In another long interview with Trump’s best buddies at Fox & Friends, the President had the gall to compare Melania to the irreplaceable Jackie O—the beloved former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. When referring to the classic baby blue paint job on Air Force One, which Trump plans on changing to the colors of the American flag, he implied that we don’t need any reminders of Jackie O anymore because we have Melania.

“That was Jackie O and that’s good, but we have our own Jackie O today, it’s called Melania,” he said. “We’ll call it Melania T.”

No, we won’t.

Naturally, people are rather upset about the comparison. Jackie has been remembered through the years for being a fashion icon and for restoring the White House. She endured hardship that Melania has never known, including losing two of her children in infancy and, of course, witnessing the assassination of her husband as he sat right next to her in the motorcade. Jackie O is easily one of the most popular First Ladies of all time.

Melania, meanwhile, wears crap like this:

Now, for perhaps the first time in history, “Jackie O” is trending on Twitter, but not for a positive reason.

Many people have also pointed out that there was a recent First Lady who is much more deserving of comparison to Jackie.

Just a year and seven months until we can maybe have some class back in the White House again.
