Woman Who Flipped Off Trump Gets Fired

But the obscene gesture, captured on October 28 by AFP White House photographer Brendan Smialowski, who was riding in Trump's convoy, quickly went viral.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that her former employer, Akima LLC, is a government construction engineering contractor, and isn't too anxious about the current administration's reaction to an employee calling someone a "libtard".

Aware that the publicity surrounding the photograph could have detrimental implications, Juli approached her employers and confirmed that she was the woman in the photograph.

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.

"Basically, you can not have "lewd" or "obscene" things on your social media". One of her male colleagues who insulted him deliberately a person on Facebook has just been reprimanded while the company was included on his cover photo.

Briskman, acknowledging that her moment of fame gave her "an opportunity... to say something", is now planning to work at an advocacy group "that she believes in". "I'm thinking, he's at the damn golf course again", she said. "I flipped off the motorcade a number of times".

Suddenly, the 50-year-old mother of two found herself looking for a new job. "How can it be less "obscene" than my finger to the president?" "But they told me I violated the code of conduct policy".

Briskman chose to tell Akima's HR department what was happening when she went to work on Monday.

Then, as the motorcade stopped, bisecting her usual route, she changed her route, and punctuated the final insult with another one-fingered salute.

Briskman emphasized to her former employer that she wasn't working when the incident happened and her employer isn't mentioned anywhere on her social media accounts.

Akima has not returned a request for comment.

"They told the owner of the studio she should fire me", she said.

She is now working with attorneys at the American Civil Liberties Union.

A day later, concerns bubbled up, upsetting the bigwigs at the company so much they fired her. Now she's out of a job.

"I'm angry about where our country is right now".

As for why she got so enraged, Briskman said that even she was surprised, while explaining the limited extent of her activism prior to motorcadegate.
