Woman who flipped off Trump motorcade wins seat on Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in Virginia.
Juli Briskman, a marketing executive from Virginia, made national news in October 2017 when a photo of her flipping off President Trump’s motorcade went viral.
Speaking to Jeanne Moos in 2017, Briskman contended she’s “really not” the bird-flipping type, but still made her feelings toward Trump clear.
“Health care doesn’t pass, but you try to dismantle it from the inside,” she said. “Five hundred people get shot in Las Vegas; you’re doing nothing about it. You know, white supremacists have this big march and hurt a bunch of people down in Charlottesville and you call them good people.“
“My finger said what I was feeling,” Briskman said at the time. “I’m angry and I’m frustrated.“
Unfortunately, the attention didn’t go down too well with her employers and she was forced to resign
from her job.
But in September 2018, Briskman announced her bid for local office.
And on Tuesday night she won her race to become supervisor for the Algonkian District in Loudoun County, Virginia!
