Justin Caruso | Senior Media Reporter

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod called the recent headlines surrounding an upcoming book on the Trump White House by Michael Wolff a “devastating development” on CNN Thursday.

WATCH:

Axelrod, appearing on, “Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,” said, “Wolff is known to be an impressionistic writer, but even if there are embellishments in the way this information is presented, it’s a devastating portrait and it confirms a lots of fears that people had about the the unpreparedness of this president, the unpreparedness of his staff, and the mercurial nature of his personality in a job that requires steadfastness.”

He continued, “And, you know, the real problem beyond reinforcing those fears, and I suspect by the way that those who love Trump will continue to love Trump, but the real problem is that it becomes a central story now and it will for some time at a time when, at a time when you know, this president was coming out of a break in which he was celebrating having passed a major piece of legislation, his tax cuts and seemed to be getting some footing and now this throws him right back again, and it is a devastating development for him.” (RELATED: Even Axelrod Has ‘No Doubt’ People Are Unfair To Trump)
