After claiming decisive victories in both the war on terror and a minor skirmish with an ant that tried to invade his lunch box, Donald Trump has declared the war on fake news is over.

The leader of the free world could hardly contain his excitement at notching up his “first term war winning hat trick”, telling supporters at a rally in Denver:

“I win, I’m the best at war, it’s true.

ISIS? Yeah smashed them and their goats, won’t be seeing those guys putting out videos any time soon.

“That ant? Crushed, and let me tell you, I got to eat the sandwich that day.

“And fake news, oh yes I’m looking at you BBCNNBC, you’re done too.

“No! More! Fake! News! I killed it. It’s dead. It’s deader than that Monty’s python.

“If you’re reading this on some pissant little blog like The Post Truth Post, so sad, you’ll know it’s real, because there is no fake news anymore, because I won already.

“Those guys can’t even make stuff up about me anymore because I beat fake news so hard it gave up and went home to its mommy.” 

The President continued to rant in a similar vein for a couple of hours until a chant of “lock her up” drowned him out.

With the war on fake news so decisively won, The Post Truth Post would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for reading.

We are proud to announce that this is the first completely factual and accurate story we have published as we transition to being proper journalists.

Fashion retailers launch new range of sizes for leggings

Leggings Fit Guide

High Street fashion retailers are set to launch a new range of sizes for leggings and other lower-body-hugging apparel.

Under the new scheme, which is designed to enable women to more easily select the correct garment fit, the old small, medium and large scale will be replaced. 

Jane Fishlove-Smyth, of the Lycra Accessories and Brands International Association (LABIA), says the new range of sizes are closely aligned to the way that modern consumers pick leggings or yoga pants when in store.

Research shows that, unlike other garments, the majority of consumers ignore the size information and will simply squeeze into whichever pair of leggings takes their fancy.

“Of course, the inherent elasticity of a Lycra based product makes this possible,” Ms Fishlove-Smyth told us, while noting that "there are limits" to even the most elastic of materials.

“While a small pair of leggings can often stretch to accommodate buttocks that would be more naturally suited to a medium or even large pair, they tend not to do so well around the front,” she said.

“Our new sizing system aims to address this by providing clear information to the consumer about the expected ‘front fit’ of the garment.”

The new front fit information labels are due to hit high streets later this year and will initially classify leggings in three sizes — Antelope, Camel or Moose fit.
