American Horror Story - season 7 - 2016 election -

“American Horror Story” season 7 will be Red, White and Orange as it takes audiences back in time to relive the highly divisive 2016 election, but who will play Donald Trump?

Ryan Murphy, creator of hit-shows like “Nip/Tuck” and “Glee,” makes a shocking revelation about the upcoming seventh season of another one of his fan-favored creations “American Horror Story”… and it’s terrifying. Continue reading after the jump to find out what “American Horror Story” season 7 will be about.



While on a recent episode of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” host Andy Cohen probes Murphy about the upcoming season of “American Horror Story” when Murphy broke the news.

“The season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election we just went through. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.”

Cohen, with an almost bewildered look, follows up by asking Murphy if there would be an actual Donald Trump character to which Murphy replied, “Uh, maybe.” Yes, you heard it right. The next season of “American Horror Story” will be about the 2016 election and road to Donald Trump’s presidency.

Given that each season the series revolves around new characters and locations, and typically have some subtle satanic tie in, this upcoming season adapted from the real-life events of the 2016 election will be more than interesting. The question becomes who will play Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and perhaps most importantly, who will play Donald Trump?

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
