Yes, words do matter. One of the dictionary definitions of ‘evil’ is ‘harmful, or tending to harm’. And, Donald Trump IS evil. There are people you would consider evil who have hurt/ harmed fewer people than Donald Trump has. The Central Park Five can definitely tell you. His candidacy has harmed US society in ways that only the future will fully reveal. As far as harmful, hateful (read evil) influences go, Donald Trump’s rhetoric is one of the worst the world has ever encountered. Ask those of us in far reaches of the globe following it all with disbelief.
