$70000 Raised For Cyclist Who Was Fired For Giving Trump The Finger

A GoFundMe for the bicyclist fired for flipping off the President's motorcade has raised over $100000

A cyclist who got fired from her job for making a rude gesture to the United States President Donald Trump's motorcade raised more than Dollars 70,000 in donations into a crowdfunding site set up.

Former marketing professional Juli Briskman was cycling near Trump National Golf Club on the banks of the Potomac River, about 40 kilometers northwest of the White House when the President's convoy passed her.

The photo of Briskman giving the finger only showed her from the back, unidentifiable, with the left arm out and middle finger up. "But they told me I violated the code of conduct policy", Briskman said to media.

A GoFundMe account set up on behalf of Juli Briskman has raked in over $70,000 in donations since it was activated a week ago. Briskman thanked supporters writing, "I am not sure what the future holds, but I am buoyed by your support".

Now, wise people in support of flipping off our current POTUS as often as possible are stepping up to raise money for Briskman's post-employment existence. She said that after the image surfaced her bosses informed her she had breached the company's social media policy because she made the photo her profile picture. The 50-year old mother of two says she'd do what she did again.

"Basically, you can not have "lewd" or "obscene" things in your social media". "I have connected with Juli and she has been officially setup as the beneficiary on this GoFundMe campaign", Rob Mello, who started the fundraiser last week, said.

She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power".

"I was thinking about all this, tooling along, when I see the black cars come and I remember, oh yeah, he was back on the golf course", she said. Her employer, a builder that works on government contracts, noticed the photo and let her go.

"I think we have a big problem in this country", she said to the audience's applause.
