Republican Strategist, Lisa Boothe assumed she could appear on CNN with Poppy Harlow and spew the same half truths and talking points that she has tried before. It wasn't that long ago that Boothe appeared on the very same network and tried the exact same approach to discredit Hillary Clinton on the issue of the email non scandal. She said,

Hillary Clinton is an out of a touch elitist. The Obama Administration has been marred with a lack of transparency and Hillary Clinton is a part of that.

Today, she was ready to talk about the hypocrisy of an aristocratic person like Hillary Clinton having the audacity to identify with people, and advocate to bridge the gap in income inequality.

She calls for toppling the one percent, she is the one percent...This woman hasn't admittedly driven a car for 18 years...We haven't heard her differenentiating from the policies of President Obama that have been disastrous for the middle class. Their wages have diminished and their job prospects have diminished too!"

Marc Lamont Hill, a professor of African Studies at Moorhouse college called her bluff.

"I don't think the hypocrite card should be played here... Let's look at what she is proposing: taking on Wall Street, advocating for raising the minimum wage, and health care."

She is a regular on Fox News having been on Cashin' In many times, and she is used to spewing her lies unchallenged, but it was a bit different today with Harlow. Marc Lamont Hill threw names like Willard Romney and the Bush Dynasty at her and she wasn't able to counter that with any defense that these prominent Republicans were even more ridiculously ill-prepared to legislate any remedy for the vast income inequality that plagues us all. Hill got in the last word and Lisa Boothe was left looking like a shallow mouthpiece for the real hypocrites: the GOP.
