A woman whose decision to flip off President Trump's motorcade resulted in a pink slip now says her old employer used a double standard to make it happen. Our institutions would rather we fall in line like so many mindless peons than show any sense of self-worth or moral courage, and after a photo of Briskman telling that turd in the Oval Office to sit on it and spin went viral, the 50-year-old mother of two was sacked from her job.
Briskman has contacted the American Civil Liberties Union about the case. Unfortunately, Briskman suffered the slings and arrows of viral fame when her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, caught wind of what was going on. "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'" Akima apparently believed the photo could reflect badly upon their business.
Briskman says she had no idea a White House pool photographer snapped the image of her until it began circulating on social media. "But they told me I violated the code of conduct policy". According to Bethesda lawyer Bradley Shear, her honesty is what cost her her employment.
"You're a f-- Libtard asshole", the director injected, using his profile that clearly identifies himself as an employee of the firm.
This mother of two children has tried to argue that she was not at his place of work at the time of the" incident " and that she did not mention her employer on its accounts, but the company was adamant. She also said a male colleague posted lewd comments on their Facebook page, but they weren't fired.

Juli Briskman was off-duty when she was riding a bicycle past the president's motorcade, and gave him the one-finger salute. "How can it be less "obscene" than my finger to the president?"
"Just a single third of Puerto Rico has control".
Briskman added "I flipped off the motorcade a number of times".
HuffPost offered up the photo in question, along with more detail on Briskman's potential claim against Akima. "I'm considering, he's at the damn green once more", she proceeded.
A day later, concerns bubbled up, upsetting the bigwigs at the company so much they fired her.
Briskman says she'll now be looking for a job with a left-leaning advocacy group like PETA or Planned Parenthood.
In Briskman's case - assuming we have the full set of facts, which is always a unsafe assumption - she would have some grounds to pursue a wrongful termination suit.
