Woman fired for giving Trump the finger gets $70K in donations, job offer from porn company

Supporters of a Virginia woman who lost her job after she flipped off President Trump's motorcade have raised over $70,000 in donations, and she's the recipient of an unlikely job offer from a pornography company. 

A GoFundMe account set up on behalf of Juli Briskman has raked in over $70,000 in donations since it was activated a week ago. Briskman, 50, was let go by Akima LLC, after the company deemed she violated their social media policy by using a now-viral photo of her flipping off the president as her profile picture on Facebook and Twitter. 

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. 

The company tweeted at Briskman, offering her a position on their team last week. 

"@JulieBriskman, our marketing & social media team would gladly welcome a new member! Never give up and always stay true to your principles," XHamster tweeted on Nov. 10. 

Briskman told the HuffPost shortly after the incident that when she saw the president's motorcade as he left a golf course in Sterling, Va., that her "blood just started to boil." 

"I’m thinking DACA recipients are getting kicked out," Briskman told HuffPost. "He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I'm thinking, he's at the damn golf course again."
