The latest iteration of FX’s “American Horror Story” will focus on fear stemming from Trump’s electoral victory, according to the latest season seven trailer.
The trailer, released in late August, features an election night meltdown as it creepily asks, “What is the thing that scares you the most?”
The shot cuts to a group of well-dressed women in Michigan acting shocked when Trump is announced as the 2016 election winner, including Sarah Paulson’s latest character in the series, who screams “oh my god!” and puts her head in her hands.
Meanwhile, a blue-haired freak seems ecstatic about Trump’s win and begins aggressively humping the television.
“Since election night, it has just all been getting so much worse,” Paulson’s character tells her therapist as a montage shows her becoming increasingly anxious and frightened by visions of killer clowns.
Unfortunately for Paulson, no one seems to believe that the clowns she is seeing are real, as the blue-haired Trump supporter can be heard saying, “if you get people scared enough they will set the world on fire.”
Previous seasons of AHS featured ghosts, witches, deformed carnival workers, and demonic hotel guests, but apparently Season 7’s fear will all stem from Trump becoming president.
