A fundraising campaign set up with the goal of supporting a woman who was sacked from her job after flipping off President Donald Trump's motorcade had raised more than $86,000 by Tuesday morning.

Still without a job however, a GoFundMe campaign was created on November 6 to assist the able-fingered activist with a goal of $100,000.

The two largest donors are an anonymous donor and Rosie O'Donnell, who gave $1,500 and $1,000 respectively.

Despite losing her job, Briskman said that she did not regret the incident, adding that she would do it again, and since then she had made the photo her profile on social media.

Days after her exit from her firm, government contractor Akima LCC, a crowdfunding page was set up to show support for the single mom. All proceeds are being donated directly to Juli.

At the time, the 50-year-old woman said she was escorted from her building and told by her bosses that they wanted her to be professional. "As the campaign beneficiary, she will be able to post updates and comments, so stay tuned!" "For now, I can just say thank you and promise to be a good steward of these funds".

"He was passing by and my blood just started to boil", she told Huffington Post.

"I don't think it was right", she said. As bird-flipping news aficionados will recall, a thrilling photo of Briskman presenting Trump's convoy of idiocy with a well-timed middle finger went as viral as humanly possible last month.

Till this day, the image remains her cover photo on her Facebook page.

Briskman may not be an inspiration to those in favor of Trump, but to the anti-Trump contingent, her act serves as a simple and iconic indictment of the president's tenure thus far.
