“The president of the United States is used to being saluted, but a cyclist in Virginia put her own particular slant on the tradition on Saturday when she was overtaken by Donald Trumps motorcade.
The woman on her bike was photographed raising her middle finger when Trump`s cavalcade passed her on its way out from the Trump National Golf Club on the banks of the Potomac river, on the outskirts of Washington DC. She then repeated the gesture when she caught up with the motorcade.
The White House pool report noted drily: POTUS`s 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.”
There are hundreds of statues of Paul Revere on his magnificent steed, immortalizing his midnight run warning the patriots that the British were coming.
I`m an optimist and I hope that one day there will be hundreds of statues of this woman on her bicycle with her middle finger extended warning patriots that our president is a national disgrace.
This heroic woman has yet to be identified, and maybe it`s better if she isn`t, because she represents all of us who are horrified and disgusted by the short-fingered vulgarian.
This patriot on her mighty bicycle saluted Trump as his cavalcade passed her on its way out from the Trump National Golf Club. Trump spends almost every weekend at one of his golf resorts, patriots should greet him whenever he enters or leaves one of his resorts with extended middle fingers.
Flipping Trump the bird is the perfect way of demonstrating our contempt, it`s speaking in a language that he will understand, and it`s a reminder that everybody, even children, have longer fingers.
