When Donald Trump’s motorcade passed her on the back roads of Virginia last week, cyclist Juli Briskman did what many American’s would do…she gave the motorcade and the President the finger!
A photo of the incident, taken by a press photographer riding in the caravan of black SUVs, went viral the next day, making Ms. Briskman an overnight Internet sensation. But unfortunately, it also cost the 50-year-old marketing executive her job at Akima LLC, a firm with U.S. government contracts.
But, wait, there’s good news! A week after giving the president the finger and finding herself out of a job. Ms. Briskman has now received an incredible 453,678 job offers (and counting) from employers large and small, from every state in the nation.
“She’s my ‘she-ro,’” said Lucy Clementori, who owns a chain of fitness centers throughout the Southwest and promised to hire Ms. Briskman, sight unseen. “She can take over our spin classes and teach everyone that great presidential salute!”
Norm LaForge, who started a multi-million dollar company erecting cell towers in the Midwest, wants Juli Briskman to start yesterday. “It took guts to do what she did, giving the finger to The Great White Dope. That kind of chutzpah makes a great salesperson. She’s hired.”
“I don’t have any openings, but I’ll find a place for her anyway,” said Darlene Ranalin, founder of a public relations firm in Boston. “I guess President Trump was right after all, he really is creating new jobs.”
It is not known if Ms. Briskman is going to accept any of the 453,678 job offers that came her way, seemingly as a reward for her political resistance, but her story and the reaction of so many Americans shows with clarity the great unhappiness that exists with the president in employees and employers in this great nation.
