Now You, Too, Can ‘Breathe’ With Your Very Own Ted Cruz Yoga Mat

Ted Cruz is cashing in on Marco Rubio's yoga joke by selling yoga mats.


One of the more memorable (or regrettable) moments during the shouting match that was Thursday night’s Republican debate is when Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas urged GOP front-runner Donald Trump to “breathe, breathe, breathe. You can do it; you can breathe” as Trump interrupted him. This prompted Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to quip, “When they’re done with the yoga, can I answer a question?” Rubio then called Trump “flexible.” Here’s the sad exchange:

Cruz’s call for Trump to release his inner om was one of the low-lights of the debate, but the Texas senator is looking to cash in on Rubio’s joke. On Friday, Cruz took to Twitter to hawk “Breathe” yoga mats stamped with his logo.

It’s not clear when the mats went on sale, but it’s only possible to pre-order them right now. This suggests that the product is a new one.

It sells for $35, which appears to be a high-end price for a yoga mat. And if you’re in the market for one, hurry here: due to demand, Cruz’s camp needs extra time for delivery.
