Cyclist who flipped off Trump's motorcade fired from her job

Cyclist who flipped off Trump's motorcade fired from her job

According to The Huffington Post, Juli Briskman stuck up the middle finger while riding her bike as Trump's fleet of vehicles passed her by.

In the photo-you can see it here-a female bicyclist is seen flipping the middle finger to the Trump motorcade as it passes her in Sterling, Va.

"It was just a heads-up", she said. Our institutions would rather we fall in line like so many mindless peons than show any sense of self-worth or moral courage, and after a photo of Briskman telling that turd in the Oval Office to sit on it and spin went viral, the 50-year-old mother of two was sacked from her job.

She therefore questions why she was immediately dismissed from her role. When she told her employer that it was her in the photo, they fired her.

Briskman, who isn't at all a fan of President Trump, couldn't restrain herself from flipping off America's Commander-in-Chief. The company allegedly told Briskman that she violated their social media policies by making it her profile picture on various social media sites.

During the Women's March the day after Trump's inauguration, she couldn't make it into D.C. Instead, she said, she stood in sombre protest outside the Central Intelligence Agency with a sign that read, "Not My President".

Ms. Briskman told the website that the consequences for her violation were unfair since another employee was permitted to keep his job after deleting a Facebook post calling someone a "a f-ing Libtard a-hole".

The US cut its diplomatic relations with Iran following the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since. The embassy was stormed by Iranian students on November 4, 1979, and its personnel were held hostage for 444 days.

"In some ways, I'm doing better than ever", she told HuffPost. Bosses then called her into a meeting, she said.

"I'm considering, DACA beneficiaries are getting kicked out".

Virginia, however, has “at will” employment laws, meaning private-sector employers can fire people for any reason. "He pulled promotions for open enlistment in ObamaCare", Briskman said.

On Saturday, Briskman was interviewed by the HuffPost about what's next for her, aside from more bicycling trips.

Briskman's bosses at Akima LLC called her into their office the next day and made a decision to tell her the bad news. She says she'd do what she did again. Only one third of Puerto Rico has power.

In fact, the person he aimed that comment at was so offended by the intrusion into the conversation and the coarse nature of it that he challenged the director on representing Akima that way. "I am apalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something".
