Michael Wolff, author of the highly anticipated book, "Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency."lll," is admitting that former President Donald Trump is actually even crazier than he initially thought.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Wolff recalled the former president's desperation after losing the White House. In the days that followed his defeat, Wolff shed light on how Trump ventured outside of his orbit to find "good lawyers" because those around him refused to do his bidding.

Wolff also recalled Trump's demanding calls to attorney generals in various swing states. Although the high ranking attorneys had no way of overturning election results in their states, Trump continued to demand they do so. During that interview, Wolff also admitted he believes the former president is crazier than he initially seemed.

"I think that anyone who speaks to Donald Trump should be switching on their iPhone to tape what's going on," Wolff said on MSNBC. "Donald Trump is only half aware of what he's saying, it just spews out."

Wolff's latest concerns about Trump his recent interview with Marc Pritzker where he discussed his new book. During the interview, he explained the dangers of Trump's post election rhetoric and actions.

"It's "dangerous" because he's in some other reality and manages to bring a good part of the country along with him. Even though there was not one single person in the White House, in his campaign, in his family, who took any of this seriously or who believed in any of this, you know? No one believed that he won the election. No one believed he could do anything to meaningfully disrupt the results of the election. No one believed it. No one, 100 percent no one believed that Joe Biden was not going to be the president on Jan. 20."
