Yesterday, Sonia Kruger shocked the nation when she confirmed to Lisa Wilkinson during a chat that she would like to close Australian borders to Muslims migrants.

The comment triggered intense backlash from people around Australia, as well as supporters who applauded her for having the courage to speak her mind.

The TV presenter has received an incredible amount of attention since yesterday’s comments, with some meaner people commenting on her appearance during the chat with Lisa Wilkinson and co-host David Campbell.

She took the opportunity on Today Extra this morning to address what happened yesterday and acknowledge that her views may have been considered extreme.

She referenced and image of a deceased baby covered by a sheet in Nice, who has been killed in the attack and described how rocked she was by the image.

No doubt picturing her own little girl, Maggie, in the same situation.
