Juli Briskman, the woman who was fired from her job after a White House photographer snapped a picture of her flipping off Donald Trump‘s motorcade, isn’t sorry about the picture at all.
On Thursday, Briskman spoke with Megyn Kelly on Megyn Kelly Today and said that flipping off the motorcade “felt great.”
“All my frustration about this administration just welled up inside me and I started thinking about the things that I think are going wrong right now in the country,” she said. “That was the only way I had to give him the message I wanted to give him.”
“It felt great,” she added with a laugh. “It was like I got to tell him how I really feel.”
Briskman used to be employed by Akima LLC, which fired her for violating their social media policy. However, Briskman noted that a male employee who had called someone a “f*****g libtard a**hole” on social media hadn’t been fired but had been given the chance to “clean up” his page.
“I really wasn’t gonna talk about this until I remembered the fellow that I actually flagged to the company that he had written very obscene things in someone else’s conversation on Facebook,” she continued. “He did not get fired. He was allowed to clean up his Facebook page.”
“They clearly treated me differently. It was not equal application of their social media policy.”
However, Briskman is moving on now and hopes to find a job at an advocacy group like Planned Parenthood, doing something she believes in.
