The fitness brand Peloton went viral this week after a commercial it released was mocked for showing a man buying his significant other a fitness bike for Christmas. The company responded to criticism of the ad by saying they were “disappointed” with how it was being interpreted.
“We constantly hear from our members how their lives have been meaningfully and positively impacted after purchasing or being gifted a Peloton Bike or Tread, often in ways that surprise them,” a representative for the company said in a Wednesday statement.

Impeachment Witness Apologizes for Mentioning Barron Trump During Hearing
By Washington Examiner. Stanford Law professor Pamela Karlan said she was “wrong” to have talked about Barron Trump during a House impeachment hearing.
“I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that,” Karlan said Wednesday during the impeachment hearing. “I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.”

Earlier in the hearing, the law professor used the 13-year-old Barron Trump to take a shot at the president. “The Constitution doesn’t allow titles of nobility,” Karlan said in front of the House Judiciary Committee. “So, while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
First lady Melania Trump responded on Twitter, calling for her child to be kept out of partisan politics. “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it,” Melania Trump said.
