Today's inauguration of Joe Biden as US President marks the end of Trump's turbulent tenure.
And while he didn't coin the phrase 'fake news', President Trump used it to berate his opponents in the media and politics enough for it to become synonymous with him.
But the concept of fake news will not be relocating to Mar-a-Lago. Instead it is embodied in Secretary of State Brandon Lewis's denial of an Irish Sea border and the upheaval it has brought.
Grocery companies like Tesco, Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer have all acknowledged - privately if not publicly - arrangements have forced them to rethink their supply chains.
That process, along with delays in GB ports as many companies there simply were not prepared for the change after absorbing the "no Irish Sea border" rhetoric, led to gaps on our supermarket shelves in the first few weeks of the year.
Many other companies shipping here from GB have said they are also encountering problems and actively cite Brexit as a reason why they have put deliveries on hold. But Mr Lewis told Radio 4's Today programme yesterday that the gaps on shelves were not down to Brexit - even though M&S has said it has temporarily withdrawn 380 product lines here as it comes to terms with the change.
Mr Lewis said the gaps on shelves were "something we've seen across other parts of the UK as well, nothing to do with leaving the EU, nothing to do with the Northern Irish protocol but actually to do with some of the challenges we saw with Covid at the Port of Dover just before Christmas and the impact that had on supply lines coming through. I have to say supermarket supply lines at the moment are in good fettle."
That the NI Protocol exists at all is due at least in part to the lack of foresight of the DUP in championing the simplistic fairytale of Brexit and its "take back control" mantra. Ironically it is DUP Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots who is now comparing Brandon Lewis to a fairytale figure who couldn't face up to the truth.
He called Mr Lewis as "the emperor with no clothes - but instead of a small boy pointing out he's naked, the whole crowd is pointing it out". If Mr Poots' vision of Brexit was a fairytale, its first month is nothing short of a pantomime.
