It pays to flip off Trump's motorcade

The image went viral and Briskman was later fired after bringing the incident to the attention of her employer, Akima LLC, an engineering company.

Over 3,000 donations, ranging from $5 to $250 have rolled in over the past week.

Now, wise people in support of flipping off our current POTUS as often as possible are stepping up to raise money for Briskman's post-employment existence.

Juli Briskman grabbed global headlines after a White House photographer snapped her cycling past President Trump's convoy of cars as it departed the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia to bestow him with a one-finger salute.

"Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all", the GoFundMe page says.

The photo of Briskman giving the finger only showed her from the back, unidentifiable, with the left arm out and middle finger up.

They have been working for the past four years to re-analyze archeological sites that were found decades ago. The team of researchers hailed from the United States, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, Israel, and Georgia .

At the time, the 50-year-old said she was escorted from the building and told by her bosses that they wanted her to be professional.

She insisted that she does not regret her decision and said she was pleased to be a symbol of resistance towards the president, adding: "In some ways, I'm doing better than ever".

"He was passing by and my blood just started to boil", she told Huffington Post. She was sacked shortly thereafter, reportedly because she posted the photo on her social media accounts, which qualified as "obscene" content and supposedly violated her company's employee conduct guidelines.

"Through your very generous donations, many of those heavy burdens have been lifted".

The US president was making his 96th visit to one of his properties when Briskman saw red and flipped him the finger.

The online fundraiser has a goal of $100,000.
