Campaign Raises More Than $70000 for Woman Who Flipped off Trump

Campaign Raises More Than $70000 for Woman Who Flipped off Trump

Three days later, the 50-year-old marketing executive was sacked by her company, government contractor Akima.

Now, wise people in support of flipping off our current POTUS as often as possible are stepping up to raise money for Briskman's post-employment existence. "I'm thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out".

In a note, which the campaign says is from her, however, Briskman thanks the donors saying " After I was terminated from my job on October, 31, ...

She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power".

Echoing her previous remarks to the Post, Briskman said the middle finger was the only way to send Trump the message she wanted to give him.

"Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all", reads the GoFundMe's description. "I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to play golf".

Ben Affleck is Thinking About When It's Time to Leave Batman
At the time, Affleck said he was still keen on the part, but now it sounds like he's looking for an exit. This is a stark contrast to the Doomsday reveal in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice promotion.

Briskman later told NBC's Megyn Kelly that she is speaking out about what happened because she witnessed another Akima employee simply receive a warning for posting vulgar language on Facebook. All proceeds are being donated directly to Juli. So far more than $73,000 has been raised in $5, $20, and $100 donations. "They clearly treated me differently, it was not equal application of their social media policy".

Briskman hasn't yet announced a new job, but - rather predictably - she does have at least one offer.

Addressing the sacking process itself, the marketing executive said: "They said, 'We're separating from you'".

"I think we have a big problem in this country", she said to the audience's applause. "Basically, you can not have "lewd" or 'obscene" things in your social media.

Neither Briskman nor Mello immediately returned requests for comment on the online fundraiser.
