'American Horror Story: Cult' Is Not About Donald Trump Or Hillary Clinton

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is explaining that Cult really is not about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, rather, about the aftermath of the election and how that affected people.

“Our feeling is that everybody lost their sh*t after the election — Republican, Democrat — and everybody’s still losing their sh*t, and nobody’s really figured out from either side where to put those feelings,” Ryan told THR. “There is no real discussion. Everybody’s still at each other’s throats, you’re either on one side or you’re on the other. The season really is not about Trump, it’s not about Clinton. It’s about somebody who has the wherewithal to put their finger up in the wind and see that that’s what’s happening and is using that to rise up and form power, and using people’s vulnerabilities about how they’re afraid and don’t know where to turn, and they feel like the world is on fire.” 

“People have the wrong idea already about what it’s going to be. People in the Rust Belt who have loved the show [are tweeting], ‘I’m out. I can’t believe that you’re tackling this.’ They don’t understand that every side on our show gets it just as much. The white privilege that Sarah and Alison['s characters] deal with is satirical as well,” he continued. “The world we’re living in is ridiculous. So, I think that the show, in some ways, is reflecting the idea that nothing makes sense, and the only way to get through it is to try and have some degree of humor about it.”

The new season of American Horror Story debuts tonight on FX.

Emma Robert's 'AHS: Cult' Character Details Revealed!

It has been revealed that Emma Roberts will be portraying a newscaster in one episode of American Horror Story: Cult.

The 26-year-old actress was only able to appear in one episode in AHS‘ seventh season due to her film schedule. Ryan Murphy says she carved out time to make a cameo “as a favor” to him.

Emma‘s character is named Serina Belinda and she receives a promotion over Adina Porter‘s character “simply because she’s much more superficial and willing to do what it takes to survive,” Ryan said (via TV Line).

Another actress who will be appearing in one episode is Lena Dunham and we know more details about her character as well!

Ryan Murphy Reveals Lena Dunham's 'AHS: Cult' Character

Lena Dunham will be guest starring in an episode of the upcoming season of American Horror Story and her role has been revealed!

The 31-year-old actress will be playing Valerie Solanas, the women who tried to assassinate artist Andy Warhol.

The season will follow how various cult leaders rose to power. “We examine how these people rise to power — they’re idiots,” Ryan said during a Q&A with press on Friday (August 26), according to Deadline.

Lena‘s episode is all “about female rage and that’s in the country now. Solanas wrote the Scum Manifesto. She told all women to kill men, and it was their only way to rise to power.”

The actress will appear as Solanas in flashbacks during the seventh episode of the season, titled “Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag.”
