A Virginia woman whose photo went viral last week after she flipped of President Donald Trump’s motorcade lost her job and now hopes to work for the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood.
Juli Briskman, a 50-year-old mother of two, was riding her bike last week in Sterling, Virginia when the president’s motorcade passed her, according to the Evening Standard.
“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” she 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 d— golf course again.
“I flipped off the motorcade a number of times,” Briskman said.
A White House photographer took a photo of Briskman that later circulated widely across the internet; Briskman proudly posted it on her Facebook and Twitter pages, according to the report.
Days later, Briskman’s employer, Akiva LLC, a government contractor, fired her, saying she violated the company’s social media policy, the Huffington Post reports.
“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,‘” Briskman told the Huffington Post. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”
Briskman said she does not regret the lewd gesture. She said she hopes to find a job soon at PETA or Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America.
“I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something,” Briskman said.

Expressing a desire to work for the abortion industry is not something many people do. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S., performing about 320,000 abortions a year. It currently receives about half a billion taxpayer dollars every year, despite numerous scandals involving potentially illegal sales of aborted babies’ body parts, Medicaid fraud and failures to report sexual abuse of minors.
The Trump administration has been working to defund the abortion business. In January, the president reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits Planned Parenthood and other groups from using tax dollars to promote or perform abortions overseas. Over the summer, it also cut several million dollars in taxpayer-funded sex education grants to the Planned Parenthood abortion business. In addition, the administration cut several million dollars in taxpayer-funded grants to the abortion chain for helping people sign up for Obamacare.
In October, the Trump administration signaled its commitment to protecting unborn babies in a proposed Department of Health and Human Services strategic plan. The proposed plan states that HHS will serve Americans at “every stage of life, beginning at conception,” and makes several other references to human life in the womb.
Trump also has angered liberals by appointing a number of pro-life leaders to his administration, including Vice President Mike Pence, and Teresa Manning and Charmaine Yoest, both of whom previously worked for prominent pro-life groups.
