The Dalai Lama’s impression of Donald Trump is that the Republican candidate for US president is all hair and mouth. The Tibetan Buddhist leader and political exile did a brief impersonation for Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain on Sept. 22:

In the video, Dalai Lama uses a hand to describe Trump’s hair and mouth. “I don’t know, sometimes his hair is something like that,” he said, hanging his fingers over his forehead, “and his mouth, small,” he said, mimicking a tiny chattering mouth with his hand. “That’s my impression.”
