Cosmopolitan cover calling Kardashians 'America's first family' sparks backlash

Move over, Barack and Michelle Obama! Apparently, America just got a new first family. And they won’t be staying in the White House — they prefer their swanky West Coast digs.

According to Cosmopolitan, the Kardashians are the new reigning family. The magazine recently unveiled the cover for its November 2015 issue, featuring the Kardashian and Jenner women.

Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner pose in all-white. Bold pink font reads, “America’s First Family.”

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" stars really have America wrapped around their well-manicured fingers!

Or do they?

Social media activity suggests otherwise. Some people are downright disgusted by Cosmo’s bold move, and are tweeting their frustration at the publication.

Of course, many users have been quick to point out — some, with a touch of humor — that the Obamas are the first family.

The idea of the Kardashians, who shot to fame on reality TV, trumping the actual first family, is maddening to many.

However, it's also possible that the magazine has psychic powers. After all, Kim's husband, Kanye West, has said he plans to run for President in 2020.

A request to Cosmopolitan for comment was not immediately answered.
