A person given to hypocrisy. It comes from the Middle English ipocrite, derived from Old French, passed down from late Latin hypocrita, from Greek hupocrits, actor, from hupokrnesthai, to play a part, pretend; So all Actors in Hollywood are literally hypocrites, especially the most famous ones. Anyone who pretends to be, do or have something they are not, do not or have not, or who acts like they aren't what they are, don't do what they do, or have what they have, are literal hypocrites.

Hypocracy is the practice of professing beliefs, feelings, or virtues that one does not hold or possess; falseness. It is also an act or instance of such falseness.

Hypocrisy is an expression of agreement that is not supported by real conviction as in paying someone with
lip service dissembling, feigning, pretense, pretence - pretending with intention to deceive, a sort of fraud
crocodile tears - a hypocritical display of sorrow; false or insincere weeping; "the secretaries wept crocodile tears over the manager's dilemma"; "politicians shed crocodile tears over the plight of dead soldiers"
hypocrisy is insincerity by virtue of pretending to have qualities or beliefs that you do not really have as in
insincerity, falseness - the quality of not being open or truthful; deceitful or hypocritical
sanctimoniousness, sanctimony - the quality of being hypocritically devout, smarminess, unctuousness, unction, fulsomeness, oiliness, oleaginousness - smug self-serving earnestness

A hypocrite is usually a selfish, self serving bastard or bitch that has no compunction about their own self-rightness in being, doing or having what they want with utter disregard toward all others.
Famous hypocritical quotes:

I didn't have sex with that woman!
Mission Accomplished!
I love that woman!
I'm innocent your Honor!
The war will soon be over!
I didn't do it!

How do you tell if a human being is a hypocrite? If they are breathing they are one.

What did one hypocrite say to the other hypocrite?

If you would just stop being so hypercritical we could both get along.
