Woman Fired After Giving Trump The Middle Finger Gets $60,000 From Supporters by YoungRichRuler(m): 4:32pm On Nov 14
Supporters of Julie Briskman, who was fired from her job after she was photographed raising the middle finger to Donald Trump's motorcade, have raised more than $61,000 in a crowdfunding effort.

Briskman lost her government contractor job last week after a photo of her giving Trump's motorcade the finger in northern Virginia, on October 28, made worldwide news.

Despite the setback, 2,600 supporters of the mother-of-two have raised more than $61,000 on a GoFundMe page in just seven days.



The campaign description reads: "Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all. 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."

The crowdfunding effort comes after Briskman claimed she was called into her employer's office and let go.

They said, 'We're separating from you,'" Briskman told HuffPost.

"Basically, you cannot have 'lewd' or 'obscene' things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'"

The day I found out that people have seen hatting trump as a social duty, is the day I personally started loving him.

I am not proud of her and will not raise funds for her.....

Even if you despise your president or ruler , you don't have the right to disrespect him to his face!

We must be careful of what we promote.

Seriously? This incident happened about a month ago, how long would they keep up with a crowd funding for a grown arse woman who has bills to pay? America is an institution, and no matter how they hate Trump, they dont joke with the components of that institution ( Presidency, Flag , Anthem , Constitution, Capitol hill etc) If the institution fvcks you up for obscenities and breach of acceptable behaviour, believe me, her best shot is the courts. To get another job, she would require a recommendation from her previous employer. Tell me how that would work out for her , except she would accept menial and part time /contract jobs

Funding a girl who does not respect the exalted office of the number one citizen (by moral, social and communal sanity) of her country?

She should thank her stars, she didn't do that in Africa. ProHuman rights would be debating why the security detail womanhandled her.


There are things that should be left unsaid, if it meant to be said, there are acceptable and supportive channels to use.


Wrong move that could backfire
