American Horror Story: Cult kicks off on September 5th, and if you’ve been wondering how Donald Trump and the 2016 election tie into the plot, now we know!
“AHS” regular Sarah Paulson plays Ally, a woman living in Michigan who freaks out when Trump wins the election. It’s driving her so crazy that she sees CLOWNS everywhere, even though she’s going to a therapist.
Evan Peters, another series regular, plays Kai, a psycho who’s thrilled that Trump won and sets out to torture Ally. He gets a girl named Winter to take a job as a nanny to Ally’s son. But her REAL mission is to push Ally over the edge.
Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story: Freak Show even returns. Sort of.
As Kai says in the trailer, “If you get people scared enough, they will set the world on fire.”
