I’m for free speech and all that, but some people among us need to learn good manners. As they say in the army: “Respect the rank, even if you can’t respect the officer.”
Julie Briskman the woman who posted a photo on social media of herself giving the middle finger to President Donald Trump’s motorcade on Sunday, Oct.29 has been fired from her jobs.
According to the pool reporter on duty that day, “POTUS’s motorcade departed the Trump National Golf Club at 3.12pm, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs-down sign. Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger.”
“The motorcade had to slow and the cyclist caught up, still offering the finger, before turning off in a different direction. The motorcade is now gathering speed and heading for DC.”

Briskman had been working at Akima LLC, a construction company that often gets government contracts, for just over six months. But, as the photo went viral with users calling her a “heroine,” Briskman’s bosses called her into a meeting Tuesday and gave her the bad news. Apparently, Akima LLC was concerned that the photo might hurt their ability to win government contracts so they fired her.
Describing the firing in an interview, Briskman said: “They said, ‘We’re separating from you. Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things on your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”
Still, Briskman complained of an unfair standard: Akima did not fire a male coworker who, she said, called someone a “fucking Libtard asshole” on his Facebook page. He’d only received a warning after he deleted the post.
“How is that any less ‘obscene’ than me flipping off the president?” Briskman said. “How is that fair?”
“In some ways, I’m doing better than ever,” Briskman said. “I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something.”
“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” Briskman said. “I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”
Do these morons ever consider that a lot of people felt the same way during the 8 disastrous years under Obama? Yet, none of us showed this kind of disrespect toward him.
Still, these people who denounce “hate speech” and “divisiveness”… how do they NOT consider giving somebody the finger, twice, to be hateful? Do you do it out of love?
I really beginning to believe that Liberalism is an emotional disorder.
