Creator Ryan Murphy previously indicated that while the new season of “American Horror Story” would be all about the 2016 presidential election, it wouldn’t feature Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as characters.

“The themes of ‘American Horror Story’ have always been allegories,” he said, while accepting his award for Television Showmanship of the Year. “You will not see [Donald] Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show.”

But the just-released opening sequence seems to contradict his claim, with images of Trump and Hillary masks interspersed with lots of blood, creepy images, and general sinisterness. Perhaps Trump is good for business after all?
