Piers Morgan Interviewing the Dalai Lama

Piers Morgan interviewed His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, for Good Morning Britain on Thursday to talk about outstanding world issues such as the war on ISIS, Syrian refugee crisis, and yep, Mr. Donald Trump.

The affairs that both men discussed were very crucial issues in the world today, but, let's face it, the highlight of the exchange was the one regarding Donald Trump.

No, probably not Mr. Trump himself or whatever controversy he's involved but that was one excellent impersonation done by a man of such stature and spirituality in this world.

The 81-year-old icon mentioned that he never met the controversial presidential candidate but would love to visit him if ever he was invited.

"That depends you see on him, if he invite me then I would go." he said.

Nonetheless, he didn't waste any time on mocking him.

When Morgan asked the Dalai Lama on his thoughts about Mr. Trump, the reply was unexpected yet brilliant, saying: "I don't know, sometimes when you see him, the way his hair... [puts hand on forehead]... and his mouth is small [mimics Trump's mouth]... that is my impression of him but I don't know."

The interview went on to the other topics mentioned earlier. His Holiness shared his thoughts on them in his typical peaceful and humble reflection.

When Piers asked the Dalai Lama what he thought about ISIS, he said "Genuine Muslim practitioner will not create bloodshed."

His message to the extremist group was "I think there is too emotion, they should cool down."

Regarding the refugee crisis in Syria, he said, "Main effort should go to help own country bring peace. In Syria, Libya or even Afghanistan. Generally the people always feel that one day they will return. Should rebuild their own country."

As the interview moved forward, they even talked about Kim Kardashian and her army of followers on Twitter.

The Dalai Lama said: "Why? If she have more followers, good, no problem."

"Such famous people. I think, no ability to compete [with] my wisdom."

Overall, the interview was a success and the Dalai Lama proved to be once again not just an enlightening but also a very entertaining individual. It even ended with a selfie taken by Morgan with His Holiness.

Many viewers immediately took to Twitter praising the interview and focusing on, of course, the Dalai Lama's brilliant performance as Mr. Donald Trump.
