And to think this was just a meme a few months ago

Ryan Murphy is pulling inspiration straight from the 2016 presidential election for the next season of American Horror Story.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the prolific producer revealed that season seven of the FX anthology series will tackle the Nov. 8 election that saw Donald Trump defeat former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The next season "is going to be about the election that we just went through, so I think that will be interesting for a lot of people," Murphy told Cohen while promoting his new FX anthology series, Feud.

When pressed for details from Cohen, particularly whether there will be a character based on President Trump, Murphy responded with a coy "Maybe."

AHS was renewed for two more seasons in January. Series mainstays Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have already been confirmed to return. Season seven, Murphy also revealed Wednesday, begins shooting in June.

Murphy has been less and less forthcoming about recent seasons of AHS. For season six, 24 teasers touting different themes were created to keep viewers in the dark about the theme.

AHS is one of three anthology dramas Murphy has at FX. Feud, which launches its first season on March 5, centers on the rivalry between actresses Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. American Crime Story, which famously focused on O.J. Simpson's murder trial in season one, is set to tackle several more political topics in upcoming installments. Season two will look at Hurricane Katrina, and ACS producers have also optioned Jeffrey Toobin's book about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.

AHS wouldn't be the only series to address the most recent presidential election. The upcoming Good Wife spinoff, premiering Sunday, opens with Christine Baranski's character watching President Trump's inauguration. Black-ish discussed the surprising results of the election in a recent episode. South Park has also covered the election frequently.

As for series specifically depicting the president, Scandal famously featured a similar presidential candidate last season in Gregg Henry's character. Meanwhile, Gary Cole played a businessman-turned-politician loosely inspired by Trump in a twice-delayed episode of Law & Order: SVU that has yet to air.
Billy Eichner and Billie Lourd aka CHANEL #3 have also been confirmed

I have never been more hyped to see a WOKE AHS like HOLY CRAP. HE'S HIGHLIGHTING EVERY SINGLE MARGINALIZED COMMUNITY OUT THERE and considering how progressive Ryan is, the commentary will go HARD and NOT HOLD BACK.

Imagine if he got Gaga to recreate her garbage truck protest from that night

LOTTI ARE YOU READY

That article is from back in February. Ryan recently confirmed that the first 10 minutes of the opening episode will feature characters watching the election on TV and it'll be real footage. So, they're not casting a fictional Trump-esque character. He said the season will be about the horrors that happen to the characters on election night and the aftermath of it.

I think she'll be busy until 2018 balancing the Joanne Tour and ASIB (but apparently they've wrapped up!), even then she'll have to promote it. Saying that, I hope she finds some time to appear in season seven, even if it's just a small singular episode role! I love her on AHS!
