How great is this?
Juli Briskman thought it was a great idea to give the middle finger to the Trump motorcade.

Now she’s been FIRED.
The bicyclist’s name is Juli Briskman and her employer ― government contractor Akima LLC ― wasn’t so happy about the photo. In fact, Akima fired her over it.
In an interview on Saturday with HuffPost, Briskman, a 50-year-old mother of two, said she was stunned that someone had taken a picture of her giving Trump the middle finger.
As the image circulated online, Briskman went to work last Monday and told Akima’s HR department about what was happening. On Tuesday, the bosses called her into a meeting and said she had violated the company’s social media policy by using the photo as her profile picture on Twitter and Facebook.
“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,‘” said Briskman. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”
