If you haven't seen it yet, a picture has gone viral of someone giving trump the middle finger. According to a New York Post Article, it pays to flip off Trump's motorcade.

Briskman was riding her bike past the presidential caravan Oct. 28 in Sterling, Va., when she was photographed by a White House photographer giving the one-finger salute. The photo quickly went viral.

After the photo gained internet fame, Briskman decided to alert her employer, Akima LLC, a government contractor, that she was the woman in the photograph.

Briskman, a 50-year-old mother of two, was fired the next day.

"They said, 'We're separating from you,'" Briskman told the Huffington Post. "Basically, you cannot have 'lewd' or 'obscene' things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'"

I don't give a crap about the picture, but she's an idiot for telling her employer, which is a government contractor. The picture doesn't show her face, and no one would have ever known it was her. I hope her 15 minutes of fame is worth it.

What response was she expecting from her company? "Congrats for your super awesome political statement!" Her employer relies exclusively on the government for business - totally makes sense to publicly insult the head of your only customer.

Did she have the constitutional right to do this? Yes. But it was incredibly stupid for her to make that picture her Facebook cover pic and tell everyone about it when she works for a freaking government contractor.

One of the problems with Trump hysteria is that people now think that any reflexive anti-Trump rhetoric or action is somehow "heroic" and worthy of respect and adulation.


Nobody thinks that, just you.


Basically hit the lottery considering the crowdfunding efforts on her behalf


shit like that makes me wonder why the fuck I show up to work everyday.


She's raised over $100k. You can't say she isn't good at marketing!


I blame Trump. "He makes me want to get fired from my job."

"Loser terrorists" & "bad hombres"

I'm confused as to why this is receiving attention. I don't think it's wise to give people like this the attention they're clearly seeking.
