So now Ryan Murphy has stated, to EW that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will be portrayed in the new season of American Horror Story. He had this to say
I think people literally think Sarah Paulson is playing Hillary Clinton and I wanted to clarify that that is not true. Horror Story is always about allegory, so the election is allegory. It’s our jumping off point. It is about the election we just went through and what happened on that night and the fallout of that night, which to many people, from all sides of the camps is a horror story. And you know, that show is always so fun when it’s about the zeitgeist and what we’re doing now.
It starts on election night is all I’ll say. It’s very scary, that night, for many people. It’s fun, you will like it. It’s really a season that will have a lot of people interested and I think there’s something for everybody in that season
