The folks behind American Horror Story are masters of the macabre, bringing us a regular dose of the fantastically freaky. Willing to take on the most terrifying tales, they鈥檙e about to dive right into the most controversial聽and strangest story of our time: the 2016 election.

Donald Trump

American Horror Story producer Ryan Murphy confirmed the fact himself while appearing on last night鈥檚 Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, saying, 鈥淸Season 7] is going to be about the election that we just went through, so I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.鈥 No doubt!

But what about the villain in the story? Will it be a figure from the election, or someone completely fictional? Murphy isn鈥檛 giving answers. When asked if President Trump might inspire one of the characters, he gave聽an intriguing 鈥渕aybe鈥 in reply.

If season seven of AHS does indeed deal with the election (and a Trump-ish character appears), we can safely bet that the president will be tweeting all about it, especially since plenty of folks are already doing so鈥

Do you think it鈥檚 a good idea for American Horror Story to do a season about the election? Tweet us @BritandCo!
