Emotionally Retarded, Maybe Mentally Retarded

Deepak is a doctor.
JAMA had to post a retractive statement after a Chopra article took a lot of flak.
Deepak pushes alternative medicine.
Most doctors don't push alternative medicine. Why not?
Mostly because science doesn't back alternative medicine.

the hypocrisy will be shown again. The people who would go bat poop crazy if Trump called anyone retarded, will support this guy using a word they say is "hateful" and "discriminatory" and whatnot.
The kool aide is cold, so play on playa
Call anyone retarded? Trump publicly mocked a NYT reporter with arthrogryposis by moving his arms like a disabled guy. Or have you forgotten so quickly?
Emotional intelligence refers to an ability to recognize the meanings of emotion and their relationships, and to reason and problem-solve on the basis of them. Emotional intelligence is involved in the capacity to perceive emotions, assimilate emotion-related feelings, understand the information of those emotions, and manage them.
For example: Verbal intelligence concerns the mental ability to reason with and about verbal information, and of verbal knowledge to enhance thought. Spatial intelligence concerns the mental ability to reason with and about spatial information (i.e., the shape of objects and their orientation in space), and of spatial knowledge to enhance thought. ...and so on.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) has several facets, which are grounded in our:
-self-knowledge: simply an understanding of yourself and your goals and abilities
-empathy: a very eloquent definition was provided by psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut, who defines empathy as “the capacity to think and feel oneself into the inner life of another person”
-likability: how well you are liked with critical elements of personality encompassing friendliness, empathy, realness, and capacity to connect
-ability to connect people and ideas
NPD symptoms are as follows:
-grandiosity / exaggeration
-fantastic thinking / romantic
-believes special / unique
- requires admiration
-entitled / demanding
-exploitative / manipulative
-envious / jealous
-arrogant / haughty
For mental-health professionals, Donald Trump is at once easily diagnosed but slightly confounding. “Remarkably narcissistic,” said developmental psychologist Howard Gardner, a professor at Harvard Graduate School of Education. “Textbook narcissistic personality disorder,” echoed clinical psychologist Ben Michaelis. “He’s so classic that I’m archiving video clips of him to use in workshops because there’s no better example of his characteristics,” said clinical psychologist George Simon, who conducts lectures and seminars on manipulative behavior. “Otherwise, I would have had to hire actors and write vignettes. He’s like a dream come true.”
“He’s very easy to diagnose,” said psychotherapist Charlotte Prozan. “In the first debate, he talked over people and was domineering. He’ll do anything to demean others, like tell Carly Fiorina he doesn’t like her looks. ‘You’re fired!’ would certainly come under lack of empathy. And he wants to deport immigrants, but [two of] his wives have been immigrants.” Michaelis took a slightly different twist on Trump’s desire to deport immigrants: “This man is known for his golf courses, but, with due respect, who does he think works on these golf courses?”

At least you admit it was an analogy and not a "fantasy".
I'll consider that a plus. Otherwise, do you wish to add something intelligent to the discussion or do I have to search for another Pee Wee quote to accurately describe your attempt at obfuscation?
it was a simile actually. But yes, I'm not positive you fantasize about these things, though I bet you do.
Pee Wee quotes is your forte, why stop there? well, besides double standards.
Maybe you can explain how I'm obfuscating as opposed to pointing out your hypocrisy.
