Oh Please! Over $80k Raised for Disrespectful Cyclist Fired for Flipping Off Trump

A cyclist was fired from her job, after a photo of her flipping off President Trump’s motorcade went viral. Now she is raking in the cash for her disrespect.

Juli Brishman was let go from her position as a government contractor at Akima LLC. The marketing and communications employee claims her “blood just started to boil” when she saw President Trump’s motorcade.

She said, “I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in ObamaCare,” Briskman continued, “Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”

She arrogantly added, “I flipped off the motorcade a number of times,” and claims that she does not regret her disrespectful actions, “In some ways, I’m doing better than ever.”

“I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled,” she concluded,  “This was an opportunity for me to say something.”

Since her lewd behavior, a GoFundMe page was created and has already raised more than $80,000, with a goal of $100,000.

On the fundraising page, there is a “message from Juli.” It reads:

Dear Friends,

After I was terminated from my job on October 31, I was driving home and as you can imagine, my thoughts were racing. I never imagined that my “one-finger salute” to the Presidential motorcade and its occupant would cost me my job. The actions of my company were swift and unexpected.

I was shocked and worried about many things:

How and when to tell my children? (my daughter’s birthday was days away and of course I wanted her to have a happy one)

How would I pay for healthcare?

How much money do I have in my savings to cover our mortgage and general living expenses in Northern Virginia and how long will it last?

How long will it take to land another job?

This is the short list.

Through your very generous donations, many of those heavy burdens have been lifted.

I am not sure what the future holds, but I am buoyed by your support. For now, I can just say THANK YOU and promise to be a good steward of these funds.

Juli Briskman
