AP White House Reporter Says Michelle Obama Headlining ‘Nonpartisan’ Voter Organization Rallies. There’s Just One Problem.

Nonpartisan means something isn’t partisan (duh) or biased toward one political group, so it’s a little odd to see the term applied to an organization made up entirely of Democrats and their operatives.

So it goes with Michelle Obama’s voter registration organization When We All Vote, which claims to be nonpartisan despite the fact that not a single known conservative, Republican, or Libertarian is anywhere to be seen. But the left-leaning media certainly wants everyone to think this organization is “nonpartisan,” as they keep stressing this in articles about the group.

The Associated Press’ White House reporter, Zeke Miller, is the latest to use this word to describe the group in a tweet saying Obama will headline voter registration rallies in major cities at the end of the month.

He’s referring to When We All Vote, and was quickly called out by conservatives for his use of “nonpartisan” to describe the organization. Let’s take a look at who is involved with the group.


Michelle Obama (Democrat). Tom Hanks (Democrat). Lin-Manuel Miranda (Democrat). Janelle Monáe (Democrat). Chris Paul (Democrat). Faith Hill (Democrat). Tim McGraw (Democrat).

President of the board:

Valerie Jarrett (Democrat, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama).


Tina Tchen (Democrat, former chief of staff to Michelle Obama).

Board Member:

Pete Rouse (Democrat, former senior adviser to President Obama).


Kyle Lierman (Democrat, former senior policy adviser to the Obama White House).


Politico makes it seem like they will all be Democrats.

The group might not say “vote Democrat,” but there is no way it can be considered nonpartisan. I seriously doubt they will be holding rallies in conservative strongholds.
