Woman Loses Her Job For Flipping Trump The Bird – But Is Remorseless

Juli Briskman may have been declared as a being a hero for flipping the bird to Donald Trump’s motorcade, but it seems her employer wasn’t impressed and actually fired her over the protest.

Briskman was going to tell her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, about the photo, but was instead told that she violated the company’s social media policy because she used the image on her Twitter and Facebook pages as her profile picture.

She explained:

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you.‘ Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So, they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”

Despite pointing out that she wasn’t at work when the shot was taken and there being no mention of her employer on her social media pages, Akima didn’t back down. In fact, Briskman said that she was particularly mad because a male employee had been able to keep his job despite having Akima as his cover photo on Facebook and calling someone “a f***ing Libtard a**hole” on Facebook.

Briskman contended:

“How is that any less ‘obscene’ than me flipping off the president? How is that fair?”

Briskman also revealed what led her to offer a f*ck you to the President, saying:

“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil. I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrolment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again. I flipped off the motorcade a number of times.”

Despite losing her job, Briskman says she is “doing better than ever,” adding:

“I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something.”

As for work, Briskman says she is going to find a job at an organization she believes in, such as Planned Parenthood.

What do you think? Were Akima LLC right to fire Briskman, or did they overstep the mark?
