She gave President Trump’s motorcade the finger — and now supporters are raising tens of thousands of dollars for her.

A GoFundMe campaign to support Virginia resident Juli Briskman — who flipped off the commander-in-chief’s motorcade while biking — had raised more than $73,000 as of Tuesday.

The campaign was started last week by a man named Rob Mello on behalf of Briskman after news broke that she had been fired from her job over the incident.

“Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all,” the GoFundMe page says. “This week we learned that she was fired from her employer for exercising her first amendment rights. You can show your support by donating here.”

Briskman was riding her bike past the presidential caravan Oct. 28 in Sterling, Va., when she was photographed by a White House photographer giving the one-finger salute. The photo quickly went viral.

After the photo gained internet fame, Briskman decided to alert her employer, Akima LLC, a government contractor, that she was the woman in the photograph.

Briskman, a 50-year-old mother of two, was fired the next day.

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,’” Briskman told the Huffington Post. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”

Briskman, a Democrat, worked in marketing and communications for the company for about six months.

She previously said that when Trump’s motorcade passed her, it was her initial reaction to flip the bird.

“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” she said.

Briskman, in a message on the GoFundMe page, wrote: “Through your generous donations, heavy burdens have been lifted. Thank you!”

The online fundraiser has a goal of $100,000.
