The woman who lost her job after she was photographed giving Trump’s motorcade the middle finger has inspired people to raise funds on her behalf.
At the time of this writing, Juli Briskman has received thousands of job offers and a GoFundMe set up on her behalf has earned $60,000 — with a goal of $100,000
“Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all,” the page reads. “This week we learned that she was fired from her employer for exercising her first amendment rights. You can show your support by donating here.”
As of Monday afternoon, it has raised over $60,000.
A few days after the image went viral late last month, Briskman told her employer, government contracting firm Akima LLC, that she was the one who gave the commander-in-chief her middle finger unsheathed, as opposed to letting them find out through another source.
The company responded by firing the 50-year-old marketing executive, claiming her social media presence was “obscene” because she shared the image, while the same company actually kept on one employee who she claims called someone else a “f—ing libtard a–hole” online while featuring the company as his cover photo.
“I really wasn’t going to talk about this until I remembered the fellow that I actually flagged to the company that he had written very obscene things in someone else’s conversation on Facebook,” Briskman told Megyn Kelly in an interview on NBC.
“He did not get fired. He was allowed to clean up his Facebook page.”
Good job, America.
