Michael Wolff, the author of a new book examining the goings on in the White House under President Trump, believes the tome may help contribute to the eventual end of Trump's presidency. In an interview Saturday with BBC radio, Wolff said his book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, is contributing to "the perception and the understanding that will finally end ... this presidency."

The book certainly isn't kind to Trump. It paints a picture of a West Wing in chaos, with Trump administration officials lamenting the president's child-like behavior. "I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect," Wolff said. "Suddenly everywhere people are going 'oh my God, it's true, he has no clothes.'"

Trump has said the book is full of lies, and called Wolff a "total loser." You can listen to the interview here.
