I'd describe that person as opportunistic:

  • Taking immediate advantage, often unethically, of any circumstance of possible benefit.

The following saying also comes to mind:

Practice what you preach:

  • Prov. Cliché You yourself should do the things you advise other people to do. Dad always told us we should only watch an hour of television every day, but we all knew he didn't practice what he preached.
