Juli Briskman

The Irish Times - Business - - BUSINESS / INTERVIEW -

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.
