Cult is ready to relive the 2016 presidential election. It appears as though Winter may have been sent by Kai to that housewhold in order to feed Ally's fear of clowns.

In addition to the trailer, the show's co-creator tweeted a number of details about Season 7 of "American Horror Story", including the theme and the names of Peters and Paulson's characters.

For those who are still unaware, Peters plays one-half of lovers Kai and Ally, the latter of which will be played by Sarah Paulson.

American Horror Story is an anthology horror drama series created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

CC Sabathia thought about retiring after a knee injury put the 37-year-old left-hander out of commission earlier this month. Montgomery, a young pitcher whose innings are being watched, is 7-6 with a 3.94 ERA but hasn't won since July 25.


Sarah Paulson plays "Ally", a Hillary Clinton-mom living a quiet suburban life in MI with a partner played by Allison Pill who absolutely freaks out during election night once she realized that Donald Trump has won. Neither her partner Ivy (played by Allison Pill), nor her therapist (Cheyenne Jackson) seem to be able to help. The bees and clowns that have been all over the other promo material made appearances as well. Things escalate when Winter Anderson (Lourd) gives Richards' son a Twisty the Clown doll, confirming the return of a character from the Freak Show season.

The show premieres on September 5th on FX.

American Horror Story fans weren't exactly happy about Roanoke's decision to forgo the show's traditional opening credits - often the spookiest part of the season, and certainly a ideal moodsetter.
