…and says that it is the most anti-democratic institution (next to the Judiciary, of course)…

And now that your disgust is activated, it was actually Stephen Colbert who just said it.

I've thought the Senate should be abolished for many years. So when I saw your post, my first thought was, "huh, a Trump supporter wants something good. Well, I guess even a stopped clock is right twice a day." I was disappointed when it turned out to not be true.

The Senate is an abomination rooted in the days when the states couldn't decide whether to be a confederacy or a republic, and so created a clunky, undemocratic, compromise design. The Senate should have been abolished right after the Civil War, when the issue was supposedly settled once and for all in favor of a republic. America had a huge chance to fix its design problems, but it was squandered. They settled for just ending slavery and made no effort to fix a single problem passed that.
