China says Dalai Lama a 'deceptive actor' after brain comments

Between 2009 and 2016, 146 Tibetans have set themselves alight in protest against the Chinese government's suppression of the Tibetan people.

China on Tuesday fired a fresh salvo at the Dalai Lama, branding him an "actor and a liar", after the India-based Tibetan spiritual leader claimed Chinese hardliners have "parts of their brain missing".

Friction between the Dalai Lama and occupied Tibet has spread into a row over the leader's reincarnation. "The Chinese hardliners, in their brain, that part of the brain, is missing", the Dalai Lama said.

"We often say that the 14th Dalai Lama is a political exile who wears religious clothing to engage in anti-China separatist activities", Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said. One Chinese government official said the Dalai Lama was a "wolf wrapped in monk's robes". In the video clip of the show's segment, posted below, the Dalai Lama, or as pronounced by Oliver as "Dal-eye" Lama answered questions and offered insight on a multitude of topics. Lady Gaga met with him a year ago to pressure USA mayors to adopt policies of kindness and humanity, while, at the 1993 Oscars, presenter Richard Gere famously railed against Chinese occupation in support of Tibetan causes. He practices taking distrust and suspicion and turning it around.

There's much more enlightenment to be had in the full interview/segment, not to mention lots of adorable Dalai Lama laughs. This is what brings us to the Dalai Lama interview that took place on Sunday night. The Dalai Lama is tasked with finding the reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, who in turn seeks the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. "You can't transfer, you can't reincarnate the demon into me".

"Wait, hold on, you tried to wean them off vodka by giving them horse milk?".

"In the meantime, if I say [the immolation] is wrong, then their family will feel very sad, [because they'll think] their family member did something against the Dalai Lama's wish, " he said. However the fact he got a chance to discuss the issues with the Dalai Lama himself has to be one of the all-time highlights of Last Week Tonight.
