NBC Treats Woman Like a Hero for Flipping Off Trump
On Thursday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly welcomed Julie Briskman on her morning show, who gained 15 minutes of fame by giving President Trump’s motorcade the middle finger while out for a bike ride in northern Virginia. The studio audience cheered and applauded as Briskman told Kelly “it felt great” to make the obscene gesture to the commander-in-chief…
MEGYN KELLY: So she went for a bike ride near her Virginia home and wound up becoming a viral sensation. Her picture splashed across Twitter, Facebook, national and international newspapers and websites. Why? Because Julie Briskman decided, on a whim, to give the bird to President Trump’s passing motorcade.
[CHEERS & APPLAUSE]
Briskman – Briskman was head of social media for Akima LLC, but she says she was forced to resign for what she did on her private time. Joining me now to talk about it, Julie Briskman. Julie, thank you for being here.
JULIE BRISKMAN: Thank you so much for having me.
KELLY: So you live in Sterling, Virginia.
BRISKMAN: I do.
KELLY: Which is beautiful country. And there goes President Trump’s motorcade. And what inspired you in the moment to communicate with him in that manner?
BRISKMAN: Well, all my frustration about this administration just weld up inside of me, and I started thinking about all the things that I think are going wrong right now in our country. And that was the only way I had to give him the message that I wanted to give him.
