OPINION: Former First Lady Michelle Obama teamed up with MTV to launch a virtual high school prom in the hopes of encouraging young people to register to vote. She did this through her When We All Vote organization, which claims to be “nonpartisan” while simultaneously aggressively pushing the leftist vote-by-mail initiative with liberal celebrities.
“I’m just blown away by your commitment and your focus and the level of articulateness you are showing on this issue,” Michelle said on Friday morning during an interview with the “Today” show. She went on to directly address the high school students who were appearing in a live Zoom call.
“I know this has been a tough time for you guys,” she said, according to Breitbart News. “Look, let me just say — the future of your communities and our country is in the hands of young people like you all. No pressure. But we’re counting on you. So let’s show everyone what we can accomplish when we all vote.”

Objective reporting for the educated American.
MTV and When We All Vote had long been planning to collaborate on a senior prom event, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to move it to the Internet. The virtual prom is now set to take place on May 22 with the winning students, who all registered classmates and members of their community to vote.
Michelle’s When We All Vote is chairing a committee of 12 A-list Hollywood celebrities that includes Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Shonda Rhimes, Selena Gomez, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Janelle Monae.

Michelle is clearly trying to register as many young people to vote as possible because they are easier to manipulate into voting Democrat. She should take the “nonpartisan” label off of her organization immediately, because everyone can see plain as day that she’s shamelessly using the group to push her own radical liberal agenda.
