Will Kathy Bates be playing Donald Trump in American Horror Story: Election?


Ryan Murphy has done a lot of flip-flopping in regards to the details surrounding the upcoming season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY. First he told us the season would NOT include characters based on Hillary Clinton and/or Donald Trump. Then he said it would...

Anyhow, it is with this in mind I share the news that fans of the series have rallied to get Kathy Bates to portray the orange dude, and in an interview with The Hill, she commented on the rumor.

Kathy Bates on playing Donald Trump:

Oh, my lord … I doubt that would happen. I really do. I know Ryan Murphy is doing something about the election. You know, my eyes popped open when he said that. No. I don’t think I’ll be playing Donald Trump. You know, I’m going to leave that to Alec Baldwin. I think he’s doing a smash job.

We'll see about that... 

While it is strange as f*ck for Kathy Bates to portray Donald Trump, this is AMERICAN HORROR STORY we are talking about here, and "strange" is barely the tip of the iceberg with that series. So I wouldn't count this out as pure rumor right now.

While I don't think Bates will be the final choice to portray Trump, I do think Ryan Murphy has entertained the idea. And I would love to see the concept art for that.

I just want to know if Emma Roberts will be back this season.
