The woman who gave the middle finger to President Trump's motorcade has raised more than $73,000 in a GoFundMe campaign.
From The NY Post:
She gave President Trump’s motorcade the finger — and now supporters are raising tens of thousands of dollars for her.
A GoFundMe campaign to support Virginia resident Juli Briskman — who flipped off the commander-in-chief’s motorcade while biking — had raised more than $73,000 as of Tuesday.
The campaign was started last week by a man named Rob Mello on behalf of Briskman after news broke that she had been fired from her job over the incident.
“Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all,” the GoFundMe page says. “This week we learned that she was fired from her employer for exercising her first amendment rights. You can show your support by donating here.”
Briskman was riding her bike past the presidential caravan Oct. 28 in Sterling, Va., when she was photographed by a White House photographer giving the one-finger salute. The photo quickly went viral.
After the photo gained internet fame, Briskman decided to alert her employer, Akima LLC, a government contractor, that she was the woman in the photograph.
Briskman, a 50-year-old mother of two, was fired the next day.
