Woman Fired From Job While She Flipping off President Trump's Motorcade

She was fed up with US President Donald Trump's love of playing golf when there were more important things to handle.

A woman who used a photograph of herself flipping off President Donald Trump's motorcade on social media was sacked from her job for the image.

Nope. "I'd do it again", she said.

"Then the ball started rolling", she said.

However, Briskman says she doesn't regret her actions. He pulled ads for open for open enrollment in Obamacare.

That realization came during a bike ride where Briskman had been thinking about the devastation in Puerto Rico, recently introduced immigration bans by the current administration and the mass shooing in Las Vegas which had claimed the lives of over 50 people just a few days back. "I'm thinking, 'DACA recipients are getting kicked out". Although Juli Briskman was not on work time and was not identifiable in the agency photos taken when the politician's vehicle passed her in Sterling, Virginia, her employers nevertheless fired her.

Briskman told the Huffington Post the reason she was sacked was because their employees are not allowed to post content to their social media accounts that may be considered "lewd" or "obscene" and according to Ms. Briskman, her gesture to President Trump's motorcade was considered "obscene".

During the Women's March the day after Trump's inauguration, she couldn't make it into D.C. Instead, she said, she stood in sombre protest outside the Central Intelligence Agency with a sign that read, "Not My President".

Briskman worked for Akima LLC, a Virginia-based company that holds several government contracts.

“I flipped off the motorcade a number of times.”.

Briskman flashing her middle-finger became a viral photo across social media. "You're going to have to look that up", Ms. Briskman told her.

Akima has not returned calls or emails to press inquiries. She was escorted from the building.

Her bosses said Tuesday that she was sacked.

She's now calling out a double standard in her office, saying a colleague had called someone a "f**king libtard asshole" on Facebook earlier in the year.

"They told the owner of the studio she should fire me", she said. "I'm angry about where our country is right now".

Briskman's bosses at Akima LLC called her into their office the next day and chose to tell her the bad news. "I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something".
