Woman Who Famously Flipped Off Trump's Motorcade Is Running For Local Office ❤

That's Juli Briskman of Sterling, Virginia, whose cycling route happened to coincide with the Presidential Motorcade. She took the opportunity to communicate her displeasure at its occupant. The viral photo cost her her job - though she successfully sued her employers over the firing - but shot her into the public sphere, including appearances on Megyn Kelly and Stephen Colbert. Well, nearly a year later, Juli is stepping up from being an iconic protester to a political candidate, launching a campaign for Board of Supervisors in Loudoun County, Virginia.
