How to use hypocritical in a sentence?

  1. David Frank:

    It is not hypocritical to use fossil fuels in order to try to get ourselves off of fossil fuels, particularly since this is simply unavoidable!

  2. Hank Sheinkopf:

    Is there an irony here because he spoke incessantly about the income gap and is now earning from those same people he criticized? Yes it is, should we expect it? Yes, we should because all former presidents do this. He went on the attack against Wall Street and now he’s being fed by those same people he called ‘fat cats’. It’s more hypocritical than ironic.

  3. Daniella Greenbaum:

    I know that I did what I needed to do. It wasn’t about proving a point as much as this: I write about the importance of viewpoint diversity and about why more speech is always better, all the time. If I read about this situation, I’d be writing a column defending the writer, so I thought, how can I write about these issues and get paralyzed by fear of job security when I’m confronted with it in my real life? It seemed hypocritical to me to do anything different.

  4. Joe Schrank:

    Some say it's hypocritical because, you know, you're supposed to go to rehab to get off drugs, and cessation of drug use can be a goal for some people, but pacing is also important.

  5. Robert Speel:

    It’ll be interesting to see if voters turn against the Republican Party, seeing them as hypocritical.
