Julie Briskman, the woman who thought it was a wise move to flip Trump off twice as he was heading back to Washington, was basking in the praise of deranged liberals for giving the president the middle finger, evidently didn’t consider the fact that her company — which holds several federal contracts — would not look favorably on her actions.
But after meeting with her superiors who immediately fired her for her actions, she should now know. She will now learn that the praise of liberals do not pay as well as her former job.
According to the Daily Caller:
As Trump returned from the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., Sunday, Oct. 29, a woman later self-identified as Julie Briskman, made the rude gesture to the president’s motorcade twice as she was cycling on the same road.
According to the pool reporter on duty that day, “POTUS’s motorcade departed the Trump National Golf Club at 3.12pm, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs-down sign. Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger.”
“The motorcade had to slow and the cyclist caught up, still offering the finger, before turning off in a different direction. Motorcade is now gathering speed and heading for DC.”
At the time, Briskman was working for Akima LLC, a Virginia-based company that holds several government contracts, doing marketing and communications work. As the photo went viral with users calling her a “heroine,” Briskman’s bosses called her into a meeting Tuesday and gave her the bad news.
“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,’” Briskman told The Huffington Post in an interview, describing the firing. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”
As a government contractor, Akima LLC was concerned that the photo might hurt their ability to win government contracts, The Huffington Post reports. Briskman has no regrets about her gesture, and is even a little pleased she had the chance to make a statement.
She now claims she does not regret her actions because Trump stopped Obama’s illegal DACA program and that she was angry that he had been at the golf course again. I guess it was OK for Obama who was very lazy in office and spent long periods of time on vacation, but for someone like President Trump, who has a reputation of working even on holidays, it’s a mortal sin.
“In some ways, I’m doing better than ever. I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something.”
“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil. I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”
It sounds to me like she hasn’t learned her lesson and that she suffers from the same liberal derangement that led to the shooting of Republicans at the baseball field and Rand Paul’s neighbor who broke five of his ribs and damaged his lungs.
