The Dalai Lama Roasts China's Government During Interview With John Oliver

The Dalai Lama was 100% amused by Oliver and obviously took none of it to heart but you can bet Oliver nearly felt bad about saying what he did.

In the latest installment of his hilarious post-Daily Show comedy/newsmagazine hybrid, Last Week Tonight, John Oliver actually traveled to Dharamsala, India to visit with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama, who fled to India after a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, denies encouraging violence, claiming he only wants autonomy for Tibet. They also cover the hard stance he is put in by Tibetans who choose self-immolation as a form of protest.

As Oliver pointed out, we may be left with two competing Dalai Lama, or perhaps even no Dalai Lama when all is said and done.

"The Chinese government absolutely hates you, don't they?"

The eye catcher from the interview is how Dalai Lama visited Mongolia and replaced Vodka with horse milk; John Oliver's reaction was price less. "The Chinese hardliners, in their brain, that part of the brain, is missing", the Dalai Lama said.

There were loud protests from Beijing when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visited Arunachal in October 2009, followed by the Dalai Lama in November that year. That's also, you say, one of the foolish acts. On top of everything else, the current Dalai Lama is now 81, and people are beginning to get concerned about his reincarnation plans, because the next Panchen Lama, the figure responsible for identifying the next Dalai Lama, was taken into Chinese custody as a child, and hasn't been seen since. But I'm also a huge fan of Oliver himself.

"Yes, I am a demon with horns. The 14th Dalai Lama is in political exile engaged in anti-China separatist activities under the disguise of religion", he said.

The person who appoints the re-birthed Dalai Lama is the Panchen Lama - while the reincarnated Panchen Lama is appointed by the Dalai Lama. He was quite cheerful and provided some incredible answers to some of Oliver's questions. The boy the Dalai Lama chose hasn't been seen or heard from in the 22 years since his kidnapping.
