Virginia's famous "middle-finger-cyclist" just got fired

 article about Virginias famous middle-finger-cyclist just got fired
On October 28, Juli Briskman, a Virginia cyclist, was photographed showing her middle finger at Trump's motorcade as it drove past her. Now she's been fired by her company, Akima L.L.C.

She raised her middle finger after she had seen Trump's motorcade going past her. She said that it was a totally spontaneous gesture, something most of us could imagine doing when seeing Trump.

"I just got angry," she explained. Angry about what Trump's administration is doing - health insurance, deportations, etc. "I lifted my arm and started flipping him off. I started thinking, You're golfing again when there is so much going on right now," she continued. At the time of the incident, Trump's motorcade was just leaving the Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Va.

On October 30, Briskman, still unidentified by the journalists at that time, went to his employers HR office and asked "Have you heard about the bike woman? You're going to have to look that up. It's me."

Next day she was told that "We have chosen to separate from you," because it could hurt their business, considering their work is related to government contracts.

Well, she got fired. But from positive side, she will most likely have no problems securing a next, better job.
