This is the “nuclear” option and the Republicans considered using it when the Democrats filibustered every single judicial nominee.

No, that was different. They were going to change the rules of the senate to stop filibusters on judicial nominees, which was something the Dems were doing that hadn’t been done before. They weren’t going to remove the filibuster entirely or push through legislation that nobody wanted.
It’s good that someone here recalls recent history.
