Hypocrisy – ‘The practice of claiming to have higher standards or more noble beliefs than is the case.’

Synonyms: sanctimoniousness, sanctimony, pietism, piousness, affected piety, affected superiority, false virtue, cant, humbug, pretence, posturing, speciousness, empty talk.

Just look at the list of synonyms. Doesn’t that sum up so well, many of the Trump demonstrators?   Not only are these people sanctimonious and superior, but as I said on BBC radio yesterday (see below),  these people seem to be wealthy enough to have a lot of spare time on their hands.  How do normal working people spend a Friday parading around London? Do they not have a job?
