Cyclist fired after 'flipping off' President Trump's motorcade

Juli Briskman flipped off Trump’s motorcade and was fired from her job for

WASHINGTON ― You may have seen this photo of President Donald Trump's motorcade winding down a wooded road last week as a woman on a bicycle pedaled by ― giving the middle finger to Trump.

A woman's immediate expression after witnessing Donald Trump's motorcade pass her by has resulted in her termination.

[The president] was passing by and my blood just started to boil.

Briskman told the site she chose to tell her employer (Akima LLC, a government contractor) about going viral the Monday after it unexpectedly happened to give them a heads up.

The mother-of-two tried to argue that the incident didn't take place in work time and her Facebook and Twitter pages didn't mention her place of work.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Briskman seemed at a loss for why she would be fired yet the other employee would be allowed to remain with the company.

Indian Women win Asia Cup Hockey after 13 years
On the way to the tournament victory, India first beat China, Malaysia and Singapore in the group stages. Earlier, the two teams were locked 1-1 at regulation time, and were 4-4 in the penalty shoot out.

The photo made the rounds of social media over the weekend, and the woman was sacked Tuesday, with her employer citing a probation against having lewd or obscene things in her social media account. She said that they then fired her, escorting her from the building with a box of her possessions. But that didn't stop Briskman from complaining about the perceived injustice, citing the case of a male colleague who was reprimanded-but not fired-for calling someone a "f*****g Libtard asshole" on Facebook.

Ms Briskman says she has no regrets, and would do it again.

'As a member of an internal, agency-style marketing team that supports more than 35 government contracting companies, I wear many hats from writer to marketer to WordPress editor and social media strategist, ' writes Briskman.

After the cyclist admitted to her bosses at Akima LLC that she was the one in the photo, she was sacked. According to Briskman's account, when she alerted management about the post, the director was afforded the opportunity to clean up his Facebook posting and to carry on working for the company. "He pulled promotions for open enlistment in ObamaCare", Briskman said.

But that doesn't mean she's regretful about speaking out against the president.

She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power". She was only employed at the company for six months before being let go. The motorcade stopped, bisecting her usual route. "I'm angry about where our country is right now, I am appalled". Akima hasn't commented about its decision publicly.
