Liberals, Media Cheer Woman on Bike Who Gave the Finger to Pres. Trump as Motorcade Passed

A woman riding a bicycle on the road from President Donald Trump’s Northern Virginia golf club in Sterling is being celebrated by media and liberals for giving the finger to Trump as his motorcade passed her by on Saturday.

A photo taken by AFP photographer Brendan Smialowski shows the woman riding alongside the motorcade with her left arm raised and middle finger held high.

This Saturday night tweet of the protester by Steve Herman of VOA News got over 10,000 retweets and over 27,000 likes in a few hours.

She persisted.

Donald Trump’s motorcade departing from the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia had an extra add-on Saturday, after the president spent the 96th day of his presidency visiting one of his own properties. That addition came in the form of a female cyclist, who had one goal in mind: to flip off the president of the United States.

Pool reporters first noticed the cyclist trailing the motorcade before she managed to snake her way next to the president’s car just outside of the Trump National Golf Club. “A female bicyclist along the motorcade route, just outside the golf course, traveling in the right lane repeatedly extended her middle left finger towards POTUS,” the pool stated…”

Newsweek’s “She persisted” cheerleading report was picked up by Yahoo News.

Liberals called the woman a hero.

POTUSs motorcade departed the Trump National Golf Club at 3.12pm, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs down sign. Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger. The motorcade had to slow and the cyclist caught up, still offering the finger, before turning off in a different direction. Motorcade is now gathering speed and heading for DC.
Pool did not see any golfing and sought names of POTUSs playing partners but no word yet.

FWIW, a poster on Twitter, Lydia@LHGraham27, claimed to be the woman giving the finger to President Trump.

One question: Why did the Secret Service allow this person to ride alongside the President’s motorcade?
