Juli Briskman has no regrets. She’s lost her marketing job with US construction and engineering company Akima, but she told Huff Post she’s “doing better than ever”.
Briskman (50) was photographed on her bike last month giving Donald Trump’s presidential cavalcade the middle finger – naturally, he was leaving his golf course e – and the image promptly went viral. She was happy about this, enough to make the photograph her profile picture on Twitter and Facebook.
In fact, she had flipped off Trump several times as his car went past. Alas, her employer, a government contractor, has decided it is “separating” from her on the basis that she has violated the company’s social media policy with obscene content.
Briskman now says she will look for work at an advocacy group that she believes in. Trump continues to believe in nothing except himself.
