The TV show “American Horror Story” made its new premiere episode explicitly anti-Trump and it didn’t pay off. In fact, the show bombed with audiences as people voted with their remote controls.
Anti-Trump-Themed American Horror Story Was The Least Watched Premiere in Five Years
The latest and politically-charged season of American Horror Story had its weakest debut in five years.
Deadline reports that American Horror Story: Cult, which premiered Tuesday night, drew 3.93 million viewers and a 2.02 rating among adults 18-49, which is a 24% drop from last year’s premiere of American Horror Story: Roanoke.
The story AHS: Cult surrounds Sarah Paulson‘s character, whose numerous phobias including her fear of clowns worsens after Donald Trump shocked the world and won the 2016 election last November while at the same time a cult of scary clowns begin a murderous rampage in her town.

Hollywood just had its worst summer in years and now this. People in the entertainment industry just don’t seem to get it. People want to be entertained, not lectured to about politics from left wingers.
What is it going to take for these folks to learn not to insult their audience? Will they continue to put their industry at such risk?
