The Dalai Lama's Donald Trump Impression Is Spot On

“His mouth is small”

During an interview on “Good Morning Britain” on Wednesday, Piers Morgan asked the Dalai Lama what many Americans want to know: What does the spiritual leader think of Donald Trump?

The Dalai Lama offered his standard answer that he does not know what to think of the Republican presidential candidate because they’ve never met in person. That being said, he did come to a few conclusions about the former steak peddler’s appearance. As in, the Dalai Lama seems to find Trump’s expressions ridiculous (and rightly so).

In a spot on impression of Trump, the Dalai Lama mimicked a poof of hair with his hand and puckered his lips to resemble Trump’s tiny mouth. “His mouth is small,” he said, opening and closing his mouth like a guppy out of water. Morgan couldn’t help but burst into laughter when the Dalai Lama mimed Trump’s behavior and said, “That’s my impression.”

While he didn’t have any other specific critiques for Trump, it would make sense for the Dalai Lama to feel uncomfortable with the former “Apprentice” host’s policies. The Tibetan monk has been actively defending refugee rights along with the benefits of multiculturalism as of late—two things Trump has been ardently against. While it wouldn’t be in the Dalai Lama’s style to hurl Trump-level insults, he did say this about the candidate during an interview on ABC in March:

“A serious discussion about policy matters is useful. But sometimes a little bit personal criticism—that looks a little bit cheap. That’s my view.”

Take note, Mr. Trump. If there’s anything you don’t like, it’s looking cheap.

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

Major US phone carriers have yet to build out the infrastructure necessary to provide a consistent 5G experience, so Apple didn't feel it necessary to integrate the technology into its latest iPhone.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

In an effort to avoid a dystopian sci-fi future where Artificial Intelligence knows pretty much everything about you, and a team of cops led by Tom Cruise run around arresting people for crimes they did not commit because of bad predictive analysis; Bernie Sanders and other Democratic candidates have some proposals on how we can stop it.

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.

In 2009, the U.S. government paid $50 billion to bail out Detroit-based automaker General Motors. In the end, the government would end up losing $11.2 billion on the deal.

Government efforts saved 1.5 million jobs in the United States and a sizable portion of an industry that helped define America in the twentieth century.

As part of the auto industry's upheaval in the wake of the Great Recession, the United Automobile Workers (UAW) made sacrifices in contracts to help put the company on a solid footing after the government bailout.

Fake news is rampant on the internet. Unscrupulous websites are encouraged to create misleading stories about political figures because they get clicks.

A study published by Science Advances found that elderly conservatives are, by far, the worst spearders of fake news. Ultra conservatives over the age of 65 shared about seven times more fake information on social media than moderates and super liberals during the 2016 election.

Get ready for things to get worse.
