In his first TV appearance since being fired by WWE for taped comments in which he used the N-word, Hulk Hogan tearfully apologized to fans and told “Good Morning America” Monday: “I’m not a racist.”
“I never should have said what I said. I was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it,” he said after being caught using the slur to describe a man involved with his daughter, Brooke.
He also revealed that he once was suicidal.
“I was at the lowest point of my life to where I wanted to kill myself.”
But over the weekend, TMZ reported that the pro wrestler revealed he wanted to team with Donald Trump in a White House run.
“I wanna be Trump’s running mate,” Hogan said. “Did you hear that? Vice President Hogan!”

Hulk Hogan wants to be Donald Trump’s running mate. Given the last few months, there’s a chance this could actually happen. We’re doomed.
