Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick: ‘Nobody did more to defund the police than Donald Trump’

There's spin, there's shading the truth and then there are brazen lies that aren't even remotely grounded in reality. Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at our post-truth Republican Party. 
 
Then we're joined by Svante Myrick, the mayor of Ithaca, New York,  who is leading one of the most ambitious efforts in the country--one that might prove to be a model for other communities. 
 
And then Wall Street Journal reporter Drew Hinshaw brings us a bizarre but surprisingly common story from the shady world of international shipping.
