The Internet’s favorite college gymnast, Sophina DeJesus, was on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” where she talked routine inspo, broken dreams and gave another great performance.

The show started with Ellen and DeJesus reminiscing over the first time DeJesus made an appearance on the show as a little girl.

Even then, DeJesus had some sick moves.

The college senior described what was going on in her mind when she put together her routine.

Young Latinos Were The Real Winners Of The MSNBC/Telemundo Democratic Town Hall

MSNBC and Telemundo teamed up to bring the two Democratic candidates together for a lively discussion of issues that ranged from the housing market to immigration. There was a clear winner: young Latino voters. Why? Check it out.

Sanders was first to face the audience. He was asked to define “Democratic Socialism” and how it compares to the socialism of countries like Venezuela and Cuba.

“When I talk about Democratic Socialism, I’m not looking at Venezuela. I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark and Sweden,” Sanders pointed out to the audience. “And you know what goes on in those countries? All of the kids who have the ability and desire go to college. And you know how much it costs? It is free.”

But, it means much more than Social Security, according to Sanders.

Sanders said he wants to expand Medicare from to elderly to everyone, because “everybody in this country should be entitled to health care as a right.”

Then, a self-described Muslim-American asked the Senator how he would tackle Islamaphobia. Sanders used it to talk about another Latino issue.

“It is absolutely unacceptable to me that in the year 2016 we have people like Donald Trump and others who are trying to gain votes by scapegoating people who may be Muslims or people who may be Latinos,” Sanders emphasized. “That is unacceptable.”

Then it was Clinton’s turn to take the stage. She was asked why voters should trust her.

“How are you going to deserve our vote?” At the heart of the question is the concern of a weak jobs market facing young people. Many of them are graduating college with high student debt and no job prospects.

Clinton answered the best way she could… by mentioning her husband’s record.

“…and get incomes rising because Americans haven’t had a rise in 15 years,” Clinton continued. “I want to be sure that we knock down the barriers that hold back people because of racisim, sexisim, homophobia, all the other kinds of prejudice and bias that is out there. I also want to be sure women get equal pay for work. I think it’s way past time, and we deserve it.”

Clinton was also asked about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] and asked how she would improve the lives of DACA recipients.

Rocio Puente wanted to know if Clinton had any plan to ease the tension and fear of DACA students who have to renew their DACA status every two years.

And Clinton came prepared, voicing her support for both DACA and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans [DAPA].

“I will renew them [Obama’s executive orders]. I will go further if it’s at all legally possible,” Clinton continued. “And I will make this a big political issue because we need to keep those young people working, going to school, being productive members of our society. So I will do everything I can, not only for the young people who deserve the highest protection, but for their families as well.”
