Woman Who Flipped Off Trump Motorcade Fired From Government Contract Job

Juli Briskman Facebook page

She told The Post that she's not much of an activist; she used to work for the government in the diplomatics corps, traveling around the world.

The woman's name is Juli Briskman. But they wanted her to "be professional", she said.

"I think I gave money for clean water once, ' said Briskman, who also got semi-involved in the Woman's Day protest by standing outside the Central Intelligence Agency with a 'Not My President" sign.

A photo of Briskman flipping the bird to Trump and co. quickly went viral after a White House photographer shared it.

The official reason Briskman was given was for violating the company's social media policy, as she had changed her Facebook and Twitter profile photos to the now iconic photo.

“They said, ‘Were separating from you, ” Briskman told the Huffington Post. But became aware after a few friends thought they recognized her and tagged her in the photo, asking.

While Briskman wasn't working at the time she did this, and she doesn't mention where she works in her social media profiles, the company told her it could hurt their business. According to the Washington Post, she voluntarily gave the information that she was the cyclist in the photograph to her employers at Akima LLC, a government contracting firm, at Halloween.

Other specs remain unchanged, including a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB and 8GB RAM for 64GB and 128GB storage respectively. The OnePlus 5T is rumored to arrive this fall, following up on the OnePlus 5, which was released this past June.

Since Virginia is an employment-at-will state, Akima has full discretion over who it fires.

She's now calling out a double standard in her office, saying a colleague had called someone a "f**king libtard asshole" on Facebook earlier in the year.

A few of her friends thought they recognized her, tagged her on the photo and asked. "How is that fair?" Bustle has reached out to Akima for comment, but has not heard back as of the time of publication. In the aftermath, HuffPost reports, Briskman was sacked from her job.

[The president] was passing by and my blood just started to boil. “Im thinking, Daca recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open for open enrollment in Obamacare. She was thinking about the devastation in Puerto Rico, about the carnage of last month's mass-shooting in Las Vegas, and about deportations.

"I'd do it again", Briskman concluded. She added she has no regrets and is happy to be an image of protest that resonates with many Americans.

After the cyclist admitted to her bosses at Akima LLC that she was the one in the photo, she was sacked.
