A woman who was fired after flipping off President Trump's motorcade is suing her former employer.
Juli Briskman was riding her bicycle when he raised her finger towards Trump's motorcade as the President left his golf course in Sterling, VA. She was fired by Akima LLC, a government contractor, after a photo of Briskman's defiant gesture went viral.
Briskman says her company violated state employment law by forcing her to resign, and also that she was paid only two weeks of severance pay instead of the four weeks she was promised. Briskman says "Americans should not be forced to choose between their principles and their paychecks".
