Deepak Chopra: Trump is “emotionally Retarded, Maybe Mentally Retarded”

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

If you aren’t angry about our almost $20 TRILLION debt, the Obamacare mandate, the Iran Deal, the Veterans Administration scandal, the IRS targeting TEA Party organizations, and the multitude of ineptness coming out of this administration and congress, maybe YOU are emotionally retarded.


From PennLive: Deepak Chopra, one of the most recognizable figures in alternative medicine, said Donald Trump is popular because he’s giving our collective psyche permission to express the darkest demons.

“I would never say this unless I believed it was 100 percent true, but he represents the racist, the bigot, the one who’s prejudiced, the one who is full of fear and hatred, the one who represents emotional retardation of a three-year old,” Chopra said during a conservative radio show this week, according to The Daily Beast.

Chopra, who regularly practices yoga and meditation, said the presumptive GOP nominee is full of fear. “He is angry. He has a lot of hatred. He pouts, he’s belligerent, he’s emotionally retarded,” he said, according to The Daily Beast.

Chopra said he wouldn’t describe anyone as “retarded.”

“But he’s bringing out the worst in me, because I, too, am fearful of what would happen to the United States of America and the rest of the world if, God forbid, he became president,” he said, according to The Daily Beast.

However, after briefly regretting his own negative thoughts, Chopra upped the ante. “Maybe I was too kind when I said he was emotionally retarded, maybe he’s mentally retarded too,” he said.
