Strangers Are Throwing Money at Woman Who Gave Trump the Finger

A fundraising campaign set up with the goal of supporting a woman who was sacked from her job after flipping off President Donald Trump's motorcade had raised more than $86,000 by Tuesday morning.

Briskman lost her government contractor job last week after a photo of her giving Trump's motorcade the finger in northern Virginia, on October 28, made worldwide news.

One of the pages was made by Rob Mello where people donated money ranging from $5 to $25 to help Briskman, who lost her job as a marketing and communications specialist for Virginia-based federal contractor, Akima, as a effect for her action.

The former Georgia congressman resigned September 29 over a scandal involving his use of private aircraft for government business. Azar admirers say his industry experience should be considered an asset, not a liability.

While the ample funds raised through the GoFundMe may tide Briskman over for a while, she'll eventually need a job, and pornography and social media company XHamster hopes she'll end up with them.

Juli Briskman has a GoFundMe account set up that has reached $98,227 - just shy of the goal of $100,000. The money raised will be given to the jobless single mom in order to help get her life back on track.

She insisted that she does not regret her decision and said she was pleased to be a symbol of resistance towards the president, adding: "In some ways, I'm doing better than ever". The photo quickly went viral.

"I'm thinking DACA recipients are getting kicked out", Briskman told HuffPost. There were several people who criticised her for flipping off the President but a majority of the reactions applauded her for her act.

"I am not sure what the future holds, but I am buoyed by your support", Briskman wrote. "Basically, you can not have "lewd" or 'obscene" things in your social media. 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.
