While riding her bike, the 50-year-old marketing executive found herself the anonymous subject of both praise and condemnation after she clearly and definitively shot her middle finger to Trump's passing motorcade on a road in Sterling, Virginia.

While the ample funds raised through the GoFundMe may tide Briskman over for a while, she'll eventually need a job, and pornography and social media company XHamster hopes she'll end up with them.

While it appears she remains without employment following her firing, a GoFundMe campaign named "Thank You Juli Briskman" has raised over $60,000 (out of a goal of $100,000) in just seven days.

The description for the campaign reads: "Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all". She was sacked for repeatedly and very publicly flipping off the wispy-haired concentration of pure dickheadship that is the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump (you might have heard of him). She wasn't too upset about it, though, telling the Huffington Post she felt she did good work: "In some ways, I'm doing better than ever, I'm angry about where our country is right now". I got fired from one because I was really, really bad at selling mobile phone plans to people, which is not really something to be super proud of. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. "Basically, you can not have "lewd" or 'obscene" things in your social media.

When asked by the Washington Post whether she regrets her actions, she replied like the American hero she is: "I'd do it again". "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene'". "I flipped off the motorcade a number of times".

Ms Briskman said the firm was angered she had used the image as her profile picture on Facebook and Twitter, informing her it went against social media policy and could therefore damage the company's reputation as a government contractor.
