am I right? [Because the testimonial banquet would be routine most of the press, like the mafia, had decided to skip it, and Henry Brandon of the London Sunday Times was dining with I an Englishman who lived in Houston. The host painted a dark picture of anti-Kennedy sentiment among Texas rightists. To Brandon his countryman seemed obsessed with the subject. The radicals couldn't be more vicious, the man said over and over; the situation couldn't possibly be exaggerated.] 1.I wonder what does "the host" indicate to? 2. does "the situation couldn't possibly be exaggerated." mean "the situation is bad enough and couldn't get worse?"

1. The host of the banquet. 2. The situation was very bad - so bad it would be hard or impossible to exaggerate or overstate it, almost impossible to describe it as worse than it actually was.
