A Maine-based website has released cellphone video of Democrats at a “Values and Vision” community meeting laughing at suicide among America’s white male population.

Video released Friday from a recent event hosted by the Maine Democratic Party features former state senatorial candidate Richard Fochtmann discussing giddiness at news of white male suicide. The incident, shared by Maine First Media and picked up by The Daily Caller soon afterward, elicited raucous laughter from attendees.
