About

Sick of the swamp? Tired of the treason? Fed up with the phonies? Well! We have the cure for what ails you! 

The Deplorable Deck is a 54-card poker deck, featuring hand-drawn illustrations by nationally syndicated political cartoonist, Brian Duffy.

Printed on casino-quality, bee card stock, the cards are rich in detail and serve as a reminder that, even in today’s political climate, it's okay to laugh at the "King"!  The Founders would be proud of you!  Believe us.  Bigly.

PLEDGE NOW  and snag a deck or two for you, your friends, your family and maybe even your weird conservative uncle that you only see at the holidays! The Deplorable Deck is the PERFECT size for stocking stuffers!

  • Each suit represents a faction of Deplorables close to Trump.
  • Trump once  famously quipped that "maybe" we should consider a president for life, so he's the king of all four suits. 
  • A conventional deck has three face cards per suit.  Since this administration is anything but, the 10 and the Ace are face cards too, allowing for an unconventional Royal "Flush".

These cards aren’t just mere portraits of satirical awesomeness.  Look closer and you will find  "Easter eggs" that add whimsy to each scene, resulting in a  snap shot of what was happening at that time in this presidency.  Take a look at the Queen of Spades, KellyAnne Conway.  She was one of the first cards we created--her design took place early in the term. Here are the secrets of her card.  The rest are for you to discover on your own.  

**PLEASE NOTE** Artwork is not finalized.  This may result in slight variations between what is pictured and the finished product.  Check back often for updates. 

  • The card back issymbolically-rich, featuring mirror image seals set against a chain link fence background surrounded by a gold leaf border.
  • As with the other artwork, the seal includes Easter eggs throughout.
  • The number card layout consists of original hand-drawn pips and numbers with  The Deplorable Deck logo  watermarked in the center. 

This deck will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company recognized for the highest quality standards possible:

  • Traditionally cut Poker-sized cards
  • Casino-Grade Bee, refined card stock for optimal handling
  • Air Cushion Finish ideal for playability  

Still in development.  The tuck box art will stand out - no one will mistake this deck of cards for any other!

Check back often for updates.     

The Deplorable Deck card coverincludes the art art from our Challenge Coin - the Deplorable Deck logo and our satirical "Great Seal".  Whether you use it in your weekly card game or as a display piece, this coin will make an attractive addition to any collection.

Please Note: Digital renderings pending final artwork.

Risks and challenges

As first-time "KickStarters" we have run up against a few walls, not the least of which is members of Congress and the Administration began dropping like flies. We lost Flynn practically before he started. Spicey and the Mooch? We miss what their caricatures would ahve added to The Deplorable Deck, but they may make a future appearance if this campaign is successful. In addtion to contending with D.C.'s revolving door, we experienced managing the creative process for the first time. We believe all of this will culminate in a smoother roll out once production and fulfillment begins.

We hope you enjoy the cards as much as we have enjoyed creating them. Thank you for your support!
