As FX’s hit series American Horror Story enters its seventh season, titled Cult, creator Ryan Murphy wants to make one thing clear -- despite having a political backdrop, it is not about our current president. Speaking to reporters in Los Angeles recently at an advance screening, Murphy (pictured at top left opposite FX Networks CEO John Landgraf) had this to say about any pre-conceived notions concerning the politics of the series’ latest installment: “This season is not about Trump. It's not about Clinton. It's about somebody who has the wherewithal to put their finger up in the wind and see what's happening and is using that to rise up and form power using people's vulnerabilities. I think that people have the wrong idea already about what it's going to be. It’s about how [people] are afraid and don't know where to turn and they feel like the world is on fire.”
