American Horror Story: Cult season premiere live stream

If you had somehow missed the endless parade of American Horror Story: Cult teasers, promos, spoilers, and interviews that let fans know this season would tap into the fear sparked by the 2016 election, the premiere quickly gets to the thematic point by opening with a series of clips illustrating the tensions of the campaign, from Clinton and Trump themselves exchanging barbs to their supporters clashing at rallies.

Afraid of clowns - and the fate of the United States after Donald Trump is elected - a restaurateur (Sarah Paulson) thinks a posse of insane clowns is sneaking into her house and causing trouble. In addition, Murphy indicated that while his characters do have strong views about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, that's not what the season is about. (Creepy masks of both candidates appear in the baroque credit sequence.) Married to Ivy (Alison Pill), a restaurateur who operates a steakhouse ominously called The Butchery, Allie is in an nearly constant state of screaming hysteria, which grows tiresome even by the end of the first episode. "Go to hell, Huffington Post!". Fuck you, Nate Silver! As Ally and Ivy are arguing about the election outside, Kai comes along and throws his drink at them. Our own state of MI.

Orange cheese doodle aficionado Kai - who is styled to resemble equal parts Heath Ledger's iconic The Joker and a Juggalo - is elated that chaos rules the land.

Ally looks up in disbelief.

A few days later Ally and Ivy have a date night at their restaurant and, once again, Ally sees a scary clown masturbating in the corner, but Ivy sees nothing.

Trump's election into the presidency has been so controversial, that is has inspired quite a number of literary and artistic works that capitalize on how people feel about it.

But the security camera, of course, will reveal only that Ally is in her head a little too much. "I tried, you know that I did!" she says, pleading with her wife, Ivy (Alison Pill).

Ozzy: I don't want you to not be married anymore. She fights them off and finally makes it back to her vehicle where she frantically calls Ivy. But since they live in MI and Ally voted for Jill Stein, she has no one but herself to blame. Her relationship with Ivy is growing strained.

Ivy: You have to do your cookie breathing You've got to do your cookie breathing. I got nearly 6,000 followers from that.

Ally: I can't do my cookie breathing. "What if I get pregnant now, where will I get an abortion?" she asks a friend on the phone. In the context of the 2016 election, MI is especially divisive: that fact that MI was part of Jill Stein's recount effort adds more salt to the wound. She goes on, "Come on, you can't blame me!"

In this next scene, the "good vs evil" is laid out more clearly as Ally speaks to her therapist. "She went to Arizona, for God's sake". But should they be casting their vote for this year's gimmick? Poor Freak Show. The credits have a lot going for them-the creepy toys and skeletons having sex throughout is an image we can't forget-but ultimately, it doesn't hold up when compared to the truly terrifying elements of the other sequences. Murphy co-wrote the episode with his producing partner, Brad Falchuk, and they clearly have some things to say about certain people and their role in the way the election turned out. Lena Dunham plays the woman who shot Warhol, Valerie Solanas, in a one-episode run to explore "female rage" both then and in the country now.
