Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s thinly disguised suggestion last week that something may be wrong with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's mental state has bought what had been an unmentionable subject into the limelight, according to multiple media reports.

Trump's quickness at firing back at criticism, including to the gold-star Khan parents, verbal gaffes and contradictory statements during the campaign and his longtime penchant for attaching his name to properties has prompted some to label him a "sociopath" and "narcissist," according to NBC News.

Bloomberg, while touting Chappaqua resident and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at the Democrat National Convention, raised the specter of his fellow business mogul’s mental health, The Toronto Star reported.

In his speech praising Clinton's candidacy, Bloomberg urged voters to elect a “sane” and “competent” president, while blasting Trump as a “dangerous demagogue,” according to multiple media reports.

And he wasn’t the only one; other political analysts have since weighed in on the Republican nominee’s competency, The Toronto Star story said.

Trump, who had once praised Bloomberg as a great mayor, reacted to the North Salem resident's scathing remarks by tweeting that Bloomberg would be trounced if he ever ran for office again, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.

Trump, who owns an estate in Bedford, also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor.

The Trump name also adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains, Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, Trump Park Residences in Yorktown, and the Donald J. Trump State Park on the Westchester/Putnam border.
