Cyclist who gave Trump the finger is showered with money

Juli Briskman, an accomplished flipper of birds, is getting the support she deserves after getting canned from her job. "This week we learned that she was sacked from her employer for exercising her first amendment rights", reads the fundraising page which was set up by Rob Mello.

A GoFundMe campaign with a $100,000 goal was set up eight days ago.

Briskman's raised middle finger was caught by news photographers as Trump's motorcade passed her on October 28 as he left Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia. The 50-year-old mother of two had been working for government contractor Akima LLC, who didn't take kindly to the attention she had brought on herself and the company.

Now, wise people in support of flipping off our current POTUS as often as possible are stepping up to raise money for Briskman's post-employment existence. She continued, "Basically, you can not have "lewd" or "obscene" things in your social media".

"They said, 'We're separating from you, '" Briskman told HuffPost.

What Recent Ownership Trends Suggest About Marathon Oil Corporation (MRO)'s Future Performance
Jefferies Group LLC raised the price target on November 3 boosting the projection from $14.00 to $16.50 with a rating of "Buy". The sale was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is accessible through the SEC website .

"I'm thinking, he's at the damn golf course again". "All proceeds are being donated directly to Juli", the post added.

"My finger said what I was feeling", Briskman later told CNN.

Briskman may not be an inspiration to those in favor of Trump, but to the anti-Trump contingent, her act serves as a simple and iconic indictment of the president's tenure thus far.

Though Briskman later reported that one of her male coworkers who called a Facebook user "a f**king Libtard asshole" somehow did not face the same punishment she did, she was happy that her brief moment of fame gave her "an opportunity... to say something".

She proudly posted it as her profile picture on her Facebook and Twitter pages.
