GoFundMe Raises Money for Cyclist Who Flipped Off Trump Motorcade

The woman who was shown in a viral photo flipping off President Trump's motorcade as it passed her while she cycled may have gotten fired, but thanks to a GoFundMe campaign, she won't be hurting for money for a while. The crowdfunding campaign calls cyclist Juli Briskman "an inspiration to us all" and asks for donations after she was fired "for exercising her First Amendment rights" (she posted the photo on social media, Mashable reports). It has so far raised more than $63,500 of its $100,000 goal. (More GoFundMe stories.)
