Woman fired for flipping off Trump's Motorcade.

Love this lady.
Losing her job over it is bullshit.

Sweet.  When her wrongful termination lawsuit lands in her favor, she'll be much more comfortable financially than she was before.  Sometimes doing the wrong thing works out for people.

^ It really depends on the labor laws in Virginia.  In Indiana, employers can get rid of you for any reason that isn't explicitly protected by law (i.e. racial discrimination) and just say that it "wasn't working out".  Hopefully the have something a little less draconian on the books.

^ VA likes the whole "employment-at-will" thing, so of course, there are no apparent legal issues with her termination.
It's just bogus because it seems the company did it out of fear of pissing off Agent Orange (or his lackeys), while trying to act like it was because she violated some "no negative shit on social media" clause (which apparently another male employee directly violated, and was allowed to keep his job).

Dear United States of America,

Kind regards,

Unfortunately the entire executive branch is broke.  We've got bigger issues.
