Not All Heroes Wear Capes: There is GoFundMe Campaign for the Cyclist Who Flipped Off Trump’s Motorcade

Paying it forward

Last month, a photo of a woman cycling next to Trump’s motorcade went viral. As Trump was leaving his golf course in Virginia, Juli Briskman was cycling on a main road. When the motorcade passed, Briskman did what we all wish we could, and flipped off the entire motorcade.

Apparently, the act got her fired, which is insane. By alerting HR at her job, since the picture was everywhere, Briskman was fired for posting it on social media. The photo contained “obscene” subject matter and went against company guidelines.

A GoFundMe campaign has been started with a goal of $100,000. Currently, the amount is more than half, with more than $58,000 in donations.

“Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all,” reads the GoFundMe’s description. “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 does not regret what she did and told The Washington Post, “I’d do it again.”
