This morning on the View, Kelly Osborne (Daughter of Sharon and Ozzy) made a "gaffe":

After Rosie Perez made the thoughtful point that she does agree that immigration reform is an issue that should be addressed, but making racist remarks contributes nothing to the conversation, Kelly Osbourne let loose with a whopper, saying: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”

In the couple of seconds after the words came out of Osbourne’s mouth, you could have heard a pin drop in The View studio, before Perez justifiably snapped at her. However, according to E! Online, Perez was somehow apologizing to Osbourne by the end of the show for being overly sensitive because I have no idea.

Well, yeah—I suppose she has a point... Who will fill this critical role should our leaders finally act on behalf of their legal constituents and summarily deport the invaders? I'd like to think the completely skill-less Somali refugees could pick up the slack, though one wonders if such a task is beyond a people to whom indoor plumbing is foreign.
