  • Woman fired after pulling finger at Trump

Juli Briskman, former marketing executive at Akima LLC, lost her job after informing her bosses that she was the woman in a viral photo of a cyclist presenting an obscene hand gesture to a presidential motorcade.

The image went viral after it was taken on 28 October in Virginia, close to a Trump golf resort.

"He was passing by and my blood just started to boil", she told Huffington Post.

On Halloween, after Briskman gave her bosses at Akima LLC, a government contracting firm, a heads-up that she was the unidentified cyclist in the photo, they took her into a room and fired her, she said, escorting her out of the building with a box of her things. She tells HuffPost that in the future she hopes to work for an organization like Planned Parenthood or PETA. They told her that because Akima was a government contractor, the photo could hurt their business, she said.

Briskman's own form of protest against the President was a spur-of-the-moment choice she made while thinking about what she considers to be Trump's poor behavior and job performance.

As for her reason for all that anger towards President Trump, Briskman quite bluntly stated that his love of leisure has been filling her with a growing rage.

However, it seems her old company's HR department has shifting interpretations of what constitutes "obscene" behavior on social media, as a male former co-worker was not fired after calling someone a "fucking Libtard asshole" on Facebook.


"In some ways, I'm doing better than ever", Briskman said to HuffPost.

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

Akima, a holding company of multiple construction, technology and operations firms, does work with the U.S. government. "You can't see her face, she is totally unidentified in that picture", he said.

Briskman said her supervisors showed her the clause in the contract when they fired her. He pulled ads for open for open enrollment in Obamacare. According to Briskman's account, when she alerted management about the post, the director was afforded the opportunity to clean up his Facebook posting and to carry on working for the company.

"Just a single third of Puerto Rico has control".

Briskman added "I flipped off the motorcade a number of times". "I'm angry about where our country is right now, I am appalled". The company's Bloomberg profile says that Akima is led by CEO Bill Monet.
