Briskman gained notoriety in 2017 when she was photographed giving the presidents motorcade the middle finger. She told HuffPost at the time that her employer, Akima LLC, fired her because of the photo.
They said, Were separating from you. Basically, you cannot have lewd or obscene things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off obscene,’ she told the news outlet at the time.
Briskmans win was met with joy by a number of people on social media.
