A woman flipped off President Trump’s motorcade and it was caught in a photo taken by a White House photographer, which then went viral.
According to the Huffington Post, Juli Brishman has been let go from her job as a government contractor at Akima LLC, after the photo went viral.
She told the Huffington Post that after the photo surfaced, her bosses told her she had violated the company’s social media policy because she had used the photo as her profile picture.
Briskman recalled, “They said, ‘We’re separating from you,'” she continued, “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things on your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”
The marketing and communications employee claims her “blood just started to boil” when she saw President Trump’s motorcade.
She said, “I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in ObamaCare,” Briskman continued, “Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”
She arrogantly added, “I flipped off the motorcade a number of times,” and claims that she does not regret her disrespectful actions, “In some ways, I’m doing better than ever.”
“I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled,” she concluded, “This was an opportunity for me to say something.”
I think her company did the right thing in letting her go. She is making a trashy display of herself and it reflects upon the company employing her. Hopefully she learns from this situation.
