Juli Briskman’s middle-finger salute of Trump’s motorcade in Sterling Va. went viral

In an interview with HuffPost, Briskman stated that she, "was stunned that someone had taken a picture of her giving Trump the middle finger".

She was biking in Sterling, Virginia, on October 28, as President Donald Trump's motorcade whisked past her, driving away from one of his golf courses.

According to the White House pool reporter on duty that day, Trump had been on his way back to Washington, DC, after spending some time at the Trump National Golf Club.

When asked about her reasons for flipping off the president, Briskman told the Huffington Post, "He was passing by and my blood just started to bio".

Matt Duchene to Senators, Kyle Turris to Predators in Three-Team Trade
Hammond, 29, has spent the season with the AHL Belleville Senators and has a 2.21 goals-against average and a.925 save percentage. Colorado entered Sunday 8-5-0 after finishing with just 48 points last season, the fewest by a non-expansion team since 1998-99.

Realizing how viral the image became, Briskman, dubbed a "she-ro" on social media, walked into the human resources department at Akima LLC, a government contractor, to give them a heads-up about her newfound fame.

"They told the owner of the studio she should fire me", she said. Akima LLC was a contributor in Mr Trump's presidential campaign.

Despite the fact that Briskman never publicly confirmed that she was the cyclist, her bosses informed her that she was in violation of the company social media policy simply because she posted the photo on her social media pages. On Tuesday, she was called into a meeting and the company said she violated the company's social media policy by posting the photo to Twitter and Facebook and using it as her profile picture.

Briskman says she argued that she should be able to keep her job, since a male colleague was only reprimanded for calling someone a "fucking libtard asshole" on Facebook. Despite no identifying features being visible in the photograph, Briskman thought it would be best to give her company a heads-up.

Meanwhile, Iowa State's offense sputtered. "We've got to be more effective in situational football", Campbell said. Now the Cyclones have to deal with a Mountaineer team that does not care what Iowa State has accomplished.

"I'd do it again", Briskman concluded.

Because Briskman was in charge of the firm's social media presence during her six-month tenure there, she recently flagged something that did link her company to some pretty ugly stuff. Isn't it funny?' " she said.

Briskman has reportedly reached out to the American Civil Liberties Union about the firing, but she's also already thinking about what's next. "I'm thinking, 'DACA recipients are getting kicked out". He pulled ads for open for open enrollment in Obamacare.

A Democrat, Briskman said she plans to look for a new job with an advocacy group that she believes in, such as Planned Parenthood or PETA. "I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something".
