“‘I said, ‘Dad, do you want to do an interview?’ And he said, ‘Let her rip.'”

Watching one of your parents fight cancer is tough. Eva Vega-Olds a Boricua whose father, Leonardo Vega, bravely battled cancer, decided to record an intimate conversation between the two. The Puerto Rican father and daughter duo take a beautifully crafted stroll down memory lane as they talk everything from when Leonardo moved from Puerto Rico to New Jersey, to him teaching her how to swim, to walking her down the aisle. Towards the end of the interview, there is a touching moment where Eva asks her father what he is most proud of, and like any Latino parent, his answer will bring you to tears.

Y’all. If you’ve checked Twitter lately, you more than likely saw tweet after tweet with the hashtag #CruzSexScandal blowing up your feed. The reason behind the hashtag is a story that ran in the National Enquirer. It claims Ted Cruz had affairs with 5 different women — FIVE. On the one hand, it’s the National Enquirer we’re talking about, but on the other,  they broke the John Edwards sex scandal story so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . Regardless of the legitimacy of the story, the responses to the hashtag have been magical.

The hashtag has led to depression for a lot of Twitter users.

And then there are the social media vigilantes working diligently to expose the identities of the women accused of sleeping with Cruz.
