Last week we reported that the woman who flipped off President Donald Trump’s motorcade off was fired form her job. Since then a GoFundMe account was created to help the woman with her bills and etc.
“Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all,” the page reads. “This week we learned that she was fired from her employer for exercising her first amendment rights. You can show your support by donating here.”
As of Monday afternoon, it has raised over $60,000.
A few days after the image went viral late last month, Briskman told her employer, government contracting firm Akima LLC, that she was the one who gave the commander-in-chief her middle finger unsheathed, as opposed to letting them find out through another source.
The company responded by firing the 50-year-old marketing executive, claiming her social media presence was “obscene” because she shared the image, while the same company actually kept on one employee who she claims called someone else a “f—ing libtard a–hole” online while featuring the company as his cover photo.
“I really wasn’t going to talk about this until I remembered the fellow that I actually flagged to the company that he had written very obscene things in someone else’s conversation on Facebook,” Briskman told Megyn Kelly in an interview on NBC.
“He did not get fired. He was allowed to clean up his Facebook page.”
