Cyclist who gave Trump the finger loses her job

When President Donald Trump was on his way to the National Golf Club, a 50-year-old woman Juli Briskman gave Mr. Trump the finger as his motorcade passed her while she was cycling on a road near the golf club.

 

 

The mother of two, said, “He was passing by and my blood just started to boil.”

 

The incident was captured by the AFP White House photographer Brendan Smialowski and also the picture went viral on all the social media handles. She posted the picture as a profile pic on her Facebook and Twitter pages.

 

Now, this has cost the job of the single mother. Her bosses at Akima LLC, a builder that does work for the US government and military, told that she had to go.
