The New York Times engages in understatement

As reported in Money Pours In as Move to Stop Donald Trump Expands.  (The New York Times, 3/6/2016)

George W. Bush straightforwardly sums up the 'wariness' in 6 words.  

As reported in Is Ted Cruz Really an Awful, Terrible Jerk? Well, terms like "pompous asshole" and "backpfeifengesicht" tend to come up.  (Mother Jones, 1/25/2016)

Others weighing in:
  • Bob Dole
  • Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)
  • John Boehner
  • Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
  • Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
  • Everyone on the 2000 campaign
  • Supreme Court clerks
  • Harvard Law School classmates
  • His Princeton roommate
