Watch Political, Clown-Filled 'American Horror Story: Cult' Trailer

The FX Network released the opening credits on the show's various social media platforms. We also get a look at a book called Twisty: The Clown Chronicles, which fans know is a connection to the Twisty we first met in American Horror Story: Freak Show. As a patriotic remix of the opening instrumentals play, we see a hidden figure don a Donald Trump mask, and another in a Hillary Clinton disguise. The new season is called "Cult", which outwardly seemed to have little to do with politics. She is evidently horrified by the election of Donald Trump and her fear only grows after the election. Great news, then, that she's interviewing for a job as Ally and Ivy's nanny, and bringing some creepy-ass Twisty The Clown toys into their handsome home.

Meanwhile, Evan Peters' character, Kai Anderson, is thrilled with the news of Trump's victory.

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. It is also implied that the killer clowns who have been glimpsed in all the promotional material aren't just some freaky imagery. What role will they play in the upcoming season?

What are your thoughts on the newly leaked spoilers for American Horror Story Season 7? Billy Eichner, Lena Dunham, Emma Roberts, and Chaz Bono will make appearances as well.

Like a previous teaser for the show, the sequence features bees congregating on hives and a number of weapon-wielding clowns.

But what do you think of the new footage? (If you're living under a rock, it's called AHS: Cult.) Why all the secrecy?
