When even George W. Bush, a man who once used the phrase “internets,” doesn’t like you, you know it’s bad.

At an event for his brother Jeb! Bush’s presidential campaign on Sunday night, the younger George Dubbya reportedly dropped a serious truth bomb among a scattering of Jeb! donors, according to Politico.

“I just don’t like the guy,” he said.

Other donors in the room said that Bush was generally “pretty pleasant” when speaking of the other Republican presidential characters during the evening.

Interestingly enough, Cruz was once an employee of George W. Bush’s. Cruz served as a legal policy adviser during the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign, as well as a member of recount team in Florida, among other positions.

Cruz, seen as Jeb! Bush’s biggest rival for the Republican nomination, actually gave Politico a statement in response to Jeb!’s brother’s claim:

“I have great respect for George W Bush, and was proud to work on his 2000 campaign and in his administration. It’s no surprise that President Bush is supporting his brother and attacking the candidates he believes pose a threat to his campaign. I have no intention of reciprocating. I met my wife Heidi working on his campaign, and so I will always be grateful to him.”

To be fair, the last time George W. Bush used the phrase “just don’t” in a sentence, it was this:

“Please just don’t look at part of the glass, the part that is only less than half full.”
