Democrats Win Senate, Win the Trifecta

The Senate is now 50-50 Democrat/Republican, but VP Kamala Harris has a tie-breaking vote. Still, 60 votes are usually required to pass legislation in the Senate, due to filibuster rules.

Since Trump was elected, Democrats have taken the House, the Presidency and now the Senate. The Republican party is in shambles, because they followed Trump, either to satisfy their inner-fascist or because they are too afraid to stand up to him, or both. He's had his moments, especially with three Supreme Court appointments (aided by McConnell's corruption in the process), but Trump has spoiled most of what he's touched. I don't think there's much doubt he will be remembered as the worst president in US history. Do you?
