Woman Fired For Giving Trump Middle Finger In Photo

Juli Briskman flipped off Trump's motorcade and was sacked from her job for it.

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.

She said when she saw Trump's motorcade come up alongside her, her "blood just began to bubble".

Briskman says she was promptly fired from the government contracting firm and escorted out for violating the "code of conduct policy".

Briskman, who isn't at all a fan of President Trump, couldn't restrain herself from flipping off America's Commander-in-Chief.

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". "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'" Akima apparently believed the photo could reflect badly upon their business.

Briskman told the news website she was outraged because a male colleague had kept his job after making lewd comments on his Facebook page, which listed his employer. "In some ways, I'm doing better than ever", she says. "I'm considering, he's at the damn green once more", she proceeded.

The 50-year-old mother-of-two had reportedly been at the government contractor firm for six months working in communications.

This did not comfort her bosses and she was still given the boot.

Nevertheless, this one cost Briskman her job. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare.

State law in Virginia indicates that employers can fire employees at any time for any reason.

Despite losing her job, Briskman wasn't too broken up about the firing.

Her bosses at Akima, who have not returned emails and calls requesting comment, showed her the blue-highlighted section 4.3 of their social media policy when they canned her.

She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power".

"I'm considering, DACA beneficiaries are getting kicked out". "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. "I am apalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something".
