Trump’s presidential bid has reached a new height of intrigue worldwide. In fact, even the Dalai Lama is now mocking the U.S. presidential election, specifically Donald Trump. During an interview with Piers Morgan this week, the spiritual leader performed an unexpected, but spot-on impersonation of the 70-year-old American billionaire.

“Donald Trump, he’s a very controversial character; have you met Donald Trump?” Morgan asked the famous Buddhist.

“Never,” the Dalai Lama said, although he’s willing to visit Trump in the White House, should the nominee become president and invite him.

The 81-year-old spiritual leader then proceeded to poke fun at the GOP nominee’s hair and “small” mouth.

The Dalai Lama also discussed the current refugee crisis as well as lighter issues, such as the Brangelina split.

But this wasn’t the first time the Dalai Lama was asked to weigh in on Trump’s candidacy. Back in March, he was asked his opinion of “the candidate making the most noise, Donald Trump,” months before Trump clinched the nomination.

“That’s your business,” the Dalai Lama said, and simply stated that he wished for a serious policy discussion, rather than personal attacks.
