Hickenlooper Dodges Capitalist Label

This morning on MSNBC, John Hickenlooper tried to dodge the “capitalist” label after bragging about his business experience for years.

VIDEO: Joe Scarborough Repeatedly Asks Hickenlooper Whether He Is A Proud Capitalist And Hickenlooper Said He’s “Not Sure About The Labels.” 
VIDEO: Immediately After The Interview, Joe Scarborough And Willie Geist Remarked On How Hickenlooper Was Afraid Of The Label “Capitalist” Because Of Fear Of The Left.
 
BUT, in the past, Hickenlooper has repeatedly referred to himself as a capitalist, a businessman, and an entrepreneur.
Including this account in his ex-wife Helen Thorpe’s 2009 book, where Hickenlooper introduced himself to others saying, “I’m John Hickenlooper, and I’m a capitalist.”
