Sarah Paulson has proven time and again that she can do anything. She’s believably played creepy conjoined twins in American Horror Story: Freak Show, famed prosecuting attorney Marcia Clark in The People Vs. O.J. Simpson and legendary actress Geraldine Page in Feud. Now she’s found a role that we can really relate to. In American Horror Story: Cult, the out 42-year-old actress plays a lesbian mom opposite Alison Pill who loses her shit when she sees the results of last year’s presidential election. In an apparent interest toward fair representation, the Ryan Murphy-produced series also offers a different take on the horrifying event of last November 8 with a long blue-haired Evan Peters humping the TV screen in a fit of ecstasy at Trump’s
loss of the popular vote win.
At one point in the short trailer, Paulson’s character reveals, “Since Election night it has all been getting so much worse.” Preach, sister. We feel you.
The new series has everything, including Hollywood princess Billie Lourd as a Wednesday Addams clone and the return of deformed serial killer Twisty the Clown.
American Horror Story: Cult premieres on F/X September 5. Watch the creepy trailer below.
