A woman and her wife are left utterly distraught because of the election of Trump. Despite the help of her psychiatrist, Ally becomes increasingly unstable in the following weeks, her long repressed phobias begin to re-emerge, and they begin to affect her relationships with her wife as well as their son. Across town, a misogynistic alt-righter, Kai, rejoices at the election results, enticing him to pursue political power by running for city council.

As Ally attempts to re-adjust to regular life despite her growing anxiety and paranoia, she becomes terrorized by a group of masked assailants in clown attire who are only present when she is alone, leaving those around her to wonder if she was truly attacked, or if they were merely hallucinations.

With Kai's rise to power revealing sinister motives, Ally starts to draw connections between her alleged clown attackers and the many strange incidents occurring in Brookfield Heights. She begins to fear that everyone in town is out to get her, amplifying her growing distrust of those around her.

Qvamp says:

An attempt to show how politicians use fear as a political tool.

This is the most violent season of AHS, and is extremely difficult to watch.

Much of the core cast (and crew) identified as queer. This season includes: Sarah Paulson, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Colton Haynes, Chaz Bono and Ryan Murphy.
