As Twitchy reported, a bicyclist recently photographed flipping off President Trump’s motorcade as it passed her became a viral sensation online, but she also lost her job with a government contractor that wasn’t amused by all the attention her photo received.
Plenty of commenters were certain that Juli Briskman, 50, would land on her feet, and that seems to be the case. After being interviewed by HuffPost’s Jennifer Bendery earlier this week, Briskman landed in a chair opposite Megyn Kelly on “Megyn Kelly TODAY.”

Those 15 minutes are ticking by quickly.
Glorifying an imbecile. Apt for Megyn Kelly and her continued decent into irrelevance

Shame on you ladies. Not funny at all. https://t.co/hKjwwpZFiO

Wow, really? Disrespecting POTUS is funny news? Office should always be respected. If she had done this to Obama, Megyn wouldn't laugh. https://t.co/hY5XyXMvZn

Why is an ornery curmudgeon who uses vulgar expression getting a spotlight? https://t.co/lmns2Bo8SO

We don’t know. Ask the people at TIME who thought it was news that a woman broke off a date with a man after she learned he voted for Trump.
We should all respect the office of presidency, even if we hate the president himself.
Seeing Megyn Kelly descent from a respected journalist to Jerry Springer level is so sad. https://t.co/ZzOLpu0SU2

Hard hitting journalism is what you'd expect from Megyn, whose career, btw, has taken a nose-dive since crossing Trump. ?Flip away, J-Brisk! https://t.co/kKMqgheEX7

David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon has a crazy theory:
I have a crazy theory, and hear me out.
If a white, middle-aged mom had flipped off President Obama's motorcade, I don't think she'd get gushing interviews on MSNBC and @MegynTODAY.
I think we'd have a national conversation about decorum and respect for the presidency.

Remember when a rodeo clown was fired and forced into sensitivity training for wearing an Obama mask? https://t.co/pqyeZV0giY
