Viral: Trump loves Twitter, does he love Cbus native’s bird?

One middle finger directed at one specific person at just the right time in just the right place has changed the life of one central Ohio native.

While Juli Briskman has relocated to Virginia since graduating from Worthington High School and Ohio State University, The Dispatch reports that she learned her values right here in Columbus—so are we technically responsible for the photo of her that has gone viral?

As she was riding her bike down a tree-lined road in Virginia, Juli Briskman couldn’t pass up the opportunity to silently communicate her feelings towards President Trump’s passing motorcade.

She had no idea photographers and reporters were not far behind with their cameras in tow.

Briskman told The Dispatch it snowballed from there. She even lost her job because of the little bird she flipped but a GoFundMe in her honor was started and has already raised nearly $20,000 since Wednesday morning.

Ya lose some, ya win some.
