Nevada Sen. Harry Reid (D) is retiring from the Senate come January, his seat safely ensconced in the Democratic hands of Catherine Cortez Masto, who won election Tuesday and will become the nation's first Latina senator. And with the burden of literal political correctness lifted off him, it seems Reid is ready to say what he really feels about Donald Trump, America's president-elect.

In a brutal statement released Friday, Reid eviscerated Trump, calling for him to "roll back the tide of hate he unleashed." He also mentioned the anecdotal fear the coming Trump presidency has evoked in minorities, saying, "I have heard more stories in the past 48 hours of Americans living in fear of their own government and their fellow Americans than I can remember hearing in five decades in politics."
