Australians waking up on Monday, July 18 who chose to start their work week with the bright orange backdrops of The Today Show found themselves watching a decidedly dark segment, addressing the question, "Do more migrants increase the risk of terror attacks?"

"Television presenter" and former host of Australia's Dancing with the Stars Sonia Kruger responded with a line of rhetoric usually associated with a certain American businessman.

Because apparently Australians aren't yet numb to this kind of talk, Kruger actually felt compelled to acknowledge the social media backlash to her opinion. Unfortunately, she made it so much worse.
