A former senatorial candidate from Maine thinks white men committing suicide is hilarious.

At a recent event by the state’s Democratic Party, former Senate candidate Richard Fochtmann was caught on video laughing at the rise in the suicide rate among white males, the Daily Caller reported.

“Today, you know, I saw a [inaudible] that said a lot of men, white men are committing suicide,” he said. “I almost thought yeah, great.”

“Then I thought about it little more,” he continued while attendees laughed. “And I thought maybe I shouldn’t say that out in public.”

A report by the Centers For Disease Control showed a 24 percent increase in suicide deaths among all people.

“I’m a white male. I’m an old man, and I’m appalled by what’s happening to a lot of people my age, and their either lack of morality or whatever it is,” he told the Caller. “There’s no big protest going on about [the Trump] administration.”
