Cyclist Fired For Flipping The Bird To Donald Trump Wins Election In Virginia

Juli Briskman, the woman who got fired for flipping off President Donald Trump’s motorcade, won a local election Tuesday in Virginia.

Briskman won her election to the Loudoun County board of supervisors in Virginia as part of the blue wave that took over both of the state’s legislative bodies and defended the governorship Tuesday night, according to the Washington Post. Briskman first broke into national news in October 2017 for flipping off Trump’s motorcade on a bike as it drove past her on its way back from a golf outing. Briskman ousted a Republican to win the seat.

Briskman initially stayed silent after the photo went viral on social media, but eventually admitted to her company that she was the person in the photo. The company, government contracting firm Akima, fired her soon afterward, according to the Post.

“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” Briskman told The Huffington Post at the time. “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 damn golf course again.”

The Trump-owned golf course the president was returning from now lies in her district.

“Isn’t that sweet justice?” she told WaPo.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

    She should have been arrested first then fired . I can’t believe good ole Virginia has turned communist liberal . After you’ve seen what the do nothing Democrat’s haven’t done or fixed anything and you go out and vote for them , you must either be brainwashed or stupid . I can’t believe Virginia is a liberal state . A real shame smh
