Briskman was riding her bike past the presidential caravan October 28 in Sterling, Va., when she was photographed by a White House photographer giving the one-finger salute.
On the website, it says Briskman was "fired from her employer for exercising her first amendment rights".
She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power". The photo soon went viral with many calling it utterly disrespectful, while some viewed it as a an accurate depiction for the contempt many Americans have for the Commander-In-Chief. Not only did her post reach her social media followers, but it reached the 2 billion person pool on the other side of the glass screen.
Briskman says she has no regrets and that she’d do it again
When asked by the Washington Post whether she regrets her actions, she replied like the American hero she is: "I'd do it again". "I'm thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out".
She said she drew attention to the fact her social media pages make no mention her employer and that the incident took place during her own time. Those funds will be useful, as Briskman paid a steep price for her impromptu protest.
"Basically, you can not have "lewd" or "obscene" things on your social media".
"Through your generous donations, heavy burdens have been lifted".
"I never imagined that my "one-finger salute" to the Presidential motorcade and its occupant would cost me my job", Briskman wrote in a note on the fundraising website's page.
