A 50 year old female executive has lost her job after she raised her middle finger at US President Donald Trump as his motorcade drove by her during her exercise routine in Virginia.
Juli Briskman’s protest aimed at the presidential motorcade that roared past her while she was on her cycling path in Northern Virginia last month became an instantly viral photo, according to the Washington Post.
On Halloween, after Briskman gave her bosses at Akima LLC, a government contracting firm, a heads-up that she was the unidentified cyclist in the photo, they took her into a room and fired her, she said, escorting her out of the building with a box of her things.
“I wasn’t even at work when I did that,” Briskman said. “But they told me I violated the code of conduct policy.”
