11:59 PM PST.

Get ready! We’re making America play again!
