It’s nice to see karma come back and bite someone in the ass.
But I don’t necessarily like to call it karma, I like to call it the “Trump Boomerang Effect”. That’s what I’ve come to call the phenomenon that has happened over and over since 2015.
Here’s how it goes: someone attacks Trump. Within a very short time period, that person suffers the same consequences and ends up going down for it, while Teflon Don remains untouched.
We’ve seen hundreds of examples at this point.
Remember Lindsey Graham? In the primaries, Lindsey thought he’d put on his big boy pants and attack Donald Trump. That proved to be a very poor idea. Trump gave out Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number, said he could barely get to 1% in the polls, and within a few days Graham had all but hit 0% in the polls. Done and out.
The same fate befell Low Energy Jeb, Lyin’ Ted Cruz, dozens of actors, the NFL and dozens of other politicians.
And now we have another one to add to the list. The lady who flipped off Trump’s motorcade.
Do you remember when this happened?
Stay classy lady!
Trashy Cyclist Now Fired
And now she's been fired from her job for violating the company's "social media standards."
The woman who gave President Donald Trump's motorcade the finger in late October is speaking out after she said she was fired for the incident that went viral.
Juli Briskman, a former member of the marketing team at Akima LLC, was riding her bike as the presidential motorcade passed by, transporting Trump from his golf course back to the White House.
"My finger said what I was feeling," Briskman said. "I'm angry and I'm frustrated."
She flipped off the motorcade twice, and after the moment went viral, she told her employer.
"I thought that it would probably get back to my company eventually," Briskman said in an interview with CNN's Jeanne Moos.
She said she was told she had violated the company's social media policy, and said the company in turn fired her.
"I said, 'Well, that was me,'" Briskman told Moos, recalling her conversation with her former company's HR representative. Akima LLC did not respond to multiple messages seeking comment.
Long live Trump!
Attack him at your own peril.
