Interview magazine dubbed Kim Kardashian “America’s New First Lady” in her cover shot for its September issue.

“.@KimKardashian channels Jackie Kennedy Onassis together with her daughter North for our September cover,” the magazine posted Monday on Twitter.

In the cover shot, the 36-year-old reality television star poses in a white dress and white gloves, with her arm around her daughter, who was wearing a blue dress with a white lace collar. (RELATED: PHOTOS: Kim Kardashian Goes Out In NYC Wearing Blazer And Sheer Bra)

The reality star shared several of the shots from the photo spread with her 55.1 million followers, and the comments show that people aren’t thrilled with her new designation.

“Jackie O turning over in her damn grave right now,” one wrote.

Another added, “What make this magazine thinks she is a first lady?”

“Oh please. U will never be no Jackie or First Lady. STOP,” one person continued.

“If anyone can be said to embody the American Dream, it’s Kim Kardashian West,” the feature article reads. “It’s almost hard to remember a time before she and her sprawling mega-family–mother Kris Jenner and ex-stepfather, Olympic champion Caitlyn (née Bruce) Jenner, sisters Kourtney and Khloé, half-sisters Kendall and Kylie, brother Rob, and various friends, husbands, boyfriends, and exes–invented a new kind of tabloid fame, one based on access rather than aspiration.”

“A decade into Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the show has evolved from covering Brady Bunchantics and innocuous drama to serving as a rooted-in-real-life mirror to what the American family looks like today, bringing up topics such as race, gender, and, more recently, trans identity,” the piece added.
