Washington (CNN)The woman who gave President Donald Trump's motorcade the finger in late October is speaking out after she said she was fired for the incident that went viral.
 
Juli Briskman, a former member of the marketing team at Akima LLC, was riding her bike as the presidential motorcade passed by, transporting Trump from his golf course back to the White House.
"My finger said what I was feeling," Briskman said. "I'm angry and I'm frustrated."
 
She flipped off the motorcade twice, and after the moment went viral, she told her employer.
"I thought that it would probably get back to my company eventually," Briskman said in an interview with CNN's Jeanne Moos.
 
She said she was told she had violated the company's social media policy, and said the company in turn fired her.
"I said, 'Well, that was me,'" Briskman told Moos, recalling her conversation with her former company's HR representative.
Briskman said she had been at the company for about 6½ months before the incident, and was working in the marketing department.
She added that she's "really not" the bird-flipping type.
"Health care doesn't pass, but you try to dismantle it from the inside," Briskman said. "Five-hundred people get shot in Las Vegas; you're doing nothing about it. You know, white supremacists have this big march and hurt a bunch of people down in Charlottesville and you call them good people."

 

 

Sounds very snowflakey of the person to very her for this.

 

Is it true?

 

your thoughts?

Since she wasn't on the clock and was in no way representing her company, it's pretty obvious that the company is owned by a Trump supporter.  She shouldn't sweat it though. She was only there six months. And she got her 15 minutes of fame.

Marketing..  Yup, she gone, you don't want that kind of press.

 

Her comments after the fact are uninformed as well.

Her comments after the fact represent the feelings of the majority of this country.  All but about 34% last time I checked.

Sounds like the Government was that company's biggest customer.  She doesn't sound too bright.

 

And of course the comments on this story on other web sites is full of "her right to free speech was infringed upon!"   :doh:

Freedom of Speech (or expression) comes with a price.

She says she would do it again and once she's broke, she'll blame Trump.

She could go ask Kathy Griffin what to do next.

BBC for the most part is pretty damn good.

She has every right to flip off the president.

The company has every right to not employee her.

What's the problem?

He didn't compare the two acts. He suggested that Kathy Griffin would know what to do after being fired for expressing herself.

I think the snowflakes are the ones who cannot understand simple stuff like that and get uptight when such obvious things are merely pointed out.

She broke the rules set by her company and Virginia is an at-will employment state...

It is fine she did what she did, but there are consequences... I don't have a problem with the firing...

This I can agree with. However, she did not take the picture.

If she hadnt posted the pic to her Facebook account nobody would have known it was her and shes still have a job. Im fine with her firing. Looks like her company does a lot of public sector work. They dont want to be associated with this type.
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

You misunderstood me. In no way are the two close to each other than both women lost their jobs.

I'm saying one woman whose action caused her to lose her job should go ask another woman whose action cost her to lose her livelyhood what she should do. Kathy doubled down on retard and I bet she'd just apologize if she had it to do over again.

Play stupid games
Win stupid prizes
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver. ~Jack Handey (VIA IronToeNedney)

She made it her profile pic on Twitter and Facebook according to another article I read on it. That pretty much blew her case, imo.

This is my issue.  She had nothing to do with the picture being taken. She did not put it on the web.

 

Not a single one of us in the same situation, wouldn't have bragged about this.

#1...Wrong.  I wouldn't flip off the President of the US--even if HT won the damn thing

#2..I wouldn't brag about it on social media.  People who do are stupid.


If you are going to debate me on this bulletin board,

start with this premise..

You win.  And I don't care.
