Following the release of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by author Michael Wolff, Steven Bannon quickly came under fire from the president and eventually lost his job at the right-wing Breitbart News. In response, Wolff is taking full credit for appearing to end his career as a member of the administration and with Breitbart.

Wolff on Bannon

To kick off 2018, Donald Trump was forced to deal with the fallout from "Fire and Fury" as Michael Wolff's book about the first year of the new administration instantly became a bestseller. As expected, the president quickly dismissed the book, referring to it as "pure fiction" and nothing but "lies," while labeling Wolff a "loser." One of Wolff's main sources, however, was Steve Bannon, the former Trump campaign CEO and later Chief Strategist at the White House.

After reports of in-fighting between Bannon and members of the administration, he was let go over the summer and returned back to Breitbart News where he continued to push the Trump agenda. Since the release of the book, where Bannon took hard shots at Trump and his team, the president was quick to fire back, labeling him as "Sloppy Steve." The push back from the White House resulted in Bannon being fired by Breitbart, which led into an interview with Wolff during the January 10 edition of "The View" on ABC.

Joining the hosts of "The View" on Wednesday, Michael Wolff opened up about his experience in the White House in regards to Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and others.

"Literally, I just sort of slipped in through the cracks," Wolff said about being able to gain access into the White House over the last year.

Michael Wolff went on to say that much of his access came from Steve Bannon.

"I don't agree with anything, probably, 100 percent of what Steve says, but I came to appreciate his insights," he said, before explaining Bannon's "enormous frustration" during his time in the White House. "I was the recipient of Steve Bannon's enormous frustration," Wolff said, claiming that "I am the reason he's out" of the White House and eventually his exit from Breitbart News.

Wolff on Trump

When the conversation shifted to Donald Trump's mental fitness, Michael Wolff insisted that everyone he spoke to on staff expressed some sort of concern for the president's well-being. "100 percent of the senior staff of this White House, the people dealing with him on a daily basis" say this presidency is "not just unstable" but also "unpredictable" and "erratic."
