Journalist Ronan Farrow's latest book The War on Peace is causing waves for its frank interview segments with individuals who have had positions of power in national diplomacy efforts.

During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Farrow discussed the surprisingly open comments from President Donald Trump's shortlived Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"Tillerson, if he had any logic, knew that he was going to be fired on some level,” Farrow said. “Maybe that’s why he’s so frank in this book. He basically says ‘I didn’t know what I was doing, I wasn’t experienced enough for it.'”

Farrow also took shots at the current state of the U.S.  State Department, saying that it's "apparent to anyone looking at the State Department" that it has morphed into a catastrophe resembling a "dumpster fire.”
