Woman Who Flipped Off Trump Motorcade Loses Her Job

The woman, identified by The Washington Post as 50-year-old Juli Briskman, told Huffington Post she chose to tell her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, what had happened as the photo was circulating online.

Ironically, one of Briskman's responsibilities at Akima was to monitor the company's social media presence.

Briskman told the Huff Post that she got canned because her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, found her actions "lewd" and "obscene".

In Briskman's case - assuming we have the full set of facts, which is always a risky assumption - she would have some grounds to pursue a wrongful termination suit.

"Covered Social Media Activity that contains discriminatory, obscene malicious or threatening content, is knowingly false, create [sic] a hostile work environment, or similar inappropriate or unlawful conduct will not be tolerated and will be subject to discipline up to an [sic] including termination of employment". Soon, Briskman, who had been working as a marketing specialist for a Virginia-based federal contractor, got fired from the job.

Briskman told HuffPost her "blood just started to boil" when she saw Trump's motorcade.

"I said 'Yeah, that's me".

Unfortunately for Spurs, things did not go according to plan, with a late Anthony Martial goal condemning them to defeat. It's a great stage to play football. "As for me, I played in the old Wembley and that was a great feeling".

According to Briskman, this unidentified colleague had "Akima LLC" as his cover photo on the social media platform.

Knowing that people might connect her to Akima, Briskman gave her bosses a heads-up that she was the woman in the photo. "I'm angry about where our country is right now".

Briskman told The Washington Post that she was sacked for violating the company's code of conduct policy, specifically the section covering actions on social media.

But Briskman who made her own little public stance, unattached from the company?

Just because she never mentions where she works online doesn't mean her tweets and posts don't poorly reflect on her company.

When asked if she regrets what she did, Briskman said she would do it all over again. "I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something", said Briskman. But apparently the good ol' social media policy didn't apply to this guy.

Briskman said she was then promptly fired on Tuesday from the government contracting firm and escorted out of the building for violating the "code of conduct policy", according to the Huffington Post.
