Author Michael Wolff told NBC News that his book "Fire and Fury" is meant to be a reader's "view from the couch" in the White House to all of the happenings around them.

Anchor Chuck Todd noted that the book showed the president in a negative light at times, and asked if Wolff left out any more positive incidents or discoveries.

"If I left out anything, it's probably stuff that was even more damning. It's that bad - it's an extraordinary moment in time," Wolff, author of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," said.

"The real intention of this book is to have readers sit with me on the couch and watch what's going on in the White House," the Paterson, N.J., native said.

"I have no particular politics when it comes to Donald Trump. This is really all about human nature," he added. "I tried to be unobtrusive."

Wolff said he didn't seek to legitimize any agenda by writing his book and instead found his time at the White House "an extraordinary moment in time."

He also reacted to fallout following published quotes attributed to former White House adviser Steve Bannon.

Wolff said Bannon appeared "deeply concerned" about Trump’s ability to govern. "Steve is a man of very clear beliefs and principles," he said. "He made Donald Trump president."

Regarding criticism from Trump's grown children, Wolff said it was clear that Don Jr. and the others are "tolerant [of Trump Sr.] but have no illusions.
