That's true for all words not just "evil". As for your claim that using
"evil" to describe Donald Trump is "*almost always politically-motivated
hyperbole*", well that may or may not be true, but I don't care because the
motivation for uttering a statement does not change its truth or falsehood,
and "Donald Trump is evil" remains correct; saying otherwise would be
nearly as silly as claiming that "ignoramus" is also an improper word to
describe that creature.
