Re: Trump doubles down on Fire & Fury

Meet me here is six months. People still won't be able to find Korea on the map. This is going nowhere.

I don't think that N Korea is interested in committing suicide.

Does anyone here have any experience with having a smart TV attached to a network "wirelessly"?
