First of all, what in the world isan ABC News reporter doing asking a world religious leader about US politics. He doesn’t know anything about it. The Dalai Lama even said “That’s your business,” when asked the question by Dan Harris.

The bottom line here is that the media is not doing its job. They think that sports figures or religious figures are automatically able to offer opinions on politics.That not what people want from them. They want athletes to play a game. They want religious leaders to offer spiritual guidance. Ask somebody else about Donald Trump.
